DMF has supported and reported on Damien's work since 2012.

During that time, Damien has supported a number of important causes (below).

 

With Damien's help, DMF has also fundraised for a total of six charities. Only with his generosity and support have we been able to run charity prize draws, where we have had the very special honour of giving away his own exclusive and personalised prizes.

 

Take a look below!

 

 

Damien Molony & DMF Charity fundraisers

‘Give Us a Quid’ Triathlon
The Frank Haines Memorial Trust, Hope House

In June 2013 Damien took part in a Triathlon in aid of two charities supporting children and young people – The Frank Haines Memorial Trust which supports youth work in Tower Hamlets and East London, and Hope House children hospices, who provide specialist nursing care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families.

Running a charity prize draw via his Twitter and a Virgin Money Giving fundraiser page, Damien asked everyone to #GiveUsAQuid for a chance to win special “Being Human trinkets”.

PRIZESMASTERFINAL..jpg

This week has been National Charity Week here in the UK and we have just completed our sixth charity fundraiser in collaboration with Damien:

Brassic Fantastic Charity Prize Draw in aid of SANE

This was our biggest prize draw yet, with a total of 29 exclusive prizes!

We smashed our fundraising target and raised the most we ever have for our chosen charity, SANE

£1360!

We were inspired to choose a mental health charity this year because of the themes in Brassic. We chose SANE because of their amazing services and support to anyone dealing with mental health issues as well as their carers and families.



Damien went the extra mile for us with this charity prize draw, recording a special video introducing the fundraiser, talking about the charity and modelling some of the prizes.

brassicfantasticSANEprizecapDaMo.jpg

"I’m Damien Molony, and I wanted to say hello to all the friends of the Damien Molony Forum and to fans of Brassic, everywhere. 

It’s November the 4th and we’ve already finished the first 3 episodes of Brassic series 2, we start today on episodes 4, 5 and 6, and I’ve got some exciting news about a fundraiser, a prize draw, a charity prize draw to be more specific, which is being run by domino at the Damien Molony Forum. 

And this year we’re fundraising for SANE, ‘S_A_N_E’, SANE, which is a uk charity which offers emotional support and information to people suffering with mental health problems. So I think a really appropriate one for Brassic, and we’re hoping to raise as much money as possible for this just incredibly important cause, and a really fantastic charity to support, especially around Christmas time. 

To encourage you all to donate and to raise as much money as we possibly can, we have loads of prizes, more than any fundraiser we’ve ever done before, all Brassic related. 

We’ve got [puts on F**K QUNOA cap] some Fuck Quinoa stuff, we’ve got hats, and T-shirts, a huge poster that I’ll get all the cast to sign on set today, we have DVDs, [holds up Brassic DVD cover]  signed, and other cool pictures [holds up Brassic portraits and photos], we’ve got so much stuff - there’s ones of my face over there, that’s exciting. 

As well as that, we’ve got my hoody, that I got when we wrapped on series 1, which is I guess one of a kind and really, really cool, designed by Aaron Heffernan, which is pretty cool.  

Also on top of that, for the top 3 donors I will send you a Christmas card. 

So, there’s so many prizes on offer I guess, well hopefully everyone will win a prize!

There’s nothing else to say other than to say thank you to domino at the Damien Molony Forum for first of all sourcing all the prizes, and also for organising the whole fundraiser, it’s a huge amount of work, and she has raised so much money over the past few years, hopefully we can top that even higher this year. 

I want to say thank you to Joe Gilgun, obviously without him, none of this would be possible, and he’s such an absolute legend. 

I want to say thank you to Calamity Films for giving us the big poster, [gets out the poster].

 I want to say thank you also to Dominic at Sky wo gave us the F*** Quinoa stuff, the poster is really really cool [unrolls poster, holds up to camera] and really really big, so I’ll get everyone to sign that on set. 

Yeah, hopefully we can raise loads of money to give to this really, really important charity. 

~~~~~~~

Damien also helped source many of the prizes and organised all the signings by the Brassic cast as well as sending many of the prizes to winners! All while he is so busy filming Brassic series 2.

He kindly donated his time, energy and good heart to help make this happen.

MASSIVE THANK YOU TO HIM!

thankyou2

I am hugely grateful, honoured and proud.

HUGE THANKS to everyone who supported and  donated - together we made a difference and funded a new volunteer for SANE, which will help their work supporting those affected by mental illness.

Thank you to everyone named below!

Letter from SANE

I would like to say a huge thanks to you, Damien and everyone who contributed towards reaching the goal of £1,000!

Volunteers are vital to SANEline: they undergo a rigorous selection process before being provided with a unique training programme of over 92 hours, run by experienced staff and mental health professionals.

They are practiced in active listening skills and showing compassion, empathy, understanding and warmth. They also understand different mental health conditions and the workings of the mental health system. It costs £1,000 to train and support one new volunteer per year.

The Damien Molony Forum ‘Brassic Fantastic Fundraiser’ in aid of SANE has supported 1 new volunteer so far!
Thank you all so much! We couldn’t do it without amazing people like you. ♥”

~~~~~~~

We made a difference!

THANK YOU
