"Beautiful route despite the wet weather - the NSPCC cheer points really spurred me on. The course was really flat so I managed to get a new PB!"

Charity fundraising ideas

We're here to help you with your fundraising. Every year people just like you raise hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds. 

Here's our handy guide to how you might get your fundraising started (and have fun at the same time!):

  • A film night - £100
    Whether it's a retro-classic or so bad it's good, get a space, some popcorn and invite people to a cosy film night. Ask them to pay what they would in a cinema.
  • Dinner party - £150
    Wine and dine your friends and family by inviting them to your home for a dinner party. Ask them to pay what they would in a restaurant.
  • Have a clear out - £150
    Having a big sort out is great during any time of the year. Sell your unwanted clothes and accessories online to rack up the cash.
