Fundraising is what allows PKAVS to make the difference it does. Individuals, groups, schools, businesses, and others help us raise thousands of vital pounds each year.
You can take part and raise funds for one of PKAVS organised events or come up with your own - you could create a sporting or music event, hold a raffle or auction, or get sponsored to do something you love, or experience anew challenge. Here are some ideas:
- Fun Runs and Races: From friendly 5k to a full-on marathon, there’s a run out there to suit everyone!
- Charity Treks and Challenges: Some daring PKAVS staff and fundraiser have conquered Tough Mudder - are you up for it?! Or look to consider charity treks and challenges abroad.
- Sponsored walks: Get out and about in the beautiful Scottish countryside exploring some of the most popular charity walks we have to offer.
- Organise an event: Bake sales, car washes, dress down days, clothes swaps, sponsored silences, sleep overs, raffles, and dinner parties – there’s no shortage of ideas.
