Why not fundraise at #HomewithHavenHouse and have some fun and get the whole family involved with lots of fundraising activity for your local children’s hospice. There are lots of exciting ways to take part:

Use your skills

  • Give a gift - use your creative skills and make something, write songs or draw a picture to raise money
  • Run a class - teach your friends something new like a language, a new recipe, or you could hold an online yoga class for a donation
  • Hold a bake sale - if you enjoy baking, you can take orders of cakes from your neighbours for a donation.

            

Gather the community

  • Sell your stuff - declutter and have a garage sale or jump onto EBay or Facebook Marketplace and sell your unwanted items.
  • Run a raffle - ask your neighbours to donate prizes and sell tickets. Make sure you check the gambling commission website for any licenses you may need. 
  • Kind gestures - ask for donations from friends and family for completing acts of kindness, like delivering shopping to a neighbour.

Host an online event!

  • Movie night - use Netflix Party to host a movie night for you and your friends, with everyone logging on from their sofa at home and donating the cost of a cinema ticket.
  • Virtual dinner party - invite your friends to dinner over webcam. You can all donate to attend, or pay what you would have spent dining out.
