Hft | Plan your Winter Warmer fundraising event for 2020

Celebrate the holiday season and the end of 2020 by planning a festive Winter Warmer fundraising event. Guaranteed to keep your spirits soaring!


‘Tis the season to be merry

It could be a very strange holiday season this year. But whatever – and however – you’re celebrating, our brand new Winter Warmer fundraising pack will leave you feeling more festive than a turkey wrapped in tinsel.

From Christmas jumpers to festive film nights, we have plenty of ideas to help you stay cosy, connect with friends and family and raise money to support people with learning disabilities live the best life possible. Scroll down to sign up.

Why fundraise for Hft?

2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. But for people with learning disabilities and autism, the challenges have been particularly tough. The physical threat is very real – people with learning disabilities are up to 11 times more likely to die from coronavirus1 – but so is the impact on their mental health. Changes to routines, increased isolation and confusion about how to stay safe are all causing anxiety and distress. And at a time when they need Hft the most, our staff teams are also at risk.

We can’t predict how this will affect us in the long-term, but we know that it will have a long-lasting impact. Your support is always important to us, but more so than ever through this time of crisis. Every penny you raise through your Winter Warmer will help ensure that people with learning disabilities and autism receive the ongoing care, support and practical help they need to live the best life possible throughout the pandemic and beyond.

IMPORTANT: Your safety is our priority, so please keep an eye on the government’s Covid-19 advice to make sure you can host your Winter Warmer safely and legally. If you don’t feel able to fundraise at this time, why not come along to our virtual Winter Warmer concert on 16 December instead? Or there are still plenty of other ways to get involved and support people with learning disabilities and autism to live the best life possible.
