Our main fundraising activity each year is our sponsored sleep out. This year, as we are now working in partnership with St Basils, we will be organising a joint sleep out to be held in October in Coventry.

Details are still to be confirmed and we will update our social media with information as soon as we have it. So please follow our Facebook and Twitter to find out more.

Organise your own fundraiser:
If you can’t wait for the sponsored sleep out, or that event is not for you but you still want to help, why not consider organising an event to raise funds for us? Doing so will make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people in Coventry and Rugby.

If you want to organise your own fundraising or sponsored event at your home, school, church, YMCA or place of work, we would really appreciate your support. If you are stuck for ideas here are a few to get you started:

  • Quiz or a fashion show
    Organise a quiz or fashion show and sell tickets. Not only is it a great way to raise money, it’s also good fun!
  • Afternoon teas or coffee morning
    Why not get baking and have people round for a coffee morning or afternoon tea? You can ask people for a small donation or hold a raffle and sell tickets.
  • Car Boot Sales
    Set up a table to raise vital funds for the YMCA at a car boot sale and sell your unwanted bric-a-brac.

Whatever you decide to do please email us with your plans and ideas and we will do what we can to help raise awareness of your event, admin.cw@ymcaheartofengland.org.uk.
