Fundraise

If you would like to fundraise for Sporting Minds UK, we would be extremely grateful. This can be in the form of anything from setting your own personal sporting challenge in the times of Covid-19, hosting an event at your local club (with relevant social distancing measures applied) to planning to run a marathon, once larger sporting events begin to take place again.

All money from fundraising helps to enable Sporting Minds UK to make a difference – raising awareness of positive mental health in sport and it also funds our specialist one to one support around mental health in young athletes.

We will be pleased to help to promote your events by issuing press releases on your behalf to your local media, and/or specialist press and media, to obtain wider coverage and support for you, plus we’ll feature fundraising campaigns on our social media platforms and on our website.

For fundraising related enquiries, and if you’d like our help with your local PR, please contact hello@sportingmindsuk.org.

If you would like to make a donation instead of fundraising, please head over to our ‘donate’ section.

Our current fundraising initiatives are as follows:

First Anniversary Fundraising Campaign

Sporting Minds UK, came into being on 26th November 2019. The then 19 year old Callum Lea, through personal experience in his own cricket career, knew there was a gap in specialist mental health support for young representative sportspeople. We have already helped 180 young athletes directly, through our fully funded support service with BUPA, and 1000’s more indirectly through our awareness raising work.

Our goal is to raise £10,000 between now and the end of December 2020 to mark our first Anniversary on 26th November 2020. With this, we will:

1) Fund one to one mental health support for a further 100 young sportspeople who really need it

and

2) Continue to raise general awareness of how mental health is just as important as physical health for young athletes, particularly in this time of Covid-19.

So what can you do? The DONATE link is here – https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/sportingmindsuk  or alternatively if you would like to raise funds, you can set up your own event page that links directly to our campaign.  If you set up your own event page, do let us know if you’d welcome some local PR support, to help raise awareness of your event or challenge. 

If enough people support this project, we will be able to offer specialist mental health one to one support for a further 100 young people, to help get them back on track in their chosen sport. It also has the potential to make a huge positive difference to the rest of their lives (and even to save some lives), while providing UK sport with a talent pool of amazing young athletes, across all sports.
