During 2016, BYHP was truly blessed to receive lots of kind financial donations from various people who had raised funds for us by doing a number of activities.
However, many donations came out of the blue and whilst wonderful, we thought it would be nice to be more aware of the kind people who are working on fundraising events, activities and campaigns in aid of BYHP. We wanted to create a programme that could involve all of the fundraisers working together towards a common goal and would inspire everyone to talk about it on social media and around the town.
So, to challenge ourselves, Tim our CEO devised the “BYHP 100 in 2017 Fundraising Challenge” which consists of us identifying and recruiting 100 different individuals, organisations, groups and businesses to help us generate up to £50,000 in fundraising income, approximately 20% of BYHP’s total annual income.
Effectively, we want to build a community of fundraisers who we can promote/ spotlight in our communications, in the press and on BYHP’s website to publicly showcase the amazing fundraising which goes on.
We have created a specific new logo and campaign pack which we hope will answer all of your questions and we have certificates for everyone taking part and raising funds for BYHP. We also hope to add other elements to the programme as we go through the year, which will in fact end on 31st March 2018 as we are realigning our events and fundraising year to BYHP’s financial year rather than the calendar year.
You’ll see the logo has a brick background as it represents BYHP’s focus on housing, but also represents a challenge to overcome or an obstacle to break through and this is certainly a breakthrough challenge to go for £50k in one year.
So, we hope you will join us and help BYHP achieve the £50,000 target!
Our blog is a great way to stay up to date with current events and projects, stories from our young people and the general goings on at BYHP.
