Help us reach our fundraising goal – Top 5 ideas for home based fundraising.

7 Jan

There are so many ways that you can help Sunny Harbour in their fundraising to create a new purpose built cat rescue centre.  We have jotted down just 5 of the ways you could help below to get you started.  Have a think and let us know what you come up with. We are always happy to hear from you and help where we can.

1 The most common activity is of course a sponsored event. You could run, cycle, abseil, swim or get the kids involved with anything from a sponsored silence to a bike ride.

2. Bake sale. Organise to meet with friends for an informal coffee & cake afternoon and donate the proceeds.  Alternatively regularly take baking to work to sell to raise funds. If you feel very organised consider running a one off or regular coffee morning.

3. Have a clear out. Sunny Harbour can utilise a wide variety of items to generate funds. This includes good quality clothes, unwanted gifts, broken or whole jewellery, unwanted paper foreign currency, mobile phones.   If you feel up to it why not ask friends and family to do the same.

4. Organise a collection at work asking people to bring in their unwanted broken jewellery, beads, currency, mobile phones, CDs, DVDs so that we can recycle them for funds.

5 Nominate Sunny Harbour for local charity draws and grants. For example Asda community nominations, Pets at Home and other stores that support local organisations.  Simply spreading the word helps so tell people you meet about us and our work.

No matter how large or small the donation it all adds up and creates more £s to help us reach our end goal.

We can only achieve this goal with your help and support and even if that means just £1 a week from you, your friends, or family it will all add up over the year and every single special penny counts.
