Get involved in #GivingTuesday for The Percy Hedley Foundation

#GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, takes place on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is a chance to give something back after all that shopping! #GivingTuesday reminds everyone it’s good to give – and encourages people to come together and share the goodwill.

Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering some time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday aims to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate their time, their money or their voice to help a good cause.

This year, we’re asking for your help on #GivingTuesday. Whether you make a donation, organise a fundraising event, sign up for one of our events or simply spread the word about what we do. Whatever you do, you will help us to continue our work to improve the lives and opportunities for disabled children, young people and adults in the North East.

It’s a rallying call to everyone who wants to give something back. And to help you give back even more this year, we’re fundraising for our campaign with Just Giving.

Donate now at: https://www.justgiving.com/percyhedley or simply text TUES29 and the amount you wish to donate to 70070.

Last year, #GivingTuesday raised £6,000 a minute for UK charities and broke the world record for most amount of money donated online in 24 hours! #GivingTuesday now runs in over 70 countries around the world including the US, Canada, Germany, Spain, Singapore, Australia and Brazil.

Five ways to #MakeADifference on #GivingTuesday

Shout out loud on social media

Share one of our Facebook posts or retweet us to raise awareness of the work we do with disabled children, young people and adults in the North East. It’s a free and easy way to support us during the festive season.

Organise a fundraising bash

Organise a bake-off, have a dress down day at work, wear purple or green (or both!) for the day, or get involved in ‘Hats on for Hedleys’! Drive to work in a hat, wear a hat during lunch or wear one all day! If you do, send us your pictures on Facebook and Twitter! The crazier the hat the better!


Simply log on to our Just Giving page and leave a donation or to make it even easier we’ve set up a text code. Just text TUES29 and the amount you wish to donate to 70070. If you do, tell us on Facebook and Twitter!

Sign up for an event

We run several fundraising events throughout the year so why not sign up for one of them and raise sponsorship to support us. You could do the Great North Run, take on the Great North Swim or run up and down 1,000 steps for the very first stair run, Baltic 1000, at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts.


You may not have the time to spend an entire day volunteering or the money to spend on a donation, but you could donate a couple of hours of your time and help us do jobs like decorating and gardening. Why not get a group of your friends or colleagues together!
