Fundraise for Brake
Help Brake support people affected by road crashes and campaign for safe and healthy mobility for everyone, by fundraising during Road Safety Week.
Fundraising is a great way to promote road safety within your community. You could do something as simple as organising a bake sale or go to town by organising a team-building day with a charitable focus.

Bake for Brake
Grab your apron and hold a Bake for Brake cake sale this November. Whip up a batch of simple cupcakes, or challenge yourself to try something new. Everyone loves a slice of cake, especially if their extra calorie intake is for a good cause.
You can have your own one-off bake sale, or sell tasty treats during a big event, such as a school fair or office coffee morning. Get your friends, school mates or colleagues involved and host your very own bake-off challenge – the more cakes, the more money raised!
Not sure what to make? Here are two easy, road safety-themed recipes to follow:
Speed down. Dress up.
A dress up day is a fun and simple way to fundraise at work, at school or within your local community. Help us raise awareness and vital funds by donning your brightest and stripiest outfits, or funniest hats, wigs and other accessories, and making a donation for Road Safety Week.
Choose a theme to suit you, or make up your own, and get everyone to donate just £1 to Brake
Wear your stripes
Wear your stripes for Road Safety Week. Always popular with schools, this is a great activity for every class to get involved with as part of a Beep Beep! Day or other Road Safety Week activity. Stick to tradition with the black and white stripes of a zebra crossing or go as bold as you dare in colours of your choice.
Be bright for Brake
Help us spread the message of Road Safety Week by wearing your brightest colours – a simple but effective theme for anyone to try.
Shake up your video calls
Get everyone involved and have some fun with daft hats, colourful wigs or full-on fancy dress for your next work call.
Regular physical activity is vital for healthy hearts and minds and strong bodies, as well as being great fun. This makes it an ideal way to encourage people to raise money.
You could organise a sponsored walk, run or any activity you like. There are also great opportunities to work around working from home and social distancing by creating a remote team relay with your friends or co-workers. Get everyone to contribute to a strertch of a marathon or work together to do 100 push-ups – the sky is the limit.
Make Brake your Charity of the Year
Brake is proud to do a lot with limited resources, but we need help to do more. Ask your boss or a local business to show they value people and their welfare by choosing Brake as their Charity of the Year. There is something for everyone to get involved with and together we can make roads safer for everyone. Find out more on the Brake website.
