Dystonia Society Tea Party

Whether you’re hosting your own or are helping out at a friends’ – tea parties are an exceedingly good way to raise money for the Dystonia Society whilst getting together with your pals. So why not have your cake and do it for the Dystonia Society too by organising a tremendous tea party.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, please get in touch with the fundraising team and we’ll help you get started and send you one of our specialised Tea Party Fundraising Packs (which also have some great recipes exclusive for the Dystonia Society courtesy of former Great British Bake Off Winner – Nancy Birtwhistle) to guarantee things won’t be a storm in a teacup!

Dress for Dystonia -Clothes Swap Party *Also suitable for men (stock photo unavailable) 
Clothesswapparty

This is an amazing apparel themed way of supporting the Dystonia Society. How many times have you made that impulse purchase online that was sure to become a timeless classic and make you the envy of not only your social circle but the entire world! Only to discover upon arrival that there was a reason it was on special offer after all (it was actually hideous), and it was subsequently cast down to the depths of your cupboard and has remained there cosily since 2008.  

Now it’s 2016 and just like the mathematical regularity of a solar eclipse, it is time to shake things up in the wardrobe department. But when you gaze upon that forgotten garment, you remember that it actually was quite nice, and that you only discarded it because you were annoyed it didn’t fit, and in retrospect it really would look better on your friend anyway.

So don’t just throw your things out! Have a clothes swapping party with your friends in aid of the Dystonia Society. We even have our own tailored Dress for Dystonia Fundraising packs just for this kind of event. To request one please contact the fundraising team by emailing us at fundraising@dystonia.org.uk or call 08458031004 

* Calls to the above number cost 3p per minute  

 

Golf Extravaganza! 
Golfers

Keep the funds swinging in to the Dystonia Society this year by putting on your very own Golf Extravaganza!

If you and your friends or colleagues are keen golfers why not get in touch with your local club to see if they’d be willing to host an event or provide a discount in aid of our cause. It could be anything from playing five rounds in a single day, or a hole in one challenge, to a post-tournament party (with plenty of sand wedges). 

To tee things off please feel free to request one of our Golf Fundraising Pack by contacting the fundraising team by emailing us at fundraising@dystonia.org.uk or by calling 08458031004or save on postage by downloading it here:

Head Shave for Dystonia!
HeadShave

For many this is a truly hair-raising prospect. Although one for our really committed supporters, this fundraising activity really brings the donations in. We'd really appreciate the effort and it will all be worth it with the knowledge that the money raised will go a long way in funding the exceptional support services that we provide. 

 

Cheese and Wine Evening 
Cheeseandwine

Cheese and wine, what a combination, so much better than chalk and cheese. But not quite as grate a combo as a Cheese and Wine Event for the Dystonia Society. Get together with friends and family for a sophisticated and mature evening of fundraising, but beware of the looming cheese dreams afterwards.

To help make your event even more of a success, try contacting local business for raffle prizes and donations. Plus, what about making it a 1920s themed affair? That'll really improve the vintage!

Nominating The Dystonia Society to be your organisations' Charity of the Year is a fantastic way to raise money throughout the year. However if the place where you work doesn't have such a scheme, there are still tons of great ways to support us. Whether it's having a dress down day, office bake sale, quiz, guess the baby photos, or a space hopper race with your colleagues - there's sure to be an activity that makes you forget why you don't like Mondays.

 

 

 

Family Fundraising
liskenesa10k

 

Spend some quality time together fundraising as a family this year - like the Brady family from Northern Ireland who raised a whopping £1,300 by doing a local 10k run.  

Get the whole family involved in a local swimathon, table tennis tournament, cycle ride, fun run, or finally prove who's the best driver with a sponsored go kart race.
