Help us help you to fundraise!

What you can do…

Without support from wonderful people in Aberdeen, we would be unable to ensure that we continue our important work with communities. We are very grateful for any support that you can offer us, whether that is organising your own bake sale, running a 10k or even organising a collection for your next birthday.

Taking on a fundraising event should be fun, and our Fundraising Officer is always on hand to ensure that shmu are doing everything they can to support your event. Organising a fundraising event or taking part in a challenge event is great fun and our fundraising team are on hand to support you every step of the way.

Take on a Challenge

There are many events throughout the year that you can take part in and raise funds to support our work. Some local events are listed below:

Aberdeen Half Marathon 26th August 2018
Gung Ho 8th September 2018
SPARTAN 15th September 2018
BEAST 22nd September 2018

If you sign up to take on a challenge on our behalf, you will get a fundraising pack including a shmu tshirt to wear on the day, and a tote bag, sponsored by the kind people at Red Wings.

Organise an event

Our Fundraising Officer organises events to raise money for shmu throughout the year, but we welcome support from individuals who wish to organise something independently. There are so many ways to raise money – even at home – by organising a get together with friends, or taking advantage of your local community hall for a bigger event, for example:

  • Bake sale at work
  • Coffee Morning
  • Themed parties & clubs
  • Games nights
  • Bag Packing
  • Bingo night
  • School sponsored silence

Whatever your idea is, we want to support you and ensure that your efforts are a big success! Contact our Fundraising Officer at to get a fundraising pack, and for help with organising and promoting your event. We want to hear from you!
