Become a Fundraiser
We have to raise over £300,000 per year to fund our
services and are very grateful for the generosity of local people,
businesses, groups and charitable funders whose support enables us to
provide our essential services. We value every donation, no matter how
large or small.
What makes a good fundraising opportunity?
A dinner party, coffee morning, tennis tournament or a dryathlon - these are all fundraisers that have helped us in the past, but the possibilities are endless and you might have some other ideas up your sleeve.
Some things to consider:
- Is it going to be a sponsored activity or are you hosting an event?
- What do you enjoy?
- Where do your talents lie?
- Can anyone help you?
Do think about how much time and effort you are able to spend on planning and organising the event.
5 popular fundraising events
- Dress Down Day
A great and easy way to raise funds for the Trust at your workplace.
- Bake Sale
Encourage your colleagues to bring in home-baked (or shop-bought) goodies and sell them for a donation to the charity.
- Quiz Night
Quiz nights are always popular. Why not organise your own and raise funds for The Sara Lee Trust.
- Sponsored Anything
Swim, walk, run, silence or pie eating! Most things can be sponsored so the choice is yours.
- Party Time
Perhaps a themed dinner party, a murder mystery evening or a barbeque – if it gets people together, it can be a fundraiser.
