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:
Teach an online class, like yoga, home workouts or guitar lessons, or offer home schooling - it's a great way to help people learn new things.
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.”
"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."
“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."
