Fundraising and Events

PANDAS Foundation need incredible fundraisers to help us keep our support services available to all parents, carers and their networks who need us. 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 10 men, will experience a diagnosed perinatal mental illness. We help support 739 service users on average each month through the helpline, email support and closed Facebook group. We need your help now, more than ever.

Below are just a few ways you can fundraise and get involved to support our work. Just £5 raised will enable a service users to call our helpline for 30 minutes, for free. £50 helps fund the admin to keep our email support and closed groups open and available to all.

We would also love to hear from you if you have any events coming up and would like to raise money for PANDAS Foundation. And if you are still in need of inspiration, we have a handy ideas pack for you with lots of popular fundraisers. Just click on the image to download 0ur ideas pack.

Please click through to our Enthuse platform set up your own fundraising page and start your own fundraising journey. You can also visit our Enthuse Profile where you can find information on our most current fundraising challenges, and how to sign up to them, to join Team PANDAS Foundation!

We truly appreciate each and every one of our fundraisers. Our charity is the best resource within the UK to keep this added pressure off the NHS. Please help us to keep this up

This is a simple process that involves setting up a link on our Facebook page, and sharing it with your friends, family and networks, who can then donate online. We can support and guide you through to set up your fundraiser – get in touch using the form below.

National Running Events

Running is a great way to improve our mental wellbeing. There are so many great events to take part in such as the Great Run series, Great Swim, Ultra Challenges and Walking events. Also, every year, we put in a bid for a place in the London Marathon.

Fundraise with children

Fundraising with children can be fantastic fun, and is a great way to teach young people about empathy and caring for others. Ideas include:

• Designing pictures of ‘parent and me’
• Mini fun-run/sports day
• Sponsored events – pram-push, skipping, swimming, book read, or even silence – if they can manage it!
• Easter egg hunt

Fundraise with friends

We all need friends around us, especially when we’re suffering with pre or postnatal mental illness.
