Thank you for your consideration and support.

There isn't a 'Fun' in Fundraising for nothing, whilst we are very grateful for any ways in which you can raise funds for the charity ideally it should be fun and something you enjoy doing and are committed to. Whether you are doing something quick and relatively easy or something that takes a little longer and may be more difficult to plan and execute, have FUN!. There are countless things you can choose to do, just google 'fundraising ideas' - it's endless, or perhaps you have your own ideas! Here are just a few from us to help get your creative juices flowing!

There are many fun ways to raise money for charity, whether alone, with a group of friends, in the workplace or by taking part in an event, every penny can make a difference! Here's some ideas and tools to help you, help us.

Quick Hit - some ideas that are relatively easy to set up and organise...
Raffle (maybe ask local organisations if they would be willing to contribute prize donations), Swear box/tin (can soon mount up the funds), Dress-up/down day (maybe with a sun theme, why not get people to dig out their most hideous Hawaiian shorts and wear them for the day in aid of a very good cause!), Cake baking and sales or a charity car wash event - the options are quite literally, limitless!

Sporting Support - get sponsors to spur you on...
Run in a race, there are lots of running races you can enter to raise sponsorship funds for the charity, from Marathon, Half-Marathon to 10K races and shorter walks. The Runners World website has lists of races near and far, and even has training plans to help you on your way -
check it out here!

Similarly you could be tempted by a triathlon, coast to coast walk, rowing across the channel (if you are feeling very adventurous), or maybe an organised challenge, a number of companies do arrange such events like Global Adventure Challenges

Doing something challenging either by yourself or with a group of friends can be great fun, be inventive, be brave and be amazed at how much you can raise if you set your mind to it!
