4 Ways You Can Support Basis This New Year

As we look forward to the year ahead, maybe you’ve got some new year’s resolutions or maybe you haven’t decided what your aiming for this year. In this blog post we’ve come up with 4 ways you can support Basis with your New Year Resolutions, so if you already have a resolution, or if you’re looking for inspiration, please give this one a read!


1/ Fundraise for us while you reach your fitness goals

Have you made a fitness resolution? Maybe you’re aiming to complete a couch-to-5k or running a big marathon, perhaps you’re aiming to do a certain number of steps every week or you’re aiming to get moving each day. You can set up a fundraiser for Basis Yorkshire, Basis Young People, or both, and use this to help motivate your progress. Asking friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you to reach a target provides great motivation during the cold January evenings to get up and moving.




You can set up a JustGiving page by following the simple instructions on their website:

If you’re using Strava to track your fitness goals, you can link this up to you JustGiving page so donators can see your progress, JustGiving explain how in this short post:

2/ Become a regular donor

Perhaps this year you’ve made a resolution to donate more to charity, you can set up direct debit regular payments – it could be a little each month or maybe just a few payments a year. Regular donations help us to plan for how we can support women and young people throughout the year. There are other ways to regularly donate too, such as signing up to Give As You Live or Amazon Smile which allows you to donate while you shop.

There’s more information on how to do this on our webpage you can visit by clicking here: Visit our Fundraising Page


3/ Or just donate to us as a one off!

If you aren’t able to donate regularly you can always send us a one-off donation, you can pay by cheque, via our JustGiving page or drop us a line if you want to do a bank transfer or drop off some money. And you can donate by text, by texting BASIS and the amount you want to donate to 70085.


4/ Donate in-kind during your post-Christmas clear out

Did you get too many toiletries in secret Santa’s over the Christmas period? Perhaps you have old clothes that need to go to make room for the new Christmas haul. We always welcome donations in-kind! Please give our office a ring to organize a drop-off if you do have donations. And keep an eye on our social media throughout the year as we appeal for specific donations.

Our Amazon Wishlist is always updated with what we’re currently in need of.
