Why support us?

We believe that helping to improve health and wellbeing starts locally, bringing people together, helping them get active and empowering change in people's lives, which is why we focus on working in local communities. We're particularly interested in supporting people with Depression, Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease, because often people die early because of these. These health conditions are all too common amongst people who don't engage in physical exercise and live in some of the poorest areas of the country. They are also the top 3 killers of people in the UK. We want to prevent this for future generations.

We're not funded by local authorities or the NHS and rely on donations to subsidise our memberships so that everyone can access our programmes to get more active.

 

How You Help

We're not supported with funding from Local Government or the NHS.

Your fundraising efforts and donations will help us to:

 

Support and work in more local communities

Make getting active and improving physical and mental wellbeing accessible for all

Allow our Gurus to support patients at local GP practices

Help people to live healthier and more active lives

Support future #ActiveApril events for free

Plan Your Fundraiser

 

What's your move?

So before getting too far ahead, the best starting place when thinking about what you want to do for ActiveApril is how do you want to get active.

So the first question you might want to ask yourself is

'Do I want to do something to challenge myself, or something I know I can do already?'

Make a list that answers both parts of this question, ways to get active that would challenge you, and ways to get active you might already be doing.

 

Think about the simple things like getting you and your colleagues to walk or cycle to work, taking part in an active sport like table tennis, football or golf, to the more challenging this like a 20 mile cycle ride, plank exercise competition between you, your family, friends and colleagues. There are loads of things you might think about, just remember to make them safe and achievable, because we want you to succeed.

 

Turn your ideas into fundraising

Here, you'll need to think about how much money you want to raise, and how much you think you can raise. Go make yourself a brew and consider out of your ActiveApril ideas which would be most popular amongst your friends, family and colleagues? What would be easiest to organise? Which idea might help raise the most funds.

 

Also consider whether you want your ActiveApril to be a competition like a cycling race, or who can hold a plank the longest, or whether you want it to be about you completing a personal or group challenge whilst supporting a good cause? Before you put the kettle on again, get on the blower to your friends and family and ask them for some help with ideas.

 

When and where

As it's ActiveApril and not ActiveAugust...(well not yet anyway!) pick a time in April which will be best, a weekend is often goo as your friends, family and colleagues wont be at work, and if they're not joining in the fun themselves they can be there to support you, or you can give them your fundraising cards so people can visit your Challenge Page to collect extra donations on the day. more on that HERE.

 

Now you need to thibk about the best place. This really depends on what your doing, something like a walk or cycle ride or run can easily be done outdoors at your local park, green space or square. You may find that your activity is something that needs to be indoors, so have a look around for free spaces you can use. Many supermarkets like Tesco, Sainsburys and ASDA often have free community rooms, try contacting their Community Champion, and even if you wont be using their space, the Community Champions at these stores are good people to approach to help you with fundraising.

Either way, what ever space you do decide to use, make sure you have permission first.

 

Get others involved in ActiveApril

It's great if you want to fundraise for ActiveApril on your own, but think about how much more you can achieve by getting your friends, family and colleagues involved, you can all take part together, or they can help you with organising and promoting your event, or helping you approach local businesses to support your fundraising by putting up posters, asking their staff to donate. Things work better when you're not in it alone.
