Every year Penumbra supporters get involved with our fundraising events to generate vital funds for our projects.

The money you raise provides direct support for adults and young people experiencing mental ill health. And by spreading the word about your efforts you’ll help us to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing in Scotland too.

However you choose to support us, we’re here to help make it as easy and as fun as possible. We’ll be there every step of the way with training tips, fundraising advice and encouraging words. It’s the least we can do!

Penumbra raises money online through Just Giving, Virgin Money Giving and everydayhero. Sign up for your own account or to sponsor a friend’s event.

Kiltwalk – Edinburgh: Sunday 16th September 2018

We don’t have charity places in this event, but you can still take part and help those experiencing mental health problems. Simply buy your place directly through the organisers (remember to select Penumbra as your chosen charity), then let us know you’ve got it by contacting fundraising@penumbra.org.uk, and set your own fundraising target. Once you’ve registered with us, we’ll send you a Penumbra t-shirt along with some helpful fundraising ideas.
