We have a charity place in this years London Marathon which will be held in October – so there is plenty of time left to train for this iconic event! If you’d like to run for us, please contact Ellie – our wonderful Fundraising Assistant – on elliec@livingpaintings.org.

Set up a challenge

Blind library member Ted ran a mile a day for 26 days to raise money for Living Paintings, while Alison cycled 26 miles. What challenge could you set yourself to support more blind and partially sighted library members like Ted?

School fair

Annabel, whose brother Monty is a library member, made and sold pom poms at her school fair to raise funds for us. What could you make?

Cake sale

Whether it’s cup cakes, flapjack or carrot cake, have fun and try out your baking skills with a cake sale. You could take your tasty treats into school, work or invite friends over.

School paper plane competition

Have a paper plane competition. Ask if you can use the school hall, and charge a small entrance fee. You can have all sorts of different classes, like furthest distance flown, fly the plane through the hoop, or most unusual design.

Get into character

Why not have a dress-up day at school or work? Ask everyone to pay £1 to dress up as their favourite character from a Touch to See book.
