Your support is why we are able to do what we do and make a difference to the patients, visitors and staff at our hospitals. Below are just some of the ways you can get involved, from fundraising to volunteering or becoming a ‘Friend’ of the campaign.
A true classic. Or you could really go for it, sell other homemade delights alongside your delicious baked goods like milkshakes, smoothies or classic desserts (trifle, cake & custard etc.).
Organise a paintballing or go-karting event, you could make it a competition between individuals, or something for teams? Add a little on top of the cost price to donate to your chosen cause. Or perhaps you can ask for a reduced charity rate when organising the event?
Walk / cycle to work
Instead of driving to work or using public transport, use this fundraising idea to get into shape and donate the money you will save from buying tickets and filling up on petrol. This idea will allow you to put your money towards a better cause, stay fit and is also good for the environment!
‘Give it up’ challenge
Can you get through a week, or a month, without tea or coffee? Maybe you can’t live without having a takeaway? Give it up!
Raise money by asking your family & friends to sponsor you giving up something you love for a set period of time as your personal challenge or to sponsor you a set amount per day and see how many days you last without it.
Video gaming tournament
For those who love their video games, this ensures you have LOTS of fun whilst raising money for your chosen cause. You can charge an entrance fee to anyone that wishes to take part and arrange a prize for the winner.
Run a mufti / dress-down day at school for a small donation and encourage students to get support from their families to support the helipad appeal.
Such a simple way to fundraise, auction various items on social media. It could be items you already have at home and no longer want/need or you could ask a local business to donate items for your auction.
Probably the most fun thing you could do in the summer and all you need is water, a bucket, a sponge and some car shampoo. You could do this at your school or workplace, or you could even ask a local business to let you use their grounds/car park.
If you already play on a particular day and time, why not ask all the players to make a donation on the day too. Or if you’re a real football enthusiast, organise a charity football tournament. This is a great way to raise lots of funds for your chosen cause.
