Calling all supporters of Blackburn Youth Zone and Youth Zone Darwen! 

We need YOU! Blackburn and Darwen Youth Zones are calling on the community to all come together to PAINT THE TOWN ORANGE, raising essential funds and promoting awareness throughout the months of 1st September through to 9th December. 

All you have to do is come up with your own fabulously fun Orange creative idea of how to fundraise for us and let us know! You could – have an orange outfit day at work, have an orange Funday, or if you are feeling brave … you could even dye your hair orange for the occasion! 

You can do one big fundraising event – eg. fun day, a community walk, pub crawl, skydive, bingo evening. Or you can do regular fundraising activities – Bake sales, wear something ‘orange’ to work, bingo evenings. 

When a business takes part in the challenge they will get:

  •  A press release about their fundraising event / efforts for supporting BYZ
  •  A day with BYZ where we will come and speak to the team about the charity and volunteering
  • Invite to an exclusive online Networking ‘Segment’, where all the businesses involved will have an opportunity to come together.
  • Their business listed on our paint the town web page
  • Invited to a ‘thank you’ event, where we will welcome you and ‘thank you’ for taking part – as well as you being able to attend the event. 
  • Regular social media promotion

To sign up and for your FREE fundraising pack contact or call us on 01254 292000. It costs nothing to JOIN IN. So what are you waiting for? 

Lets’ brighten up Blackburn and Darwen in aid of the Youth Zones’ vital work. 

Looking forward to hearing back from you.
