Bill Bailey Fundraising Award

What is it?

In September 2017, we launched the Bill Bailey Fundraising Award Competition, inviting supporters and members of the public to take on the challenge of raising as much money as possible for Good Vibrations, as imaginatively as possible.

To incentivise your participation and success, we will award the winner “The 2017 Bill Bailey Fundraising Award” endorsed by the great comedian, and musician Bill Bailey, our patron. First, second and third place will also receive a personalised certificate and photo, a pair of Bill Bailey tour tickets, and publicity online and in our annual report.

You might want to do a sponsored run, put on a concert, E-Bay your unwanted clothes, parachute out of an aeroplane, hold a cake sale, have a non-uniform day, or something completely different … All ideas, no matter how simple or extravagant will contribute to raising money for a great cause. Please help!

Who can enter?

Anyone can enter the Bill Bailey Fundraising Award Competition – whether you are at school or uni, a supporter of Good Vibrations, a participant, a fan of Bill Bailey, or simply someone who would like to support the common good. You can even choose to join as a group, perhaps with your choir, workplace, or as a group of friends. As long as you are up for a challenge, we want you to enter.

Why should I enter this competition?

  • Because you will support a great cause by raising funds for our national charity
  • Because you can win the 2017 Bill Bailey Award for Fundraising, which is not only a personal achievement, but a great addition to any CV (or mantelpiece!)
  • Because you will challenge your creativity, and gain invaluable fundraising and entrepreneurial skills
  • Because you can work together with your best friends on it
  • Because it’s fun!
