Why not hold a fundraising event for the SSJ? Holding your own event can be a rewarding challenge, it is also a lot of fun, and the fundraising team will be on hand to offer you advice and support every step of the way.
From a young age, children show an interest in helping those less fortunate than themselves. We support schools with their fundraising and love to participate in their Harvest assemblies or go and present certificates to reward children’s efforts. Two of our interactions with schools can be found over on our blog here and here. Both of them made a profound difference to our clients.
From 4-16 the activities that children and young people could engage themselves in will vary greatly, we love to hear all of your ideas and do all we can to support your events.
Primary schools are great venues for cake sales, collections of donated foodstuffs and toiletries at key times like harvest and Christmas, and sponsored events like sleepovers (in the school hall) and walks.
A popular activity for schools is a ‘Sleep Out’ event. You can talk to the fundraising team for everything you need to put on a school hall sleepover.
Secondary schools can offer their pupils more autonomy, how about car washing days, putting on a play or pantomime with a raffle draw during the interval, IT based challenges like ‘gaming’ relays, sponsored sporting challenges; the fundraising world is your oyster.
Community groups from Beaver Scouts to Youth Clubs, Girl Guides to Craft Groups, Yoga Classes to Church Clubs & music groups have all supported us over the years.
Stitch along? A craft sale? An art exhibition with auction? A cycle challenge? Join in with our annual Sleep Out event or hold your own? How about a golf day for us or a charity football tournament or concert?
You really are limited only by your imagination with these great ways to raise funds for our work whilst having fun.
Whatever you decide to do; let us know and we will be happy to help with promotion for your event!
