Fundraise for Brake!
Help Brake prevent road deaths and injuries, and support victims of road crashes, by fundraising during Road Safety Week. Fundraising helps us campaign for safe and healthy mobility for all and support people affectred by road death and serious injuryu.
Many organisations, schools and individuals run fundraising activities during the Week as a fun, lively way to promote road safety within their community. You could do something as simple as organising a bake sale or go to town by organising a team-building day with a charitable focus – ever thought of parachuting, bungee jumping or abseiling for Brake?
We are confirming our major fundraiser for 2019, but below are some great ideas to get you started!
10,000 steps for safe streets
Regular physical activity is vital for healthy hearts and minds and strong bodies. Choosing to walk short journeys instead of using the car is one of the simplest ways to be more active, and walking 10,000 steps a day has great health benefits. This Road Safety Week Step up for Safe Streets and organise a 10,000 step fundraising challenge. You could also organise a sponsored walk or invite a local gym to run a sponsored step class.
Make Brake your Charity of the Year
Brake is proud to do a lot with limited resources, but we need help to do more. Ask your boss or a local business to Step up for Safe Streets and show they value people and their welfare by choosing Brake as their Charity of the Year. There is something for everyone to get involved with and together we can make roads safer for everyone. Find out more on the Brake website.
Road Safety Superhero Day
Team up with our Pledge Squad and dress up as your favourite superhero to help spread the message of safe driving, while raising vital funds for Brake. Whether you put on a character t-shirt or a full costume, with your support, we can create a world of zero deaths or serious injuries on our roads.
You can take part at anytime. Get together with your friends, classmates or work colleagues and encourage everyone to dress up as their favourite superhero.
Our national Road Safety Superhero Day is on Friday 22 November 2019. Register for your free fundraising pack.
On Saturday 30 November join us at Brake’s second charity ball. This fantastic black tie event will be full of entertainment, fine food and fundraising to help mark the end of Road Safety Week.
It will take place at the The Ramada Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield. Tickets are just £50 each or £465 for a table of 10.

Bake for Brake
Grab your apron and hold a Bake for Brake fundraiser. Making a load of cupcakes is the simplest thing in the world, but everyone loves them, particularly if they know their extra calorie intake is all in a good cause.
You can have your own one-off sale, or sell tasty treats during a big event, such as a school fete, coffee morning or charity night. And why not hold a pay-to-enter baking competition for your friends or colleagues? Helen, right, has been Baking for Brake for the past few years. Read her story.
