Hosting a fundraising event for the National AIDS Trust on World AIDS Day is a great way to support a fantastic cause, helping to champion the rights of people living with HIV and raise HIV awareness. You can do a little or a lot, we have something to suit everyone!
Help us end HIV by wearing red in your school, college or workplace this World AIDS Day. You can collect donations from everyone who wears red – or get sponsored to wear your most outlandish red costume!
Alternatively, help us celebrate NAT’s 30th birthday by dressing up in clothes from decade of our birth: the 1980s. Don your shoulder pads and leg warmers, dust off your denim, or dress as your favourite 80s celebrity!
Don’t forget to tweet your photos to @NAT_AIDS_Trust with the hashtag #LetsEndIt.
Traditional and timeless, get out your chef’s hat and host a bake sale for NAT. Take inspiration from the ribbon and make ribbon-shaped cookies with red icing, or a red velvet cake.
You could top your creations with a ribbon made from icing or strawberry laces.
NAT is proud to once more be a partner of the World AIDS Day Red Run, hosted by Positive East. The run takes place in Victoria Park, Hackney on Sunday 26 November, with two chip timed distances: 5k and 10k. The Red Run is a fantastic way to get fit and get involved, while raising awareness and money for HIV.
Registration is £15, which includes a free t-shirt, individual chip timing, free refreshments and a post-run BBQ in a heated tepee. You can sign up here. Just make sure to select National AIDS Trust when you’re asked if you’re fundraising for an HIV charity.
Test your HIV knowledge by hosting a quiz night. Invite your family, friends and colleagues, and raise money by making it ‘Pay to Play’.
Or if you’re a regular at a quiz night, why not ask the host to add in our special World AIDS Day round and donate a proportion of the takings to NAT?
Sell refreshments at your fundraiser, or ask for a percentage of the drinks sales if you’re in a pub, to boost the amount you raise.
