Fundraising can be more fun with others! Why not get your work, school or community group involved in raising funds?
Choose us as your community group’s charity of the year or work in partnership with us and we’ll do everything we can to help your fundraising be a success.
Are you part of a club, group, organisation? Many community groups and clubs support charities on an annual or one-event basis. Does yours? If so, could you nominate us as your chosen charity?
Here are some people who’ve done just that.
The ladies of Minchinhampton Golf Club, led by their captain Pat Spencer, undertook a variety of activities to raise money last year. Raffles, golfing challenges and a talk from a beautician are just a few of the activities that helped to raise a whopping £3,500, which was split between us and another charity.
We raised the cash by having a couple of charity days when we had a competition but no cash prizes. All the competition entry fees went to my charity account and the ladies kindly donated items for a raffle on each day. We also ran a raffle on Lady Captain’s Day, on our Open Day when competitors come from other clubs, and Invitation Day. We also ran a competition to guess the length of my drive at our drive in January.
Staff at Broad Opticians in Alsager, Stoke on Trent, held a ‘Big Breakfast Event’ for staff and customers during World Glaucoma Week in March and helped to raise glaucoma awareness as well as raising £64 for us.
We wanted to help raise awareness of glaucoma and the importance of regular sight tests – especially for people with a family history. We offered breakfast to any patients or customers walking by in the form of breakfast pastries, tea and coffee. Those who took part were offered glaucoma information and asked for donations towards the cause. As well as giving out information in the practice we also posted daily details on glaucoma such as causes, treatments and types of glaucoma on our social media. We really enjoyed taking part and had positive feedback from everyone who took part in the big breakfast, as well as a great social media responses.
Could you find a home for a Glaucoma UK collection box? We are seeking places on the high street to host a collection box and would love to hear from you if you can take one. Collection boxes can raise significant income for us, as well as raise awareness of glaucoma and the charity.

From raising vital funds to growing glaucoma and eye health awareness, our corporate and group supporters play a crucial role in our sight-saving work. By working together, we can reach more people and end preventable glaucoma sight loss.
We’d love to hear from you about how your company, club, school or group can make a difference to people with glaucoma and raise money while having fun.
