Need some fundraising inspiration?

Fancy dress

Why not complete your challenge in fancy dress? Let friends choose your look in exchange for a donation!

Office challenge

Why not challenge your office to take part and see which team can raise the most money or walk the furthest.

Gift Aid

To maximise your fundraising efforts, don’t forget to ask your supporters and colleagues to use Gift Aid on their donations if they are eligible. Gift Aid is a wonderful scheme. It gives charities like us the opportunity to claim back the UK tax that supporters have already paid on their donations. So every single £1 becomes £1.25 at no additional cost to the donor.

Match funding

Many companies throughout the UK offer employees the chance to boost their fundraising efforts by ‘matching’ the money you raise. Some companies like to offer a maximum amount, and others will agree to match the total that you raise. To find out whether your company offers match funding, you’ll need to speak directly with your line manager or HR department.
