Fundraising guide

What kind of event will you run?

You can help raise money in lots of different ways. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Sponsored sporting event – run, ride, swim, walk, skydive, abseil, dance
  • Host a bake sale, coffee morning or tea party
  • Host a quiz night, BBQ, charity ball, pamper evening, karaoke night or fun day
  • Hold a raffle, a tombola, an auction or a car boot sale

Plan ahead

Advertise – use our free downloadable poster to let people know about your event, and spread the word on social media; would a local newspaper be interested in hearing about your event and why you’re raising money?

Open a fundraising page so people can donate – you can do this via JustGiving at

Get organised – Who will help? Who will come? How will your event work? Where will it be? What date is best? Will you need to get local businesses involved to help? Send out invites in plenty of time. Write a detailed checklist of things to do.

Set a fundraising target – is there a specific amount you’re hoping to raise?
