Why not hold a skills showcase at your club and bring the local community together? Whatever you do - whether it’s breakdancing, keepy-uppies or juggling - it’s a top way to attract new members, and we bet you’ve got the skills to draw a crowd!
Challenge your group with a time trial. Dance-a-thon, skip-a-thon or even hula-hoop-a-thon, it’s sure to spark a bit of healthy competition!
Leaders vs young people challenges are always a popular way to get everyone up on their feet and fundraising.
Make and sell healthy drinks and snacks at your event to keep energy levels up and raise even more money.
Collect your fundraising money the easy way with an online giving page. Your group can track how much money you’re raising, and you can send a link to parents and carers to encourage extra donations.
Alex struggles with her mental health and lives with schizophrenia. Severe bullying made her life even harder. Thanks to the WAVES project at YMCA East Surrey - partly funded by Sport Relief and the #iwill fund - she’s learning to understand her issues, and has found new ways to express herself. She’s now feeling happier, in herself and at school.
