As a small charity we are very grateful for the support we receive through our extended networks. There are multiple ways that you can get involved in our work. Please see the links below for more information or alternatively, we would love to hear from you if you have particular skills and ideas.
Events and Fundraising
Taking part in a fun or challenge event? Why not fundraise for DAM UK whilst doing it? We are happy to support you in every way we can. We can provide graphics, photographs and information about the charity. Even if your idea isn’t quite formed yet, please get in touch and we can help. Previous events include sponsored runs (dressed in a sari!), sponsored walks and fundraising dinners.
We regularly take part in the Just Walk event in June each year and are keen to keep growing the number of walkers in this event each year (you can also run). For more information, please get in touch!
Raise money whilst you shop – at no extra cost!
Sign up to giveasyoulive and raise money for DAM UK from online retailers whilst you shop. This could be anything from your weekly food shop to a birthday present or holiday. The website works by generating funds through affiliate marketing, much like other sites do, except some of the profit will go to DAM UK as your chosen charity at no extra cost to you. Sign up and choose DAM UK as your charity to start raising funds today.
We are a small organisation with one member of staff and so the input of our volunteer Council of Management is vital for achieving our charitable objectives. We have lots of interesting pieces of work and short term projects that would be ideal for individuals interested in developing their experience in the international development and charity sectors. We particularly welcome individuals with specific skillsets in marketing, fundraising and social media but we are very flexible and encourage people to get in touch if you would like to volunteer.
