Duvet Days

Our Duvet Days campaign is the cosiest and easiest way to raise money for Duchenne UK. We all deserve a Duvet Day! So snuggle down, it’s time to #DuNothingForDuchenne

What is a Duvet Day and how do I get involved?

A Duvet Day is a fundraising event that requires nothing more than spending time under a duvet, which means anyone can join in. There are lots of ways and places to get involved! You can host a Duvet Day from:

  • Home
  • School
  • University
  • Work
  • and even a local cinema!

This is a collective endeavour to help end Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). To achieve a goal as grand as ours, we need your support to raise funds that will help this generation of people living with DMD. That’s why we’re asking everyone to host their own Duvet Day.

Here are four steps to a great Duvet Day!

Step 1. Get your fundraising pack to help you set up and promote your Duvet Day

We’ve made organising your Duvet Day as simple as possible. From easy activities to snacks, we’ve thought of everything – so you don’t have to. Whether it’s a Duvet Day at Home, School, University, or Work, we have:

  • Duvet Days Fundraising Guide – your guide to planning and hosting your Duvet Day
  • Event Poster – stick it in your window to tell everyone you’re hosting a Duvet Day in aid of Duchenne UK
  • Sign-up Form – print off to keep track of any extra donations that boost your total
  • Duvet Days bunting – essential decorations for your exciting event
  • Do Not Disturb Sign – stay under the covers on your Duvet Day
  • Window Sticker – display it proudly to let people know who you’re raising vital funds for

Collection boxes and popcorn holders are also available from your Family and Friends contact, or by emailing [email protected].

Step 2. Once it's organised, set up a JustGiving page that people can donate to

You can create a page at JustGiving.com.

Then link it to the Duvet Days JustGiving page!

Step 3. Then before, during, and after, share your Duvet Day on social!

Follow Duchenne UK on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok, @DuchenneUK. We’d love to see what you’re getting up to on your Duvet Day! You might like to post a duvet selfie or a quick film to show you’re Duvet Day ready and nominate your friends to do the same!

Remember to tag us using @DuchenneUK and include our hashtag #DuNothingForDuchenne

Step 4. Finally, and importantly, enjoy your Duvet Day!

Want to read a book on your Duvet Day, but don’t know what to read?
