From bake sales and film nights to fun runs and sponsored silences, we’re sure you can come up with lots of creative ways to raise money for Women’s Aid. Here are a few ideas from us to get you started:
Climb every mountain
You could climb the 8,848m of Everest, using the stairs or a climbing wall. Divide the challenge by 10 people with each person climbing the equivalent of 884.8m. Ask people to sponsor your efforts and watch your total mount up – just like those metres.
Charity Football Match
Bring a competitive element into your fundraising by organising a charity football match or 5-a-side tournament. Each team pays to enter, with extra forfeits for anyone who’s given a red or yellow card. Spectators can join in the fun by holding a sweepstake to predict the winning team.
Rags to riches
Sell your unwanted clothes or items on e-Bay, or at a car boot sale, and use the money earned to boost your fundraising target. You can also sell your old books on Amazon too. You will be surprised at the sorts of things that people are willing to buy!
3 Peaks challenge
Why climb one mountain when you can climb three?! You’ll take on Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon on this epic challenge! Sign up as a team or on your own whilst raising vital funds for Women escaping abuse. Find out more information in this brochure, to book your place click here.
With a group of friends or colleagues, take it in turn to host a dinner party, with guests scoring the parties to crown the dinner party champion! Each guest makes a donation to Women’s Aid equal to the amount they would pay for a meal out.
Go purple for the day
Add a purple theme to your fundraising by organising a dress-down day at work/college with everyone donating £1-2 to wear purple. Purple is the internationally recognised colour to raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse. You could even get sponsored to dye your hair purple!
