10 for 10 challenge

‘10 for 10’ Challenge ~ Join Create in celebrating its 10th anniversary and help us raise £10,000 by taking part in one of 10 fundraising challenges

Create is celebrating its 10th anniversary throughout 2013/14!  To mark this important milestone, we want to get as many people as possible involved in telling our story.  We have decided to gather reflections from our participants, community partners, volunteers, artists, funders and Patrons; celebrate our participants’ achievements; and provide 10 creative ways in which you can help us to raise £10,000 so we can continue to use the creative arts to transform lives.

There are many ways in which you can join us in celebrating our tenth year.  We would love you to jot down your reflection about Create and send it to us at reflections@createarts.org.uk.  This could be a few sentences about a project you took part in, or a poem, picture or song that reflects what the experience meant to you.  It would be great to know what the project was and when you took part.  When you send it, please let us know if we can use your name or if you would prefer to remain anonymous.  On the 10th of each month, we will post these reflections on our website.  Inspire someone with your story today!

Below are 10 different fundraising challenges – we hope that one or more of them will inspire you, your friends, and colleagues to support Create.  No amount of money raised is too small!  Click on the challenge to find out more … and to see our Chief Executive, Nicky, attempt to demonstrate it!

If none of our ideas appeal to you or you have a fantastic fundraising idea or your own, you can still support us.  Come up with your own way of raising funds and let us know what you are planning and when.  Be as creative as you like – we have had suggestions of a flash mob, pub quiz and cabaret night!   Whatever challenge you set yourself, we would greatly appreciate your support!  Use this opportunity to be creative and stretch yourself.
