Local Fundraising and how you can help

Local fundraising has been crucial to the project’s success: huge thanks to all the local groups who have done (and are still doing) benefits for us – it really makes a difference.

We are constantly fundraising- look out for our stalls at the Buttercross in the Market Place; our Summer plant sales; our book sales (checkout the bookshelf in the Foyer for good second hand reads) and all the imaginative events our fundraising committee plans.

Helping the Courthouse Project

If you are interested in helping with the Fundraising and Local Publicity please contact us.

Give As You Live – donate while you shop online…

This is a really easy way to support the Courthouse – you download a tiny program which you won’t even notice, and this records when you shop in certain stores online. Each time you shop online in these stores (including loads, from Amazon to Tesco and more in between) the Courthouse will receive a small donation. Over each month and year, this adds up, and as it’s so easy, we hope you’ll join in and support us!

Also, if we get 25 supporters by Christmas, Give As You Live make a donation to the Courthouse of £125, so we hope you’ll help. To find out more and download the program, click here…

Join our Friends Scheme

The Friends of the Courthouse are a very special group who contribute to the Courthouse on a regular basis – every month or once a year. In exchange they get a certificate of membership, their programmes get delivered before everyone else, they get early access to tickets, receive a newsletter several times a year, and a few other things, too. To find out more and join, click hereor on the link on the left…

Everyclick – donate when you search the internet…

Everyclick is a way of donating to the Courthouse every time you search the internet. Simply use this page as your search engine and the Courthouse will receive a little bit of money each time you search. The search is powered by Yahoo, so it does work well, although we’ll understand if you only use Google! (but if that’s the case, you should definitely get Give As You Live…)

Be a Gift Aid Supporter

If you, your friends or family, or the company you work for, have been intending to make a donation to the project or contribute something to the fundraising efforts, please do it through Gift Aid. With a Gift Aid form we can reclaim tax (28p in every pound) on top of your donation.

Give us your old phones and ink cartridges

We can turn them into money. Just drop off your unwanted phones and ink cartiridges at the Courthouse and we will effect a magical transformation.

Bottles for Otley Carnival stall

Otley Courthouse will be running a fundraising tombola stall at this year’s Otley Carnival. We would be very grateful for any full bottles donations (except cleaning fluids) that you can give us. Please hand these in to the Courthouse reception (10am – 4pm Monday to Saturday) before Tuesday 16th June.
