Fundraising Ideas and Events


We raise most of our funding through our members and their families doing all sorts of sponsored activity and fundraising events.
Think about anything you enjoy doing in your spare time, it can be a fantastic way to fundraise and show your support for the Lewy Body Society. Here are some of the ideas:

  • Coffee Morning
  • Car washes
  • Cake sale
  • Jumble sale -Get friends together and ask them to donate unwanted presents
  • Marathon Running
  • 5k or 10k Running
  • Long Distance Walking
  • Long Distance Bike Riding (see Phil and bike-right)

We can help you with posters, invitations, provide copies of our brochure. Just by getting people “talking” about DLB you are promoting awareness. Whatever you enjoy doing can be turned into a fundraising event.

On June the 4th 2011 , Hannah Bradley launched herself out of a plane at 13,000 ft, soaring over Netheravon, near Stonehenge. She funded the jump herself so that all money raised goes to The Lewy Body Society. Hannah’s Grandad was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia a couple of years ago.
