Fundraising

There are so many ways to fundraise:

EVENTS

Sponsored events are very popular – walking, cycling, running, swimming, even bungee jumps or parachute jumps for the more adventurous!

Some more popular ideas are:

  • Coffee mornings and Afternoon teas
  • Wine and cheese nights
  • Opening up your garden and charging entry
  • Quiz nights
  • Treasure hunts

If your activity is sponsored don’t forget to complete  a sponsor form which gives each sponsor’s title (ie Mr/Mrs etc), first name, surname, full home address, post code, Gift Aid declaration (ie to tick a box which confirms the charity can claim gift aid on their behalf) and finally the amount of the donation.

This allows us to claim back the Gift Aid and means we  can claim back an extra 25% back from the government on every donation without it costing you a penny more.

Above all enjoy and have fun!

Some important things to think about:

Keep yourself safe – before undertaking any activity that is physically demanding, we highly recommend that you find out the level of fitness required and, if necessary, check with your GP.

Please do not undertake door to door collections. People do not like strangers knocking on their doors asking for money and you need a licence from your local authority if you intend doing any street collections.
