Run a marathon, host a coffee morning or hold a football tournament in aid of Youth Talk.
We need volunteers and supporters like you – so that we can always be there for our local young people.
Whether you’re planning on going it alone, getting your work involved or fundraising with your community, there’s something for everyone.
Dinner party – after nearly a year of lockdown, it’s time to get together! And what could be better than a charity dinner? Whether you cook a mean curry, have a family favourite dish or want to host a pizza party, choose your dish, invite the troops and cook up a treat in aid of Youth Talk.
Quiz night – host a quiz, sell tickets in aid of Youth Talk, and raise money and awareness. Ask local businesses to donate a raffle prize or something for a tombola to make it a night to remember.
Garden party – summer’s coming, restrictions are easing and it’s time to invite family and friends round for a garden party! Space for garden games? Charge for taking part. You can also ask people to make a donation to Youth Talk, put on a BBQ and set up a raffle or tombola.
Charity come dine with me – don’t worry about booking a restaurant, decide on your own menu and get polishing your silverware. This works best with four households. Take it in turns to host one another and each guest pays to attend. Don’t forget to score one another, share and tag us on social media!
Run or cycle – from couch to 5k, to a round the world challenge, there are hundreds of events and virtual challenges we would love you to run or cycle for us! Having a goal will help you get your kit on and out the door. And it is easy to set up an online fundraising page to help your miles mean more.
Teamtournament – football, rounders, rugby or volleyball – whatever your sport you can organise a charity match, asking teams to donate to compete for glory.
Take on a personal challenge – no alcohol till 2022? Swapping the car for the bike? No phones in the evening? The harder the challenge the more you will raise!
Sports day – everyone gets competitive around the egg and spoon! Charge teams to enter and don’t forget to buy a wooden spoon and winning prize!
Bake off –competition and cake. What’s not to love? Whether you work from home or regularly go into an office, get baking for donations.
Sunflower growing competition – who can grow the tallest, biggest or brightest sunflower? Charge to enter and get schools and work colleagues involved.
Is needed a year to keep Youth Talk running to help young people in St Albans and District.
Counselling sessions a week is our target for the coming months
Could help pay for a one to one counselling session to help a young person open up about what’s worrying them.
Can make sure there’s someone at the end of the phone when a young person is brave enough to take that first step towards getting help.
Still stuck and aren’t sure how to do your own thing to support us? We are here to help. Just drop us an email and we will happily help inspire you and support your fundraising efforts.
St Peter’s Church Youth Group organised their very own bake off
St Peter’s Church Youth Group organised a hugely successful bake off competition, even publishing the best recipes in a fantastic lockdown cookbook. Alongside recipes are the challenges the youth group set themselves each week to look after their own mental health.
