Getting started with your fundraising

This August, families, friends, children and colleagues across the UK will be ditching the duvet, banishing the blanket and packing away their pillow. And we can’t wait for you to join us!

It’s free to sign up for Boycott your Bed – all we ask is that you try and fundraise as much as you can for Action for Children.

Not sure where to start? We’ll be sending you emails along the way, including helpful hints and tips or check out our fundraising resources.

Fundraising resources

Every penny you raise will help vulnerable children and families who are in desperate need.

Creating your team

Everyone is welcome to take part and boycott their bed this August. You can take part solo, with friends, as a family, with your household, with colleagues or even your local community group.

Although we might not be able to all be together in person, don’t let that stop you from growing your virtual team.

If you’re looking to build a team, or just keen to share our new event far and wide, we have lots of resources you might find useful, including templates, flyers and more.

Remember to take a selfie or photo so we can see where you’re sleeping. Share your pictures with us on social media using #BoycottYourBed.

Preparing to Boycott your Bed this August

How you choose to Boycott your Bed is completely up to you. You could spend the night on your sofa, build a den in your living room or pitch a tent in the back garden. As long as you’re not in bed, you’re doing it right!

On the night, as well as hearing more about our vital work, there will be a whole evening of live streamed entertainment to look forward to. All you need is your smart phone, tablet or computer and access to the internet.

We will be sharing full details nearer the time. Once you’ve registered we’ll send you all the latest news by email so make sure you look out for those in your inbox.

By signing up for Boycott your Bed you’ll be part of a national movement to help vulnerable children and families across the UK.
