2. Make a game plan. Raise your Game is fun for anyone anywhere! There are a few ways you can Raise your Game during the pandemic:

  • Host an event in person, in line with the current government guidelines at the time of your event
  • Host a virtual event via Zoom, Skype or whatever video conferencing platform you feel comfortable using
  • Organise a board games marathon at home and ask for sponsorship from family and friends

Visit our FAQs pages below for inspiration on holding these different types of events, and our top tips for games and fundraising.

3. Make a date and pick your players. Raise your Game is taking place in October, but you can hold your event on any day in any month that suits you.

There will be materials in your fundraising pack to help you spread the word about your event, and there are extra materials for you to download here.

4. Raise your Game. The day is all about spending time together, playing some games and of course, raising vital funds for dementia specialist Admiral Nurses.
