More fundraising ideas

Hold a fundraiser

Organising an event to celebrate your Make It Count challenge and collect donations from friends and family who attend. It could be a quiz, a film night or a murder mystery! But please make sure you stay safe.

Follow government guidance for meeting people.

Matched giving

Many organisations have a Matched giving scheme. This can double what you raise in no time at all. Ask your employer if they run this scheme and give your sponsorship a boost.

Fancy dress

Wear something silly for your Make It Count challenge and really grab people’s attention. Making people laugh might mean they’re more willing to sponsor you.

Every penny counts

Donations to your fundraising page will be updated automatically, but please remember to log any other donations, for example fundraising events.

For help paying in offline donations, or if you need more support with your fundraising please contact the events team.
