Sponsored events

Do a sponsored event for Nacoa and help us continue to provide a lifeline for children affected by parental alcohol problems.

This important work is funded entirely by voluntary donations. We simply would not be here for the children who need us if it were not for our supporters and volunteers. Together we can make a difference.

We are always looking for people to take part in sponsored events from skydiving to marathon running, baking cakes to a sponsored silence. This can be done as individuals or in groups across the UK. We are always astounded by the efforts people go to when fundraising for us.

People collect sponsorship for all sorts of challenges: from a sponsored walk, run, cycle, swim or horse ride to shaving your head, having a bath in baked beans, losing weight or giving up something you love such as alcohol, chocolate or TV. Perhaps you even have a hairy chest that could use a wax? The only limit is your imagination!

Current and past fundraising events

To get inspired, look at current and past fundraising activities that other supporters have been up to in News & events.

Organised challenge events

Are you looking for your next challenge or would like to face your fears? There are lots of organised events and activities for you to take part in from doing a trek to climbing a mountain, dog sledding, doing a bungee jump or even skydiving. Taking part in a fundraising event can be an enjoyable and even exhilarating way to raise much needed funds for Nacoa. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or prefer a cycle challenge or running event, you can find details and ideas on Skyline and Charity Challenge
