Fundraise for Us

If you’d like to fundraise for us but aren’t sure where to start, you’re in the right place! Here’s some ideas to get you started.

For Individuals

Do a Colour-A-Thon

We have 59 colouring pages! Can you colour in all our colouring pages in 1 month? How many can you colour in in one day? Have your friends and family sponsor you. Download our colouring pages here.

Complete a Sponsored Mindful Walk

Did you know there are 52 miles between our Skipton programme and our Doncaster programme? Can you complete the challenge of walking the distance over a set time? You could even wear purple while you are walking! Try some of our mindfulness walking activities during your walk. Find the activities here.

For Groups

Have a Purple Day

How purple can you make your day? At Purple Patch, we start the day with a warmup dance to get us feeling energised – can you start the day with a boogie? What purple foods can you eat? How much purple can you wear? You could even include a purple fashion show as part of your day! Charge a small fee for people to take part.

Put on a Purple Quiz

We love a quiz at Purple Patch! Download our quiz sheets here. We have a variety of different topics, so everyone will be able to show off their knowledge. Charge a small fee for people to take part.

For Businesses

Host a Skills Auction

At Purple Patch, we love to learn different skills in art, music, dance and drama. Discover your colleagues hidden talents by offering up your services to the highest bidder. You might offer to teach crochet or a dance workshop, or offer your washing up services!

Skip your Morning Coffee

Having  tea and coffee in the morning is a big part of our day at Purple Patch Arts. Why not challenge your colleagues to skip their morning coffee and donate the money instead?

Create Your Own Challenge

At Purple Patch Arts we love to come up with new ideas, so why not create your own fundraiser? You could learn something new, challenge yourself to achieve something you’ve never done before, or even create a series of activities to complete.

You can raise money on websites like JustGiving, as a Facebook Birthday Fundraiser, or you could collect sponsors using a sponsorship form, which you can recieve as part of our Fundraising Pack.
