Run your own event

Organising your own fundraising event can be great fun but also a very effective way of raising money. A fundraising event can be almost anything, from walking the West Highland Way, running a marathon, cycling from London to Edinburgh to doing your first parachute jump, swimming the length of Loch Lomond or skiing to the South Pole. You could organise a barbecue, a picnic, a dinner party, a Burns Supper or a karaoke evening. You could write a book, paint a picture, busk in Princes’ St or hold a carol concert. You could hold a whisky tasting or a wine tasting, even a Buckfast tasting. A golf match, a football match, a rugby match…

You are only limited by your imagination.

No matter how big or small, the project office will assist you however it can. Do let the office know what you have in mind so we can support you, offer resources if appropriate and feature your endeavours on these webpages. You can also use The Colonel’s Fund bmycharity pages to facilitate on line donations. Do bear in mind that some events can require a lot of detailed planning but it will always be worth it. The more effort you put in the more benefit the Colonel’s Fund will see.

Please see the ‘Fundraising Events’ form to get advice and ideas on running your own event.
