Having done a few long live sets on Facebook during lockdown, it was suggested by friends and family that we hold a charity DJ event… We both love playing music, Darrell plays retro vinyl and myself I play digital music… It turned out to be a great night with over 100 people attending.

Spread festive cheer! 

As Buddy the Elf once said, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. 

Raise your voices this festive season for better mental health. You could: 

  • Hold a carol concert
  • Do some Christmas karaoke 
  • Host a Christmas party and ask people to donate £2 to add a song to the playlist 

Volunteering at festivals

Fancy attending some of the biggest UK festivals while raising money for better mental health?

We're delighted to have teamed up with My Cause UK to offer you the chance to volunteer at some of the UK's top festivals!

My Cause UK offers volunteer opportunities at All Points East, Secret Garden Party and loads of other festivals in the UK.

Donating from a single or album

We're extremely grateful to anyone who wants to raise awareness or funds for Mind through books, films, plays, or music.

Unfortunately, we can't endorse or accept fundraising from any content that hasn't been created with Mind. We also can't authorise the use of the Mind logo.

Mind may make an exception to this for materials developed with a corporate partner, funder or a Mind ambassador. An acknowledgement of support from a company isn't an endorsement of the company or its products.

Virtual music events

You don't always need a venue or a live audience for a successful music fundraiser.

Thanks to social media apps and live streaming websites, it's now easier than ever to showcase your talent from the comfort of your own home.

Whether you're live streaming a gig, teaching your instrument online, or getting your friends together for virtual karaoke, follow these three easy steps to set up your event.

Set your stage

There are lots of different apps you can use to stream or record your event, including Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitch, Zoom and Instagram Live. Just download your favourite app and get ready to press record.

Start fundraising

It's really easy to set up a fundraising page on Tiltify, or JustGiving is really quick and easy. Share the link with friends and family to buy a virtual ticket to your gig or donate to your stream and their donations will come straight to Mind.

Invite your audience

Set a date and time for your event and use social media to invite everyone you know. Don't forget to share the link to your Tiltify or JustGiving page!
