Need a little inspiration?

In 2021, Victoria Dental Care staff wore yellow and decorated the surgery with yellow balloons while Fat Sam's Bar and Grill created a special yellow cocktail for a fundraising day, with all proceeds going to Shine!

Inspired? Here are some more fundraising ideas to make your Go Yellow for Shine day more fun:

  • Working from home? All wearing yellow is a good way for your colleagues to feel connected, while apart.
  • To collect donations online, set up a JustGiving page. It is easy to share with your colleagues by email and all donations are paid directly to Shine.
  • Why not add some fun to the day by decorating the office yellow, you could ask colleagues to bake something yellow to sell, or hold a virtual or in-person team building lunch where you can only eat yellow foods!
  • Share your photo on social media tagging @ShineUKCharity and using #GoYellowForShine. You could also nominate your friends and family to do the same!
  • Ask if your company's social media accounts can be turned yellow for the day?

Willow's Story - Why Shine needs your support 

‘Shine was amazing and helped provide much-needed positivity regarding spina bifida and a life a child/adult can have.’  

After her unborn baby was diagnosed with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus at her 20 -week scan, Emmy found Shine through a Google search and has been in contact with the charity since.  
‘They were able to break down MRI scans and doctors' reports which painted a very bleak picture and without such  positivity and better statistics, Willow may not be here today.’ 

Willow is now 5 and loves her chow chows, monster and mayhem. She loves going to the park with her Mummy and Daddy. 

Many of Shine’s services are entirely funded by the generosity of the general public. Any support you can give us this ‘Go Yellow for Shine’ day would be greatly appreciated. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly fundraising team by emailing fundraising@shinecharity.org.uk.
