Fundraising tips

Fun and easy ways to help you raise money for your HACK walk

The funds you raise will help vulnerable children across the UK. Find out more about the NSPCC HACK walks.

Getting started

Create your own online sponsorship page

The most simple, secure and effective way to collect donations is to set up an online sponsorship page, using Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving.

You can personalise it with photos and messages, and your friends, family and contacts all over the world can add their encouragement as well. Make sure your first sponsor is generous (others will follow). 

Gift Aid it

Encourage your friends and family to tick the Gift Aid box on their donation if they are a UK tax payer. Changes in taxation law mean that for any donation over £1, we can now reclaim the tax at no cost to you!

This means for each £1 donated the NSPCC can reclaim 20p from HM Revenue and Customs; your friends just need to tick the Gift Aid box.

Fundraising ideas

Matched giving

Find out if your company offers matched giving - some will donate £1 for every £1 you raise.

Hold a cake sale

Join together with friends or colleagues to bake some cakes and sell to friends and family to reach your fundraising target.

Hold a book sale

Ask your friends and family to donate their unwanted books and hold a book sale in the office or in your local community.

Collection tins

Contact your local fundraising team to ask for some collecting tins that you can display at work or in your local shops.  Find your local NSPCC office.
