Youth Clubs

Hold a Cerebral Palsy Sports Day

Sports days are lots of fun. So why not get your  youth club or group involved?

Hold your sports day as usual and include a Cerebral Palsy Sport fundraising element to raise funds for children and young people with cerebral palsy.

The whole group or pack could get involved – you could adapt it to whatever you want!

Every penny that you raise will help us to provide new opportunities for physically disabled young people to play sport. Here are a few ideas to help you out!

Every penny that you raise will help us to provide new opportunities for physically disabled young people to play sport. Here are a few ideas to help you out!

  • Shoot some hoops with your other hand? You could get sponsored per shot on target or for how many you could get in a set time.
  • Have a sponsored relay race – with each person doing a different activity?
  • Organise a penalty shootout. Put a teacher in goal and charge a small fee per penalty.
  • Sponsored relay marathon – see how far the whole group or pack could run.
  • It would be great if you could hold a fundraising multi sports day getting people in your group to set themselves personal challenges and try to beat them.

There are so many different options to raise money – just remember that every penny really counts!

Think about different ways to make money

  • Why not have a stall selling drinks?
  • Ask parents to make a donation to come to watch the sporting events.
    Top tips for organising your Cerebral Palsy Sport’s Day:
  1. Your Cerebral Palsy Sports day could be your usual sports day or you might want to hold a special event after school or at a lunch time.
  2. Make sure you have booked a venue, hall, gym or playing field.
  3. Make sure everyone knows about it.
  4. Sporting equipment – Make sure you have everything you need.

  6. Have fun!

How do I claim Gift Aid?

You can increase the value of donations to CP Sport by making Gift Aid a part of your sponsored event.

For every £1 people sponsor you, we can claim an extra 25p from the government in Gift Aid at no extra cost to your sponsor. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Check the sponsor is a UK tax payer
  2. We need their name, home address, postcode, donation amount and make sure they tick the Gift Aid box (please get the sponsor to fill in the form)

Send your sponsor forms in with any money.
