Fundraising For AWARE
The best way to raise money for AWARE is to take part in one of our exciting events or our Mood Walks, but there are also many other fun and exciting ways to help fund the work of AWARE. You can support us by organising your own activity or get together with friends like a coffee morning, a bake sale, a disco or your own run or walk. Visit our Fundraisers Toolkit page for everything you will need to organise your own event.

Are you interested in setting up an AWARE Fundraising Group in your area? If so, we would love to hear from you. Fundraising is vitally important in AWARE - by helping us to raise money you would be making a big difference in helping to support and educate people on the illness of depression.There are many benefits to being part of an AWARE Fundraising Group. You’ll make some new friends, perhaps pick up some new skills and have some fun knowing that you’ll be making a massive difference to AWARE and, ultimately, to the lives of people in Northern Ireland affected by depression.
You will be involved in lots of exciting activities as well as organising your own events in your local area. We encourage fundraising group members to help out at local AWARE organised events like our series of Mood Walks, helping out at local bucket collections, encouraging others to join in and helping to grow the group by recruiting new members.
Donations In Lieu Of Flowers
Gifts in lieu of flowers to AWARE will help to change lives in memory of your loved one. These gifts will help AWARE to deliver our life changing Educational and Training programmes to young people, those in later years, parents and employees. AWARE has 25 support groups across NI which are provided free to those suffering from depression, carers and family members.
Our work has an immediate impact on the lives of thousands of people every day, often at some of the most difficult times in a person’s life.
How we can help:
Supporting AWARE through gifts in lieu of flowers is easy and simple to do. We know there are many other difficult decisions to make at this time. Please contact our AWARE offices on 028 90 357820/ 02871260602 for support and advice.
If you are placing a family notice in the press you may wish to ask people to make a donation instead of sending flowers. In this case the following wording may be helpful:
“Family flowers only please. Donations in lieu, if desired, can be made payable to AWARE and posted to AWARE, 40-44 Duncairn Gdns BT15 2GG”.
We thank and recognise every gift
Everyone who makes a donation in memory of your loved one will receive a personal thank you from AWARE, as long as we have their contact details. AWARE will also send the next of kin, or the preferred representative, an update on the total amount received. All the money we receive is spent within Northern Ireland.
