Organise Your Fundraising Event For #AWFis3

Event Information | Events | News

We will soon be approaching the 14th September which would have been Amys 31st birthday and will also be the Amy Winehouse Foundation’s 3rd birthday. After the success of last year’s #Amys30 events and the overwhelming support we received from fans & supporters all over the world, we thought it would be nice to mark this very special occasion again this year.

We would love you to organise a fundraising event over the weekend of 12th-14th September to mark the occasion to raise money for AWF’s valuable work. Your support helps us to continue our work to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people and help the most vulnerable to reach their full potential.

You could hold a gig, a bake sale, a sporting event or anything else you can think of that will help raise funds… and have a lot of fun at the same time!

Please post photos of your event using the hashtag #AWFis3 on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and at the end of September we will send an Amy Winehouse Foundation goody bag to the person or group with the best photo!

If you need any advice on organising your fundraising event or setting up your Just Giving page then please email us at fundraising@amywinehousefoundation.org.

Thankyou for all your continued support, we couldn’t do it without you!

STRIDE Foundation Race Day Fundraiser

Events | News

This Friday 1st August 2014, model and actor Paul Sculfor will host the inaugural launch event for his charitable initiative, STRIDE, in aid of the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

STRIDE’s goal is to raise awareness and provide direct resources to those who may not have access or support to continue with their recovery and re-integration into society. The definition of the word stride is: “walk with long, decisive steps in a specified direction.” – STRIDE aims to facilitate this journey by supporting and contributing to local charity initiatives and improving public perception surrounding addiction.

To mark the occasion Paul, an avid petrol head, has chosen a track day, where he will be joined by friends from the fashion and entertainment industry.

The launch event will be a fun day for all involved whilst fundraising for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a cause close to Paul’s heart. Throughout  his professional life, Paul noticed a high rate in addiction problems and after his personal experience with recovery; he is passionate about helping others. Recognising and understanding the difficulties in integrating and continuing to function within society during recovery has inspired Paul to set up STRIDE.
