Take part

Please see our Events Calendar for fun and challenging (or not so challenging) events held by us or by our supporters to raise vital funds for Life Education Wessex, such as:

  • Get a team of 6 together and take part in one of our Big Quiz Nights – held in Bournemouth and Southampton
  • Sponsored Swims, runs or walks

For any of the fundraising events we will supply you with personalised sponsor forms, or alternatively you may wish to set up a fundraising page on the Virgin Money Giving website site. You can then email the link to your personal fundraising page to colleagues, family and friends who can donate securely online. It’s much easier than collecting in sponsor money!

Why not organise your own fundraising event for us?

  • Coffee morning
  • Run a stall at a local fete
  • Sponsored event

Don’t forget: your employer may be happy to match fund any monies you raise for us and so double your fundraising income!

Or you could:

nominate us as a beneficiary of your employer’s Charity of the Year scheme

  • nominate us at your local Waitrose – start saving your green tokens!
