You can fundraise with family, friends, work colleagues, your classmates – in a socially distanced way of course!
Support Full Circle by holding your own event! Follow our 3 simple steps to make your event a great success… yay!
You can fundraise with family, friends, work colleagues, your classmates (in a socially distanced way, of course!) or take on a virtual challenge on your own if you prefer an individual challenge. We’ve got something for everyone. Whatever you do, raising money for us helps us support children, adults, and their families who are living with very serious, life-limiting conditions.
If you would like to speak to someone about fundraising, please contact us. We are happy to help you make the most of your event.
Step 1: Decide on your event
If you’ve already got an idea, that’s great! However, if you need a little extra inspiration then check out our Fundraising ideas below or to get inspired by what others have done see our News page. Whatever you decide don’t forget your event must be SAFE and LEGAL!
Step 2: Tell everyone!
Yes that’s right, tell everyone what you’re doing! Use social media, email, phone calls. Shout it from the roof tops if you want! Oh, and don’t forget to tell us what you’re doing too – not only would we love to know but we may even be able to help you promote it. Contact us here
Step 3: Raise money!
That’s the fun bit in fundraising! Work out how you are going to collect what you raise. If you are holding a sponsored event you may want to set up an online fundraising page using our Justgiving
Once you have collected up all your lovely donations simply pay it in securely online (please don’t send cash in the post). If you have any cheques then please send them with a covering note to:
Fundraising, Full Circle Fund Therapies, c/o Ruth Myles Unit, 2nd Floor St James’s Wing, St George’s University Hospital, Blackshaw Road, London, SW17 0QT.
For advice or if you simply want to talk through any of your ideas, just give us a call on 0208 725 5503. We’d love to hear from you.
1. Bike-a-Thon You can make almost any activity into a “thon” and use it as a fundraising event by getting pledges and local sponsorship
2. Clothes Swap Party Charge a small fee for entry and then a donation for any swap made!
3. Auction Ask local businesses, artists and craftspeople to donate items. A great event idea with children is to organise an art auction featuring the children’s artwork!
4. Jeans or dress down day. If your school, organisation or place of business has a strict dress code, opt for a day that everyone can donate a small amount (£5) in exchange for the option to wear jeans or casual dress. For an ongoing fundraiser, make it a regular Friday event!
5. Spaghetti Dinner Spaghetti, along with pancakes and hotdogs, are a low-cost meal that’s easy to make in large amounts and everyone loves it! Charge per portion
6. Wine Tasting You don’t have to spend a fortune, in fact, you could ask your local merchant for a donation or two! Charge an entrance fee or per glass…. or both!
7. Car Wash Get a small group together, of all ages! Advertise in advance and you’ll have a queue in no time! Offer different prices for washing, waxing, vacuuming and interior!
8. Raffle Everyone loves a raffle! Get local businesses or friends to donate raffle prizes in exchange for advertising at your event. Make the day more exciting with carnival-style games and sell snacks to boost your profits!
9. Bake sale This is a tried and tested fundraising idea that everyone loves! You could charge participants to bake cakes for a competition and the winner gets a small gift. Others could just be invited to eat cake! Charge per slice
10. Sweepstake from home A sweepstake is a quick and easy way to fundraise from home. Just set it up on your favourite social account and invite your family and friends to get involved.
11. Organise a fashion show Have a fun time with your friends or colleagues and organise a fashion show. Charge an entry fee and wear your favourite clothes, or even choose a theme.
12. Sponsored head shave Why not be brave and shave your head for Full Circle. But ask your parents first!
