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.

Skydiving – various dates throughout the year
Experience the rush of a skydive from at least 10,000ft at 120mph! Taking part in a skydive is a fantastic way to raise money for charity. This once in a life time experience will not only be exhilarating but adrenaline packed! Our main skydive provider has 19 sites available throughout the UK. To book your place at one of these sites we ask you to pay a registration fee of £70 and commit to raising a minimum sponsorship of £395 (£450 for skydives in Scotland and Northern Ireland). Please note the cost of your skydive will be paid for from the sponsorship you raise – more info.
