Fundraising:

Headway Glasgow organises various fundraising and social events over the year – keep an eye on the newsletter or our Facebook page to find out what is coming up. You may also want to support us by buying some of our Christmas Cards – designed by people in the Art Group –  or by buying an original work of art. We also have two books written by people in the Writers’ Group which are available as Kindle versions.

We find that fundraising is a good way of bringing people together to enjoy themselves while helping a good cause. Fundraising events that people have been involved with in the past have included:

  • Can collection
  • Bag packing
  • Pub quiz nights
  • Sponsored events
    • Runs
    • Walks
    • Abseils
    • Long distance cycles
    • Leg waxing
    • Pyjama wearing
  • Church Collections
  • Treasure hunts
  • Musical evenings
  • Craft stalls

and, of course, we receive many individual donations.

Headway Glasgow can give you things like posters, leaflets, T shirts, sponsor forms and support to make your fundraising successful.

Our current grant funders are : NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, DWT Cargill Trust and The Mary Andrew Charitable Trust. We also benefit from substantial funds raised by the Rob Thomson Fundraisers within the Edrington Group (with match funding from The Robertson Trust). In addition to these we have numerous fundraisers who contribute very generously to our income.


We are very, very grateful to all the people who have donated or helped to raise funds for Headway Glasgow. Without your help, we would not survive and a vital service would be much diminished.

 

Just so you know….

Headway Glasgow is very careful with it’s fundraising activities. We do not use the hard-sell methods that have created bad publicity for some charities recently. If you are kind enough to donate money to Headway Glasgow, we will not use that as an excuse to pester you in the future. Also,

we do not employ the companies that stop passers-by in the street and get them to sign up to something;

we don’t do mail-shots, cold call by telephone or employ third parties to do that for us;

we do not pay commissions to companies to raise money for us. Justgiving does take a small administrative fee from the monies raised by our donors, but this saves us the cost of managing a secure website and other costs involved in handling donations.

Finally, we won’t share your details with other charities or businesses.
