Our mission is to raise the aspirations of teenage girls in the UK aged between 12- 16 and we do this by creating and delivering 2 early intervention programmes in schools, namely a mentoring programme for middle girls called BIG SISTER and an emotional coaching intervention for at risk girls called STARDOM. Alongside these we also deliver workshops, Role Model Relay event and bespoke programmes.
When it comes to raising funds anything goes! Apart from lap dancing marathons, botox parties and other obvious no nos! You could also help by adopting us as your cause…

Take part in an exerthon as an individual or family – if you have a treadmill run or climb distance equivalent of iconic journey or mountain.

Sponsored silence, great one for the kids!
Baking circle- ask all pals who live close to join circle for a fee – each week you all bake something and deliver to nominated household in the circle ie Jane bakes flapjacks for Joanne, Joanne bakes a pie for Helen, Helen bakes a cake for Caroline etc. You could also extend this challenge to include delivering baked goods to the vulnerable in your community too. A double whammy!
Dress for dinner – get sponsored to dress up for dinner either black tie or fancy dress with what you get create in the house, then video or post pics.
Lip sync to your favourite song or recreate your favourite pop video or dance then upload to our YouTube channel and we will publish the top five, monthly on our social media feed.
These are just a few but the list is endless and could include crafts, knitting, garden activities etc. In all cases you can set up your own JustGiving page via our website, so it is easy to collect money. If you do not want to set up a JustGiving page you can simply collect money and pay direct into our account. Just email us for details. firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some ideas/things that have been done before….Challenge yourself physically – sky dives, fun runs, dog walks, hill climbs and even mountain treks. Get healthy, get fit, get on ya bike and get moving!
Let’s party – invite your family, friends, work colleagues and wider network to meet and chat at afternoon teas, pub quizzes, karaoke nights, murder mystery dinners, curry nights, car-boot sales, treasure hunts, fashion shows etc
Get creative – dye your hair purple for a month, compete in a chocolate eating contest, host a silly sports day, challenge your boss to some sort of dual, have a dress down day or non uniform day.
And remember your employer may match whatever your raise and/or may also support our cause so no harm in asking.
