In order to protect our team, families and the wider community, we have had to cancel or postpone many of our fundraising events, which has, and will, have a significant financial impact on our charity.

However, we are pleased to launch our Virtual Balloon Race event which will be taking place this December:

Now more than ever in our 38-year history, we really need the support of our community.

In addition to our Virtual Balloon Race, there are many things you could do to raise money for us while at home, these include:

  • Taking part in our Virtual Challenge! Set your own challenge and ask friends and family to sponsor you, if they are able to, through your Facebook Fundraiser or a JustGiving page. 
  • A virtual fundraiser using Facebook Fundraising or JustGiving
    • Hold a video conference quiz or event with friends. You could make it public by doing a 'watch party' on Facebook or a private video conference with free apps like Zoom or Whatsapp. 
  • Shopping online is also an easy way to raise money for Brainwave - at no extra cost to you! Click here for more information.

  • Saving money on your commute by working from home? Pop any money that you are saving on public transport, tolls, takeaway coffee/lunch aside and then donate it to Brainwave, when you can.  

  • If you are able to, you can support Brainwave by donating through our website.


Anything that you can do to support Brainwave will ensure we can help many more children, like Clark and Rosie, reach their potential and achieve greater independence in the future.
