Fundraising

Achieving our mission would not have been possible without our fundraising supporters who have organised and attended events, chosen us as their company charity, and taken on challenges.

There are lots of ways to help us raise funds for our work; from bake sales to taking part in the Great North Run, organising a cabaret or building your own bike and cycling it across the USA!  We are amazed by everyone who chooses to support us and what they achieve!

Below are some ways to raise funds on behalf of Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland.

Take part in one of our events

We often hold fundraising events, from Firewalking to Abseiling, Art Auctions and Outdoor Survival. You can make sure you are kept informed by signing up for our e-bulletin.  You can choose the types of information we send you when you sign up.

Hold your own event

Many people choose to hold fundraising events on our behalf, for which we are very grateful.  If you are keen to do this, please let us know, and we can support you with logos, leaflets, posters, sponsor forms and information.

Get in touch with us about hosting an event.

Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Choose us as your company charity

We are honoured when companies and charitable trusts choose us as their ‘charity of the year’ or as a long-term giving partner.

Please get in touch to discuss Corporate Partnership options.

Sponsored endeavours

Planning to raise funds for us through sponsorship?  We are always grateful when people choose us.  We encourage all of our fundraisers to use Justgiving to collect sponsorship, it’s secure and enables us to maximise what you raise when people choose to Gift Aid their donations.  We can also provide sponsor forms if you would like to collect donations offline.

Get in touch with us if we can help.

Go the Extra Half 

Some of you may be disappointed that the Great North Run on 13th September has been cancelled due to current circumstances. You do not have to let your training go to waste! Please “go the extra mile” to raise funds for us!

​​​Rape Crisis Tyneside Northumberland is asking you to #GoTheExtraHalf to raise money to help us to assist us in continuing to support women and girls. We invite you, to cover a half marathon distance (13.1 miles) and raise money for the work that we do at supporting survivors of sexual violence.

We also have opportunities for organisations to support us, become a Corporate Partner!

A fundraiser’s story

In 2018 Sarah cycled further than she ever had before, from Canada to Mexico!  That’s over 3000 km in a month!

Sarah said: “I’m a bike mechanic who loves climbing, carving, circus skills, and of course, cycling. I also volunteer at Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland, a charity that blows my mind with the amazing work they do and how many people they support.”

Sarah raised a whopping £5751.00 in total! All of the funds she raised were donated to our work.  We are astounded by her achievement.
