As part of our Imagine If… Campaign, we are inviting you to take part in The Great Big Night In on Friday 26th February. This fun event is the ideal way to bring families and friends (virtually) together during these strange times, to learn a new skill, share some laughs and reconnect whilst raising funds and awareness for Leeds Mencap.

It’s easy to take part, all you need to do is choose any activity from below (you can do more than one if you like!) We will send you details of what you need ahead of the event depending on your chosen activity, then get together with your friends or family and have some fun.

It doesn’t cost anything to participate in this event, but if you are able to make a donation towards our Imagine If campaign, it would be greatly appreciated.

We have now added all the step-by-step videos to our YouTube channel for the activities below and a PDF with instructions/recipe. If you need any help with these or an additional format, contact caitlin.hazell@leedsmencap.org.uk

Once you’ve chosen and done your activity, we’d love it if you could make a donation to Leeds Mencap and encourage others to do the same, but the emphasis in on having fun. The more the merrier and the more funds you raise, the bigger the difference you’ll make to children with learning disabilities during these difficult and uncertain times. Also, please share what you are doing and this event on social media!

You can donate as much or as little as you feel able. We have a target to raise £20,000 to give young children with learning disabilities the greatest gift of all. Click here to read more about the campaign.

All participants will be entered into a prize draw. There is a £100 voucher for Ox Club available and a box of 6 donuts from Leeds-based Glazed & Confused  as a prize for children.

Contact Caitlin for your fundraising pack with more details on the activities or to receive instructions for your chose event(s) on caitlin.hazell@leedsmencap.org.uk or click here to download the pack.
