Fundraising from home
We know that things have been different recently. Even fundraising has changed! But it’s still possible to get creative and support our NHS staff working on the frontline. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Barts Charity fundraiser collapses on floor after burpee challenge

Sponsored run

Getting some daily exercise is especially important at the moment, for physical and mental wellbeing, and it can be a great way to fundraise too. Choose your own distance and ask everyone you know to sponsor you. Whether you want to complete Couch to 5k or run a marathon over a month, every mile you run can make a difference. You can even link your actvity tracker in Strava to your JustGiving page.

Birthday fundraiser

Got a birthday coming up? Even if you can’t host a big party, you can up the feel-good factor by setting up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook. Ask people to make a donation instead of buying you a present or a birthday drink.

Shave your head

Barts Charity supporter Aruna shaved her head and raised a whopping £1,500! To follow in her footsteps all you need to do is choose a date, get your friends and family to sponsor you and get the camera ready!

Host a virtual quiz

A quiz is a great way to get people together and raise some money. Use Houseparty or Zoom and get your friends, family, colleagues or neighbours to have a battle of the brains. Set up a JustGiving page and ask anyone who takes part to donate £5.
