Posted by | Events, gratitude | No Comments

We are looking for businesses to take a full page ad in our A5 Ripple Ball programme in exchange for a donation of £250.

Each guest – and there are 400 of them – will receive a programme and this is a great way to advertise your business to them.

As volunteers, we organise the Ball ourselves so you can rest assure that your donation will go towards our fundraising projects.

If you are interested, or know someone who might be – do get in touch – we would love to hear from you.

If you would like to sponsor any other part of our event then do let us know.  (Entertainment, table centrepieces, table prizes, reception drink, raffle prizes )

Charity Skydive

CHARITY SKYDIVE

Any daredevils fancy getting to do a skydive whilst fundraising for It’s Good 2 Give!

Tandem parachuting uses a dual harness,  you are securely attached to one of the fully qualified and experienced instructors who will guide you through the whole jump from the exit, through freefall, piloting the canopy and finally the landing.

Exiting the aircraft from up to 10,000ft above the ground, you’ll experience approximately 30 seconds of free-fall – diving through the air at up to 120 miles per hour – before the instructor deploys the parachute at around 5,000ft.

Our Charity Skydive will be on Saturday 29th September 2018 at Fife Airport, Glenrothes.

 

Requirements for being eligible to do the sky dive

– Maximum weight of 14 stone

– Minimum age 16 years (those 16-18 years need parental supervision)

– Minimum fundraising requirement of £500 which includes cost for the sky dive

 

If you would like to book a space please email carla@itsgood2give.co.uk

Be quick though as we only have a few places available.

Can you help us in 2018?

Posted by | Donations, Events | No Comments

There are many ways to support our wee charity but in this post I am asking for help with prizes for our events during 2018

We would so very much appreciate help securing some high value prizes for  3 events we are benefiting charity at.  We provide 4 prizes for each event and in return receive financial donations from guests.  Prizes are often spa treatments, or a hotel stay with dinner and breakfast, or the loan of a car for the weekend with an afternoon tea at a 5 star hotel,  or a case of wine or a hair or beauty hamper.

For our own events this year we only have 2 events – Blingo and the Ball.   Blingo needs lots of raffle prizes with a value around £50 and this year we also need silent auction items as we are holding a silent auction for the first time at Blingo.  At our Ball we only have 4 main auction items but we make them special – we already have two pledged!  If you can donate or pledge something extra special ( a holiday in New York for example) or something unusual (remember Johnny Ca$h Coo? and the stunning Silver Ash Beaker)  we would love to hear from you.

If you are able to donate a voucher or product for any of our events please do get in touch – we have always organised our own events and receive such terrific support from you – fingers crossed you can help again this year.

Email me on Lynne@itsgood2give.co.uk if you can help

Thank you!
