Ways To Help
Find out how you can make a difference and support our cause
Host for the charity
Organise an event and donate the proceeds to us; anything from a coffee morning, a family picnic to a grand party. A handy guide packed with ideas and advice on organising an event can be downloaded here.
Foreign & Old Money
Donate your current and old foreign currency as well as old British coins and notes. If you work, find out if your company would agree to have a collection box for old and foreign coins.
Sell items on ebay. Either donate all of the sale or a percentage to us. When asked by ebay if you would like to make a donation to charity, search for “Brains Matter” and you can choose the % you would like to donate.
If organising a celebration such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary party ask guests to donate to us instead of giving presents.
Get sponsored for an activity. This doesn’t need to be a sporting challenge; it could be a sponsored weight loss or sponsored silence. You can set up a sponsor page on Virginmoneygiving so all your family and friends can sponsor you online.

Charity of the Year
Making us your Charity of the Year is a fantastic way to bring employees and customers together to meet your business objectives, raise money and have fun! Your company will benefit from developing staff skills, brand awareness and business opportunities.
Gifts in Kind
We don’t have shops, but we are always in need of items to use as raffle or competition prizes, to sell online and equip our offices. We would also love to hear from companies who may pro bono services to offer or can provide venues for our outreach services and fundraising events.
Sponsor One of Our Events
We have many events throughout the year and sponsorship helps us to raise more. From our annual golf day to our quiz, we need companies who want to show their financial support while benefiting from branding and media opportunities.
