Wondering how you could help WYCE to lend Gambian people a hand up? There are many ways you can get involved - fundraising, spreading the word, or making a donation.
Fundraise for us
Donating your time or money to WYCE makes a huge difference.
You can talk to others about our work or make presentations
Join our Volunteer Forum which meets regularly in the West Midlands, and meet with other supporters to share news and ideas
Donate to WYCE – we particularly appreciate regular donations by direct debit or standing order
Encourage your employer or other company to become a corporate sponsor – as we are a registered charity, this is mutually beneficial.
Every pound makes a difference, and we really appreciate the work our supporters put into raising funds for WYCE. Past fundraising events and activities have included a skydive, marathon, fun run, a garden party and bake sale, bagpacking in a local supermarket, BBQ, quiz night, school sponsored silence and non-uniform day, wine tasting, workplace carwash and EBay sale. Many of our supporters give talks and presentations and make a collection – this spreads the word and raises money.
We have developed a fundraising guide to help you to organise your event/activity and make the most from it. We work with Virgin MoneyGiving, Charities Aid Foundation and Wonderful, and you can set up a fundraising page that links directly to us. Please let us know about your event, and we can promote it to other supporters.
