Do Your Own Thing

Why don’t you turn your fundraising ideas into reality by hosting your own event and help raise money and awareness.

Do you already know what you want to do and how to make the most of your idea? If not check out our A-Z of fundraising ideas for inspiration and read our fundraising guide for details on how to run a successful event.

Epilepsy Scotland

There are so many different fundraising ideas and some take more planning than others, so choose something that you can manage. If it’s your first time you might want to stick to something that interests you and that you can have fun with.

Want to chat over your ideas first? Perfect, we are here to support and help you get your fundraising ideas off the ground, just give us a call on 0141 427 4911.

No idea is too unusual or small for us to help with. We like to say almost any event can be turned into a fundraiser - we just need to get thinking!

How we can help

We can provide many resources for your fundraiser including:

  • Personalised sponsor and posters
  • A press release to market your activity
  • Home Money Boxes or collecting cans for public use
  • A letter of authority so you can fundraise on our behalf

And of course, we can supply you with information, hints and tips to maximise your fundraising.

Whether you are an individual doing your own thing, work colleagues, school friends, family members or part of a club, we are here to help you every step of the way. We want to help you make the most of your event and enjoy it!

Every penny you raise will go a long way to helping the work we do for the 40,000 people in Scotland who have epilepsy. Thank you.

Raise Money

Why don't you join us in raising funds, meeting people, getting fit, or doing something just that little bit different.

Adrenaline ChallengesRunning & WalkingDo Your Own Thing

We have events to suit everyone from trekking through Peru, running in marathons and road races, to jumping out of planes.

Or you can do your own thing, like organise a coffee morning, plan a sponsored walk, have a karaoke or race night at your local pub, hold a second hand book sale, pack bags at your local supermarket, or organise a ladies luncheon. The list is only as limited as your imagination.

We will give you the support and encouragement you need to get your fundraising off the ground and help you make the most of your activity.

We can provide many resources including:

  • Personalised sponsor forms

We like to publicise your support by telling your fundraising story and printing your photos in our Epilepsy Newsletter which is sent out to all our supporters twice a year.
