Ten Quick and Simple Fundraising Ideas
Do you want to help raise money for Weldmar Hospicecare? Here are 10 easy ways you can support us during this difficult time:
1) Donate your commute
If you are working from home, why not save up your fuel or public transport costs that you would have spent travelling to and from your workplace. Save this up over the course of your home working and donate it via our online donation form.
2) Treat Donation
Maybe you treat yourself to a coffee, lunch or a drink at the pub with your colleagues after work each day. Why not consider saving this money up and helping us to continue to be here throughout this virus. We’ve made it easy to donate this money online.
3) Utilise Social Media
If you’ve got a birthday or celebration coming up and you were planning on going out for a meal, a few drinks or a night out, why not ask your friends and family instead to donate to Weldmar Hospicecare – continuing our care is the best gift they can give. It’s really easy to do with Facebook Donate and you can share the page with all your friends on social media too.
4) Join our virtual community
Why not take part in one of our brand new virtual events at a time and place that suits you. Add a challenge to your walk or run with one of our Virtual Distance Challenges. Or, if you fancy something virtual from the comfort of your own home then our Creative Practitioner is hosting some virtual craft workshops, using items that can be found around the house. Find all our virtual fundraising ideas here.
5) You could win £25,000
With many sporting events being cancelled including the Grand National, maybe you’re after a different way of having a chance of winning! Taking part in our lottery is simple and easy and you could win up to £25,000! For just £1.00 per week it’s a great way to support Weldmar Hospicecare.
6) Help us every month
Now, more than ever before, having regular monthly donations is vital. Knowing that each month we have a guaranteed donation will allow us to plan and continue our services, no matter what the circumstances. A small monthly donation can really make a big difference. However much you can give, be rest assured that it will be spent in the best possible way.
7) Create a virtual fundraising event
From quizzes to fitness classes to even music festivals, there are lots of events you can go to from the comfort of your own home! If you have a virtual event planned for Weldmar Hospicecare, then please let us know and we can add it to our events page!
8) Art Commissions
If you’re looking for some creative ideas, then art commissions may be the way forward! Creating drawings to sell on or drawing ideas from friends and family for a donation is a great way to fundraise while practicing your art skills too!
9) Amazon Smile
Fundraise while you shop! Amazon Smile is a great way to raise money with no extra cost to you! If you select us as your chosen charity, Amazon will give 0.5% of what you spend to Weldmar Hospicecare.
10) Coin hunt
Lockdown has encouraged many of us to do a spring clean, and occasionally we strike gold! Or a few surprise pennies at least. Have a coin hunt and discover where some of your change has been hiding – you could round up what you find to the nearest pound and donate online.
