There are many ways you can help to raise funds for YMCA Somerset Coast. You can get involved in one of our sponsored events, such as Sleep Easy or Tour de Y. Come along to other events like Mendip Mower Racing or the Summer Starter or organise your own fundraising event.

If you are organising your own fundraising or sponsored event at your home, school, church, YMCA or place of work, don’t forget to contact us for posters, leaflets, branded materials and collecting tins.
We would love to hear from you so please get in touch on info@ymca-sc.org

Fundraising ideas

Put on an Event
Put on an event such as a quiz or a fashion show and sell tickets. Not only is it a great way to raise money, it’s also good fun.

You could hold an auction dinner. Ask individuals and local businesses for items that money can’t usually buy. Individuals could offer an hour’s gardening, an evening’s babysitting or a week in their holiday home. Local businesses could offer a studio portrait, a hamper or a haircut.

Sponsored Events
The possibilities are endless. Choose an event and collect sponsorship. You could run, swim, dance, sleep, sing, eat or be silent.


Download one of OUR sponsorship forms now, and fill in the relevant details. Print it off, collect your sponsorship, and return to us. It’s as easy as that!


If you have planned a great event, don’t forget to contact your local press. The more people who know about your efforts, the more money and awareness you’re likely to raise.

The best way to manage your fundraising is to set up a personal fundraising page online which is a simple way to collect your donations and sponsorship.
