Donations

Edinburgh Headway Group is an independent Scottish charity.  

You may be shocked to hear that every 90 seconds someone in the UK is admitted to hospital with a Brain Injury!

Yet despite this there remains a lack of funding and knowledge about this ‘invisible’ condition.

To maintain our work we are dependent on voluntary donations.  Currently, we have to raise 83% of our income to support our services.  Hence, fundraising is vital to us. 

By choosing to support our charity you are choosing to help make a remarkable difference in improving the quality of life of a person with a brain injury and for this we would be most grateful.  

Would you like to be part of our campaign to raise awareness and raise vital funds for Edinburgh Headway Group? This is a great time to inspire others to get involved to promote our work and/or sponsor an event.

Below are some ideas just to get you started but feel free to choose your own and tell us all about it - we would be happy to publicise it, and share it  on social media.

For example, you could:

  • Run an event in your community
  • Raise money with organising or participating in a sporting activity or a race
  • Organise a Bake-athon - making cakes and bakes makes it a marvellous way to involve others, and raise funds with both sponsorship and sales.
  • Abseil for EHG: anyone feeling adventerous?
  • Sponsor a member’s day at EHG?  £12.00 will enable a member to participate in a full day at EHG.
  • How about the ice bucket challenge in this lovely weather?  
  • Annual Collection: It is like a piggy bank thing. You can either do it on an individual, family, or community basis. Just devote a donation box, and keep making donations every now and then when you come across an unspent pence or a pound in your pocket. Encourage your friends,family and work collegues to do the same!
  • Car Wash: Choose either a community place, a parking lot, or a door to door option, offer to wash cars for a reasonable charge, and you will see people flocking to get it done.
  • Shave Your Head: If you are a daring person you may like this one!
  • Corporate sponsorship - Ask your employers to consider sponsoring EHG as their chosen charity of the year.

If you send your donation direct to us it would be particularly helpful if you are prepared to make your donation to us using the Gift Aid Form.
