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.

For the latest information on our upcoming events, please check our events page.

Our fundraising team is working hard to rearrange postponed events for later in the year. We will update the events page when dates have been confirmed.

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

There are many things you could do to raise money for us while at home, these include:

  • 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. 
    • Step-a-thon! Pledge to do a certain number of steps per day at home. Set your own target and ask friends and family to sponsor you, if they are able to, through your Facebook Fundraiser or a JustGiving page. 

  • 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. We can send you a cardboard collection box for you to use as a piggy bank, just email [email protected] to request one.  

  • Have a spring clear-out
    • Our charity shops are currently closed but when they reopen, we will be in need of good-quality donations. Use this time at home to clear out your wardrobe and put aside any items you would like to donate.

  • 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.
