What does choosing Beat as your Charity of The Year involve?

By choosing Beat as your Charity of the Year you are pledging to support Beat by raising awareness of eating disorders within your community. Organise at least two events across the year and fundraise for Beat. Our Fundraising team will be there every step of the way to support you. We have lots of fundraising ideas to help you get started with your event planning as well as fundraising resources such as flags, posters, information leaflets and more!

Whether you’re a workplace, community group or school we’d love to welcome you on board #TeamBeat 💜
