Community Fundraising

Leeds Mind has been providing mental health services for over 50 years. We are affiliated to Mind nationally but respond to local needs, this means the money raised through fundraising will stay in the local area and provide much needed services for people in and around Leeds with mental health difficulties.

We couldn't do what we do without you and your donations really do make a difference!

How you can help….

Holding a fundraising event can be a great way to raise money and have fun in the process. Your event can be as large or small as you want it to be, but however you do it we are here to support you every step of the way, ensuring that whatever you decide to do is a great success! Here are just some ideas of what you could do;

  • Organise your own event
    Get together with your friends & family and fundraise by organising your own bake sale, coffee morning, walk/active challenge, pub quiz
  • Organise a collection
    You could organise a collection at your school/university, local pub or event you are holding
  • Celebrate & donate
    Do you have a special occasion coming up and have everything you may need?  Could you do something amazing and ask family and friends to make a donation to Leeds Mind instead of a birthday, wedding or Christmas present?
  • Take part in an organised challenge event
    Such as the Leeds 10k/Half Marathon/Leeds Marathon, Total Warrior, Tough Mudder
Other ideas:
  • Non uniform day
  • Car boot & car washing days
  • Charity auction
  • Charity football match
  • Sponsored silence
  • Sponsored walk
  • Danceathon
or anything else you can think of… the possibilities are endless!

We can provide

  • Collection tins/buckets
  • Leeds Mind leaflets
  • Banners
  • T-shirts
  • Sponsorship Forms
  • We are also able to support your event on Social Media

Next Steps

  • Decide what sort of activity / event you would like to do, choose an event that you will enjoy organising or taking part in
  • Set up your fundraising page (find out how here) and someone from our fundraising team will be in touch to see how we can support you.
