Raise vital funds to help us still be here for children

Even with social distancing, there are still lots of ways you can fundraise for us. Children have been strongly affected by the pandemic and the effects are far from over. We need your help so we can still be here for children. Because no child should be left to cope alone.

From hosting a virtual Halloween quiz to selling handmade crafts or old clothes, we’ve got lots of great virtual fundraising ideas you can try while following the government’s advice on social distancing.

Fundraise with us and you'll get:


  • a fundraising pack full of ideas, tips and resources to help make your fundraising a success
  • regular emails inspiring you with ways to smash your fundraising targets
  • support from our friendly team to help with any questions along the way.

Virtual fundraising ideas

Your support means more now than ever. Help us continue to be there for the children and families who need us by fundraising from the comfort of your home.

We've got lots of virtual fundraising ideas you can try while social distancing:

  • Organise a pumpkin carving competition, set up a beastly bake sale, or host a hair-raising quiz night to raise money this Halloween.

  • Get crafty and make homemade gifts, soap or cards at home. Send to your friends and family in the post and ask for a donation.

  • Host a virtual coffee morning with friends and family – grab a cuppa, a slice of cake and some games.

  • Challenge your friends to a virtual bake-off competition. Ask people to donate to enter, then share your baked goods over video chat or social media!

  • Now's the perfect time to declutter and sell any old clothes, gifts or books online – try eBay for charity, Facebook Marketplace or Depop.

  • Host a virtual pub quiz over video chat or on social media - invite your friends and family and find out who’s the most competitive player!

  • Challenge yourself to give something up and ask friends and family to sponsor you - it could be a habit, or even a favourite food.

  • Invite your friends to a gaming marathon and place bets on the winner – it’s a great way to keep in touch and have fun at the same time.

Fundraising stories to inspire you

Rebecca's bake sale

"The NSPCC have always had a firm place in my heart. I love cooking so I thought I’d get some friends round, they can bring their kids, and we’ll bake some cakes.”

Archana's skydive

"I'm so scared of heights I can't even go on a slide with my toddler. But it was the most exhilarating experience of my life...I can't believe I did it."

Jack's disco

“I had lots of fun throwing the best party ever – it’s going to go down in village history! I don’t know the exact amount I raised, but I’m really proud."
