‘I Pledge £70’: supporting Bamboozle’s 70seventy Challenge

As part of our epic fundraising campaign, 70seventy, we’ve come up with ‘I pledge £70!’, a fun initiative which encourages our supporters to pledge to raise £70 by the 23rd of June 2018.
There are lots of ways you can do this. To register you’d like to take part in the pledge, please email, and Natasha will get you signed up to our mailing list.

One way you can take part in ‘I pledge £70!’ is to do The Smartie Challenge:

Do you know how many £1 coins a tube of Smarties can hold? ANSWER: £38! Why not treat yourself to a tube of Smarties, share them with your friends, and then take part in the Smartie Challenge by filling your tube with £1 coins. If you fill it twice, you’ll beat your £70 goal!

If you still have some of the old round £1 coins lying around – add them to your Smarties tube! (We can still take them to the bank and the money will go straight to Bamboozle).

So far, the ‘I Pledge £70’ is doing really well. We have nearly £4,000 in pledges and it’s gathering momentum. Over the last month 21 more people have signed up to help the fundraising campaign. And 5 more people have reached their total of £70.

Here are some suggestions to help your fundraising efforts for December:

Going out for Dinner?
At this time of year it’s great to catch up with friends, eat, drink and have a good time. Instead of going out for dinner – why not host a dinner party for 7 friends and ask them to donate £10 each to Bamboozle. You’ll have a great time and reach the £70 target in one night!

Send our 70seventy E-Card this Christmas!
Why not save the money you would spend on buying and posting cards this Christmas, and send an email your friends, family and colleagues with our 70seventy-themed Christmas card? Then you can add the money you’ve saved to your £70 pledge!

We have two E-cards to choose from: click here and here!

In your email, you could add the following message:

Dear Friends,

I’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Instead of spending money on buying and posting Christmas cards this year, I’m pledging to raise £70 for Bamboozle, a magical charity that creates immersive multi-sensory theatre for children and young people with profound and complex needs.

Please find my Bamboozle Christmas E-Card attached!

Simply download your card, save it to your computer, and attached it to your email!

Donate immediately
If you have already reached your £70 total, (and we keep getting updates to say you are nearly there!), you could transfer the money directly to us through the ‘donate now’ button on our website: – where you can also ‘Gift Aid’ if you are eligible. (If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your donations by 25%, because Bamboozle can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift – at no extra cost to you!)

Alternatively you could transfer the money directly into our bank account:
Account number: 10632988
Sort Code: 20-49-11
(Please add the reference 70seventy)

Keep us updated
We love to hear how you’re getting on – and any ideas that you have to raise the £70.
Please keep us informed – either directly through email, or via twitter @BamboozleUK #70Seventy #Ipledge70
