Tryanuary fundraising ideas for trade charity The Benevolent
Each year, Tryanuary works with a chosen charity to raise awareness of their work, and raise a few pounds to help it continue. This year we’ve partnered up with trade charity The Benevolent to help gain support to people within the UK drinks industry and their families.
The Benevolent is the trade charity that provides help and support to current and former employees of the UK drinks industry and their families. They offer the practical, financial and emotional support needed to get people back on their feet when facing life’s challenges such as serious illness, mental health difficulties, issues with debt or a family crisis.
Tryanuary hope to be able to give a little back to this charity that has given so much to the industry.
How can you help?
We’ve come up with some fundraising ideas to get you started. Whether you decided to use these, or have a few of your own, make sure you let us know about your plans so we spread the word for you!
Organise a Beer Tasting / Bottle Swap
Try new beers and support The Benevolent by organising a beer tasting or bottle swap during January. All you need to do is pledge to donate a portion of the entry price, or rattle a tin on the night. We’ll provide Tryanuary tasting notes for you to use on the night! (Available to download soon.)
A Round - of Beery Quiz Questions
Do you have favourite local pub quiz? Why not ask your quiz-master to include a round in January on everyone’s favourite drink, beer, and raise some funds for The Benevolent at the same time!
We’ve worked with some of the industry’s cleverest beer folk such as Des de Moor, Pete Brown and Boak & Bailey to come up with some questions for you to use in exchange for a donation, whether it’s a percentage of the night’s takings or the contents of a collection tin passed around on the evening. To make sure nobody gets a sneaky peek beforehand the quiz is only available on request from organisers by contacting our charity co-ordinator Dani Neal.
You can also of course donate directly to The Benevolent during January using this handy link!
