Your fundraising toolkit
We understand how difficult it is for our wonderful supporters to plan or organise events for us in the community during this unprecedented time. However, you can still support us and raise vital funds from your home over the coming weeks.
Below are just a few amazing ideas to get you started!
Brave the shave
Shave your head for donations live on social media. Set a target for how much you want to raise before undertaking this challenge, and set up a JustGiving page or Facebook fundraiser so your friends, family and colleagues can sponsor you.
Knitters and crocheters
Use your needle skills to raise money for us. Why not try to break a world record and knit or crochet the longest scarf! Set up a Facebook fundraiser or tweet about it and ask your friends/family to sponsor you.
Fancy dress day
Fancy dress isn't just for Halloween. If you’re a dab hand on a sewing machine, why not make your own costumes to raise money? You could even let your friends/family cast votes on the costume you have to wear for the day for a donation.
Showcase your talents
If you’re a musician, you could share your talent and provide music lessons online or do a Facebook live stream of you performing for donations.
If someone in your household is a chatterbox who finds being quiet a challenge, ask friends and family to support you and sponsor a day's silence!
Save the Change
Work out how much you would normally spend on commuting to work - your fuel, train or bus fare - over a week or two and donate this to us.
It's a classic charity fundraising technique that provides an interesting insight into how much your friends are willing to pay to hear you shout 'ouch!'. Create a JustGiving page, set a target and get waxing!
