Fundraising ideas

Whether you're taking part on your own or with a group, there are lots of fun ways to raise vital funds for people affected by MND.

Hints and tips for individuals

Your silent kit

Your silent kit

If you’re staying silent for any length of time you’ll need to get prepared. Whether its notebook and pen, whiteboard or speech app the choice is yours.

Dress to impress

Dress to impress

Request a Silence Speaks t-shirt using the order form in your fundraising pack, or wear the sticker so others know you’re unable to speak and what you’re doing to make a difference for people affected by motor neurone disease.

Fun ideas for family and friends

Silent social event

Silent social event

Mime your way through a dinner party, dance the night away at a silent disco, keep it buttoned at your ‘stitch & bitch’ session or watch your favourite TV show in silence.

Golden tickets and fines

Golden tickets and fines

Oops... did I really just say that?! Download a sheet of Golden Tickets and donate to break your silence. If you accidentally slip up and speak during the challenge, donate a penalty fine.

Get your workplace involved

Nominate your workplace chatterbox

Nominate your workplace chatterbox

Every workplace has one; the colleague who just can’t stop nattering. Encourage them to take part and shut them up for the day in return for donations.

Tongue-tied team building

Tongue-tied team building

Being silent is a great way to develop non verbal communication skills. Hold a silent meeting or sweepstake, pass the silence baton from colleague to colleague, theme your event or try a silent leg wax if you're brave enough!

Silence Speaks for teachers and youth leaders

Silent games or sports

Silent games or sports

No talking doesn’t have to mean no fun! Silent games like charades or team sports like netball or football, played in silence are both entertaining and challenging. Offer a prize or certificate for the winner.

Learning through silence

Learning through silence

Silence Speaks can be incorporated into group sessions and lesson plans. Help young people to understand about disabilities and earn their disability badges. Use mobiles or tablets during ICT or mime in drama lessons.
