The current health crisis has meant that we have all had to adapt to new ways of doing things. Though we need to be apart physically, there’s never been a more important time to come together!

With many events cancelled or postponed and any plans for team bake sales or fundraising activities put on hold, we’re sharing our top virtual fundraising ideas to inspire you to use this time to set yourself a challenge, bring your family and friends together with smiles and laughter and raise funds to help vulnerable people in communities that need it the most.


 

Host a Virtual Quiz Night

We’re all becoming increasingly familiar with video calling apps to keep in touch with colleagues, friends and family including Microsoft Teams, Facetime, Zoom and Houseparty. Use your favourite app to host your own Quiz Night!

  1. Create your quiz – there are loads of questions you can find online!
  2. Set up a JustGiving page
  3. Share details of date, time and how to join with friends and ask them to donate to the JustGiving page to enter
  4. Host your quiz

 

Virtual Happy Hour!

Who needs a pub to enjoy a drink with family, friends or colleagues? Simply arrange a date and a time to ‘get together’ over video call.

  1. Set up a JustGiving page
  2. Share details of date, time and how to join with friends and ask them to donate what they would usually spend on a drink!

 

A Virtual Cuppa

Sometimes all you need is a good cuppa and a catch up with your loved ones. Get everyone together for tea or coffee, cake and a natter!

  1. Set up a JustGiving page
  2. Share details of date, time and how to join with friends and ask them to donate what they would usually spend on a hot drink and a slice of cake!

 

Host a Virtual Class

Do you have a talent to share? Whether it’s yoga, cooking, baking or crafting, you could host your own virtual class. A great way to do this is through Facebook or Instagram Live.

  1. Set up a JustGiving page
  2. Share details of date, time and how to join with friends and family and ask them to donate to get involved.

 

Set yourself a running challenge!

Get out on a daily run and track your distance. You could challenge yourself to a 5k or a 10k, or step it up a notch with a half or full marathon! You don’t have to complete it all in one go though, take it at your own pace over days or weeks and reach your end goal!

  1. Set up a JustGiving page
  2. Ask family and friends to sponsor you to reach your fundraising target
  3. Update your page with your progress and distance tracked to keep your supporters involved in your journey to reach your goal!
