Fundraising for Mencap

Trafford Mencap relies on the generosity of people like you to transform the lives of people with a learning disability. Fundraising for Mencap can take on many forms – whether you are an individual, company, a group of friends, or a family there are many ways you can help Trafford Mencap.

Community fundraising –  help us to spread the word about learning disability while raising money, by doing things like street/event collections, bag packing in supermarkets or getting involved with our ever popular table top sales or our Christmas Carousel at The Rowans.

Corporate fundraising – we work with businesses on charity of the year partnerships and those who wish to support us through their workplace via payroll giving, providing sponsorship for special events, volunteering opportunities, and workplace fundraising activities. Companies can provide one-off donations, or choose us as their charity of the year.

Legacies – remember us in your will and help make life better for those living with a learning disability. We would be extremely grateful if you left a gift for Trafford Mencap in your will. It does not matter what size the gift is, you will make a substantial difference to those living with a learning disability – please let us know about this, so we can support you.

Event fundraising – Hold your own event from a tea party to a music gig; we have top tips on organising your own event and making it safe and legal whatever it is you choose to do. You could also take part in one of our organised events, from dinners to abseils and singing events – hopefully we cover all bases!

Sporting activities – Challenge yourself physically while helping us to raise money. Whether cycling, running, walking, abseiling, or even completing an overseas challenge we will help you all the way with sponsorship packs, sport vests, and fundraising ideas to help you achieve your goal.

Individual giving – Become part of our charity and join our membership scheme for just £15 per year, or become a regular giver either monthly or annually and helps us plan for the future at Mencap Trafford. Remember to gift aid your donations to maximise your gift even further.

Whatever it is you decide to do, please contact us as we have helpful packs, materials and ideas to support and inspire you. We are certain that you will have lots of fun, and you can be sure that the money you raise will make a big difference to our work.
