Fundraising ideas

Hospice in the Weald need to raise £7 million each year to maintain our existing services and that wouldn’t be possible without the support of people like you. Your support will help to ensure that the care we provide is always free for patients, families and carers.

Decide what you would like to do
Would you like to hold a bake sale, quiz night or coffee morning? Why not organise a Zumbathon, a football tournament or a concert? The possibilities are endless so pick something that you and your friends can enjoy!

If you’re a keen gardener, why not open your garden as part of our Open Gardens scheme?

If you’re looking for further inspiration, have a look at our Thank You page to see some of the fantastic ways in which people have supported us in the past.

Choose a venue
Find an appropriate place in your community or at home to hold your event. Don’t forget to ask if venues offer charity discounts on hire charges.

Decide how to collect your donations
You may wish to create an online giving page, or use our donation buckets and boxes.

Spread the word
Make sure you tell everyone about your event including your friends, family and colleagues. Print off our downloadable poster and put some up in your local area. For a printer friendly version that uses less ink click here.

Share your event on social media and tag your friends so they can help you spread the word.

Get others involved
Ask your friends, family, colleagues, local businesses and community groups to help with the event. Remember to tell people why this event is important to you, and make sure you and your helpers team up and share ideas so you can have plenty of fun along the way.

Keep it safe, legal and fun
It’s important to us that you stay safe when you’re fundraising for Hospice in the Weald. Be mindful of safety so that everyone can enjoy the event.

Stay in touch
We’d love to hear about your event, so if you would like some support or have any questions please contact Kimberley Peake, Relationship Fundraising Coordinator on 01892 820507 or kimberley.peake@hospiceintheweald.org.uk

After the event
If you have set up an online giving page the money you have raised will be sent to us automatically, but if you have any collection boxes or buckets pop in to see us so we can hear how it went. If you have any photos please upload them to our Thank You page.

Download our thank you poster and display it so that everyone can see how much money you've raised for Hospice in the Weald!
