Fundraising ideas

GIF with Ready Steady Go flashingWe're here to help you with your fundraising. Every year people just like you raise hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds. Here's our handy guide to how you might reach your target (and have fun at the same time!)

  • A film night - £100
    Whether it's a retro classic or so bad it's good, get a space, some popcorn and invite people to a cosy film night. Ask them to pay what they would in a cinema.
  • Sweepstake - £100
    Who'll win the grand national? How many sweets are in the jar? Set up a sweepstake and watch the money roll in.
  • Dinner party - £150
    Wine and dine your friends and family by inviting them to your home for a dinner party. Ask them to pay what they would in a restaurant.
