Fundraising ideas

Fancy getting involved but not sure where to start? We’ve got lots of inspirational fundraising ideas – from cake sales to comedy nights, we can help get you started.

There are tons of ways you can raise money to support us.

Take part in an organised event like a marathon or a trek, create your own event, even get competitive – did someone say games night? – or include us in your special occasion 

It's a great way to give something back to a fantastic cause by doing something I enjoy. There are so many ways you can join in; running, cycling, parachute jumping…
