Charity tea parties

Always popular if they involve cake! Why not invite friends round and provide them with tea/coffee and cake in return for a donation to Facial Palsy UK?


Some churches have retiring collections for charities. If you attend church, ask if they would consider supporting Facial Palsy UK.


Eat, drink and raise money! Provide a meal and ask your guests to donate what they would have paid for a meal in a restaurant. Find out more.

Employer support

If your employer supports charities, ask if they would consider Facial Palsy UK. Dress down days and cake sales are popular choices. Or perhaps they have a charity of the month scheme you could put Facial Palsy UK forward for?

Do you have an old car which needs scrapping? Giveacar is a not-for-profit social enterprise that helps you donate your old car to the charity of your choice. Find out more.


Some people request donations to Facial Palsy UK instead of receiving birthday, Christmas or anniversary presents.


Raffles are always popular, but be sure to follow the guidelines from the Institute of Fundraising to ensure all legal requirements are followed. More information is available in our Fundraising Information Pack.

Sponsored events

Support Facial Palsy UK by collecting sponsorship monies to support your efforts with an event or challenge. e.g. bike rides, marathons, half-marathons, ultra races, swims, Three Peaks Challenge, etc. We can provide sponsorship forms or you can fundraise online using Virgin Money Giving.

Important information about Skydives

Due to the potential dangers of the sport, we cannot provide support for people taking part in parachute jumps or similar extreme activities. This is due to the serious legal and insurance implications for this kind of activity. If people would like to take part in a Skydive to raise funds ‘in aid of’ Facial Palsy UK then they will need to organise this in their own personal capacity. This kind of activity is not covered by our insurance policy.
