Aviva's Office Fundraiser
We rely on the support of individuals like Tyler Lamb who take the initiative to fundraise for us to keep our youth work services running. The idea of organising a fundraiser sounds daunting? It doesn't have to be! Get a team together, brainstorm ideas and get planning! Whether it's £100 or £1000 you raise, every pound will make a difference and support our life changing youth work services across Scotland.
Have a read of how Tyler Lamb at Aviva put together a successful fundraiser in her office:
"To celebrate LGBT History Month, Aviva’s Glasgow office decided to raise money for LGBT Youth Scotland.
To kick off the fundraising week we had the charity's fundraising officer Doro come in and give a short talk on the charity and how they support LGBTI young people across Scotland. This really got us motivated for the week ahead.
Our rainbow bake sale went down a treat - so many people came together to bake and buy some pretty spectacular cakes. Especially since people were still on a new year's resolution health kick, they welcomed a nice excuse to treat themselves to 'a cake for a good cause'!
We also had a rainbow raffle, filled with rainbow merchandise and some other great prizes that were kindly donated to us including some great vouchers from Nandos, Hair & Beauty salons, and car garages (MOT & Service). Our operations manager even donated a half day holiday! This really got people excited and they were practically ripping the tickets off us.
We also held a “Wear Your T-Shirt With Pride” day where we encouraged everyone to wear their most colourful T-Shirt and pay a £1 donation for the pleasure.
Overall, we had a fantastic week of fun raising much needed funds for LGBT Youth Scotland. Our office managed to raise £497.04 which was then matched by Aviva with our pound match funding scheme, raising the total to £994.08!
We know the funds we have raised will help LGBT Youth Scotland keep their youth work services running and make Scotland the best place to grow up for LGBTI young people!"
