Organise a fundraising event in your community
Holding an event is a great way to support our work while enjoying yourself with friends, neighbours and colleagues! Some of the events that have taken place so far include pub quizzes, gigs, clothes swaps and Scouts sleepovers. We even have a Firewalk coming up – more info here!
Whether it’s a one off or regular event, big or small, it all makes a difference. Events are also a great way for more people to find out about our work. If you think you could hold an event we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch via the contact form.
Hold an online birthday fundraiser
In 2021 our supporters raised £4,805 through Facebook birthday fundraisers. In 2022 we are well on the way to beating this total. If you have a birthday coming up why not ask for donations to support refugees in place of gifts that you may not need or want! You can set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook, or use Just Giving or Go Fund Me.
Complete a sponsored run or challenge
Whether it’s an organised event like a marathon or 5k, or something you can do yourself, your friends, family and colleagues will no doubt chuck in a few quid to see you rise to the challenge. Our supporters have run marathons, abseiled, and even completed a 24 hour danceathon, in aid of our work!
Setting up a fundraiser on Facebook is very simple and they charge no fees, meaning that every bit of it goes to our work! Click here to start raising funds.
