Raise money for SiMBA to support the amazing work SiMBA does. Lockdown and social distancing, although vital for our safety, is having a massive impact on most charities since the usual fundraising that takes place via events and other fundraising activities cannot take place right now. We urgently need your help.

Getting and keeping people active. Being physically active is great for keeping our bodies and minds healthy and strong, particularly whilst restrictions have been in place. We want to encourage people to find an activity that makes them feel good whatever this is and use this as a platform for raising funds for you.

The Big Blue Thank You is a worldwide movement which anyone can join for free from Sunday 5th July, with the aim of saying thank you to our key workers, donating to supporting organisations and getting people active.


How can I get involved in the Big Blue Thank You?

The concept is simple. We'd like to encourage everyone to complete an activity of their choice, to make a donation to SiMBA, and to share this on their social media channels using the hashtag #bigbluethankyou to spread the word and get as many of their friends & family involved as possible.

People of all ages can take part and say a Big Blue Thank You. The options are endless for which activity you'd like to take part in - from walking, running, cycling, to yoga and even simply cleaning the house. Whatever you’d like to do to say Thank You.

When you join the Big Blue Thank You you will have access to your own personal portal that makes fundraising simple and allows you to create and track your fundraising activities. You will also have access to exciting features such as award badges, the ability to produce your own personalised event number and easy sharing of your achievements across all social media platforms.
