Cash in the attic
Clear out those cupboards and wardrobes and donate items that we can sell through the Action Ebay pages. Many of us will have interesting and useful items we no longer need or want and we can turn these into cash. So get ready to support our virtual charity shop to boost our fundraising for Action Medical Research.
Cash in the Attic
It’s time to clear out your cupboards and wardrobes and donate items that we can sell through the Action eBay pages.
Supporting Action on the bike, running a marathon or consuming produce from the next office cake bake sale may not float your boat but you can help make a big difference by supporting our virtual Charity shop.
Your Price Bailey Charity Champion will let you know when to bring your items into the office. Items will be checked and prepared for sale by Action Medical Research .
Most things will sell so start gathering together all your pre-loved items and help us to fill the shelves in our virtual shop.
We will check all items before posting them on eBay and we will seek expert advice on any special items that may need to carry a reserve price.
Set yourself a Personal Best (PB) and ask friends, family and colleagues to support your journey to a better you!
Whatever your PB, it’s up to you. Maybe some of the examples below will help you create your own, unique PB for 2019 and beyond!
Set up your page on Charity Checkout for your PB challenge today, and get everyone behind you to help you succeed in your Personal Best for Action, by doing something that improves YOU!
My Personal Best
Set yourself a personal best (PB) and ask folk to support you on your journey. Your PB can be whatever you want it to be, for some it will be a physical challenge for others it will be about making a life-change. It could be something as basic as declaring that you will set a PB to keep a tidy desk or answer colleagues emails sooner!
- Never spoken in public? Strive to deliver a ten minute presentation and experience the adrenaline of public speaking
- Challenge yourself to ride one of Action’s Ride 100’s, and then set your sights on the London to Paris Cycle in 2019
- A self-confessed fizzy drinker? Ditch the fizz for Action, and notice a healthier you!
Setting your PB is a fun way to get involved with raising funds for Action medical Research and it doesn't matter whether you set yourself an ambitious challenge and fundraising target or a simple goal that others will recognise with the odd donation. It all counts and what really matters is that you give it a go.
Once you have decided to set your PB then let your charity champion know so it can be announced to all!
Here are a few ideas:
I will try and get close to my, school sports day, 100 metre time
I will cycle to work at least twice a week
I will conquer my fear of public speaking and deliver a 10 minute speech
I will learn to draw by the end of the year
I am stuck in a fashion time warp but the new me will appear in December
I will keep a tidy desk. Put a coin in the tin if you think I am making progress!
I will grow the finest beard known to humanity by Christmas
