All of OTR’s services are free for young people. To help us to continue providing our services, donations and fundraising events supporting OTR are very much appreciated and encouraged!
If you would like to fundraise for OTR, we’d love to hear from you. Perhaps you’d like to host a community cake sale or pub quiz – or maybe you’re looking at a daredevil event such as an abseil or run/endurance test.
Whatever the challenge, OTR is here to support you along the way! Get in touch with us if you’d like to organise a fundraiser, and we’ll provide you with the tools and information you need.
Please note that our preferred fundraising platform is BT Donate – we receive a much bigger percentage of the funds through this site!
Recent fundraising highlights…
Spin’s sponsored shave!
Spin shaved off her dreadlocks (which she’d had for over a decade!) to raise money for OTR. The dreads were more than just a hairstyle for Spin – they were a huge part of her identity. We hosted the sponsored headshave at OTR HQ and Spin’s friends took it in turns to snip off the dreads one at a time. Spin raised an amazing £1,600 from the event – an amazing total!
A team of OTR staff, volunteers and supporters got together and braved the Rough Runner – a 5K obstacle course full of mud, water, inflatables and hurdles! The Rough Runner was a fantastic day out and our team’s spirit and determination got us through. This event raised a whopping £3,400 and we’re making plans to give it another shot in 2018 – get in touch if you’d like to be involved.
