Fundraise at home

From skydiving to suppers, our spinal cord injury community has pulled out all the stops to raise essential funds for us.

And as we safely and slowly emerge from covid isolation, we can do even more to excite our community, family and friends. There are so many ways to support us, whether you want to jump out of a plane, organise a fish and chip supper, take part in a sporty challenge, or something else to suit you. We would say ‘no idea is a bad idea’, but that might be asking for trouble.

Put the fun in fundraising

Fundraising should be fun. But we know not everyone’s idea of fun is the same!  So do what you enjoy. Think about what you’re good at and use that as a starting point. Are you great at crafts – then why not hold a craft sale? Or if you could give Nigella run for her money, why not host a bake sale.

If you’d prefer a more active challenge visit our events page for ideas, look for local events, or if you’re feeling ambitious why not organise your own.

Get inspired by Jacqui’s fundraisers

Jacqui was injured at C4/5 (incomplete) after falling down the stairs in 2009. At the time she was a full time teacher, army wife and busy mum to two young children. She spent several months as an inpatient at Stoke Mandeville Spinal Centre.

Since then, Jacqui has done lots of fundraising for us, starting with walking the 96-mile Jurassic Coast from Exmouth to Dorset. She’s also organised a raffle through her Instagram profile that raised over £7,000. She said:

Each year as a family we try to help other families like us, whose worlds are turned upside down, and who will start their own fight to rebuild their lives as we did. I know that SIA provides the best support system and community within which to do that

Jacqui, one of our regular fundraisers 

She uses her fundraising events to also raise awareness about what life is like with a spinal cord injury. And therefore why their donations are so important.
