Fundraise for Reach
At Reach we genuinely believe that fundraising in itself is a purposeful and spiritual activity that releases vital resources to help others find hope and healing.
All that Reach has done in helping everyone who has come to us has only been possible because of supporters and fundraisers acting with generosity and compassion. If you, or your church, would like to help people find better lives through Christian counselling, we would be thrilled to welcome any fundraising activity on behalf of Reach.
Here are some of the ways in which people have kindly raised funds for Reach in the past while having lots of fun in the process.
Sponsored Runs – right up to marathon distance.
Triathlons – for when a run is not enough and you need to add a cycle and a swim.
Sponsored Walks – most recently in September 2017, when a group of 15 people completed a 30km pilgrimage walk in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside and raised around £5,500 towards our increasing property costs. This was organised by Reach and we all enjoyed good weather, great company, delicious cakes and the grand estate of Chatsworth. If you are interested in being part of our next walk, please let us know.
Golf Days – where golfers of varying ability have enjoyed the course and the 19th hole as well as nearest the pin, longest drive etc. whilst raising valued funds. If you would like to join or run a golf day, please let us know.
A Church Gift Day – when a church has identified one Sunday as an opportunity to show their care for those with mental health, emotional and relational needs in their community and across the Northwest, through giving or encouraging giving to Reach. If you would like to incorporate a Reach presentation as part of a Giving Day, please let us know.
Cake Sales and Coffee mornings – where the combination of lovely homemade food, drinks and connecting with others has also raised funds to care for those in need. If you would like to receive some marketing leaflets for your event, please let us know.
We would be delighted if you wish to do any of these. If you would like to add to this range of fundraising activities here are some further ideas and inspiration in our A –Z list of activities.
