Do your own fundraising

Take on our fundraising ideas and help us be here for children.

Raise vital funds to help us still be here for children

With lockdown restrictions slowly easing, there are lots of ways you can fundraise for us at home, virtually, or out and about. 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 quiz to selling handmade crafts or old clothes to getting active, we’ve got lots of great fundraising ideas you can try whether you're staying in or getting out the house, where restrictions allow.

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.

Teach a class

A group or online class, like yoga, home workouts or guitar lessons, or home schooling - are great ways to help people learn new things.

Get crafty

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."
