Sponsored Parachute Jumps
"Both of us have always wanted to do a skydive but we have been too chicken. When we saw the advert, we decided that being able to raise money and awareness for such a good cause was just the 'push' we needed!"
Jenny & Laura

You can help us by making an exhilarating 10,000 feet freefall sponsored parachute jump! No experience is needed and you can jump for free, if you raise the minimum sponsorship. To request an information pack email Marilyn Norman or call 020 8426 0929 or book online.

"We want to thank everyone at Mind in Harrow for giving us the opportunity to do the sky dive. We had an amazing time and were so pleased with the money we were able to raise."
Jenny and Laura.

Fundraising Events

You might prefer to organise a more 'creative' fundraising event. Think of what you enjoy doing and turn it into a fundraiser - the list is as long as your imagination. You could organise a:

  • murder mystery dinner party
  • pub quiz evening
  • dress down day at school
  • coffee morning and cake sale at work

If you would like support in organising your own event, please contact Marilyn Norman or call 020 8426 0929.

Fundraising Tips

  • Give yourself lots of time to plan the event and contact possible sponsors.
  • Approach as many people as possible for sponsorship (go through your address book, family, friends, work contacts, colleagues, suppliers).
  • Contact local press and let them know what you are doing.
  • Following up sponsorship pledges can take time, so why not use an online sponsorship form? The pledges are made and you can collect the donations once you have completed your challenge.
  • Thank your sponsors - you might want to do another event in a few years time and ask them for support again!

And of course, we are here to help you in any way we can, so for more support, contact Marilyn Norman on 020 8426 0929.

Charity Gig - A Huge Success!

Over 150 people came to the Bush Hall in West London on 27 April 2006 to hear ten fantastic, up-and-coming artists, one already signed by Sony, play an eclectic mix of music, with influences such as Jeff Buckley, Kris Kristofferson, Madonna and Blondie, ranging from “post punk” to “the blues”, and a man who has his own eclectic mix within his music!

We would like to thank all the artists who are generously giving their time for free, to help raise serveral hundred pounds for Mind in Harrow.
