Help us help others

Turning Point Scotland is keen to involve people we work with and support the work of the organisation. A great way to do this is to take part or contribute to some of the many fun fundraising activities held throughout the year.

All the money raised goes towards additional benefits for the people we support. This could mean trying new activities to help them progress in their lives, or for extra facilities for service users in the service itself like access to IT or new social areas.

Events

If you would like to help raise money or have your own fundraising event for Turning Point Scotland please contact the Communications department and we can send you our fundraising pack: communications@turningpointscotland.com

Scott Renton raised a fantastic £1400 for Turning Point Scotland when he completed the London Marathon 2014, 26 miles around London in 5 hours 18 minutes and 56 seconds.

Chris Archibald raised over £1000 for Make It Happen after cycling all over Scotland around our services, over 600 miles in total in a week.

Among the great fundraising activities we have arranged in the past are:

18th annual Turning Point Scotland charity golf day, Newburgh-on-Ythan, Aberdeenshire.

Fourteen teams took part in a Stableford competition. The players and teams are made up from members of the offshore supply community who not only took part but supplied raffle prizes and refreshments. Over £6000 was raised at the event and the golf day has raised close to £200 000 in the decades it has been running.

Abseil

Groups of courageous volunteers from Turning Point Scotland raise money among family friends and colleagues by abseiling down the 150-foot-high cantilever Titan Crane in Clydebank. Turning Point Scotland has organised three of these events, bringing in a few thousand pounds and as well as raising money, the events bring staff and stakeholders together.

Bake It Happen

Bake It Happen was held across Turning Point Scotland services and head office to raise hundreds of pounds. It was a special baking and cooking style event where staff could show off their skills in the kitchen and impress their colleagues with a variety of tasty treats including scones, cakes, biscuits and savoury dishes.
