Leyla's London Marathon

We've had a lot of fantastic fundraisers going to amazing lengths to help OCD Action this year. It's been a while since our last update back in March, so we'd like to let you know about some of the incredible things our fundraisers have been up to since then!

Firstly, we have Leyla Ari, one of OCD Action's brilliant Helpline Volunteers. Leyla has been a part of the charity for two years, and has helped a huge number of people through her work on the Helpline.

2019: a new year of fantastic Fundraising!

What an incredible start to 2019 when it comes to fundraising!

Our fundraisers are an important part of OCD Action. Without the donations they raise through their fabulous events, OCD Action would not be able to carry out all the work we do. It can also be very beneficial for the fundraisers themselves, who often live with OCD, and find training for a run or preparing an event can be a big help for their physical and mental health.

Here are some of the great things people have been up to in the first few months of 2019 to help raise money for OCD Action:

 

Mind over Monte Carlo - an epic journey to help people with OCD

On Wednesday 30th January, two former car designers will be setting out on an epic journey from Glasgow to Monaco (in cold, snowy January weather) in a classic open-top 1949 MG TC car… all to raise awareness of OCD and funds for OCD Action!

Reverend Adam Gompertz, a car designer-turned-pioneer-minister, and Craig Callum, director of the National Transport Design Centre, are determined to help people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder through their passion for cars.

Exciting new volunteering opportunity - Fundraising Volunteer

"It's been an amazing journey for me this year and I want to give my thanks to OCD Action for all their support, yourself included! You have been incredibly helpful, easy to get in contact with, and you were always up to date on what I was doing."

Community Fundraising is such an integral part of OCD Action! Each year, we are overwhelmed by the amount of incredible volunteers who give up their time to raise vital funds which help us carry out our work.

Kelly's Fundraising Heroes

We often have amazing fundraisers going to great lengths to help people with OCD – but it’s not often that they have equally amazing employers who match what they raise.

Kelly’s Storage, the employers of Anita Carter, are doing just that!

A storage company for the London and Surrey regions, Kelly’s Storage believes strongly in helping small charities.

Great North Run 2018: Meet our fundraising heroes!

This Sunday (9th September) is the Great North Run: the largest half marathon in the world, taking place in beautiful Newcastle. It’s a great time for the whole city to celebrate and enjoy the exciting run. But more importantly, it is also a great time for people to raise funds for the charities that are close to their hearts and fight for countless people who are desperate for help.

Walk this Way

The blazing heat of Britain’s summertime may be starting to cool down, but that doesn’t mean the fundraising is slowing down too! Check out these two inspirational fundraisers coming up in the next couple of weeks, both of whom are ready to take on some new challenges to raise money for those who have lives affected by the devastating OCD.
