So with the news of our #THANKYOUFOR150EVELINA campaign hot off the press, I’m sure you’re all eager to get involved in helping us reach our fundraising target.
We have until the end of the Evelina’s 150th year to raise £150,000 and it’s already February! And with our fundraising page on its way, we better get started…
So, I thought I’d give you 5 fundraising ideas that you can do to raise some money – any little helps – for the Evelina London!
1.) Host a coffee morning
Bake some cakes, brew some coffee and get all of your friends over for a coffee morning for charity. If everyone makes a small donation and pays 50p or so for your freshly baked goods, you’ll have raised some funds in no time – whilst spending time with your loved ones. Make sure to keep a donation box on the table so people can give throughout the day!
2.) Do a sponsored run/walk
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Do a run or a walk and get your friends and family to sponsor you. This may be a marathon, a half marathon, a quarter marathon or less! What ever you feel comfortable doing – it doesn’t matter!
3.) Organise a sponsored dog walk
Okay, so the likelihood is you have a dog. Even if you don’t, I’m sure you know of many people who do. So, plan a dog walk route, invite all of your paw pals and ask everyone who comes along for the walk to make a donation to the Evelina! Simple!
4.) Have a car boot sale
I’m am sure you have many bits and bobs lying around your home that you simply don’t need or use anymore. Gather all of these things together and take them down to a car boot sale. Save all the proceeds from what you sell to donate to the Evelina. Make sure that people know you’ll be donating your profits to a good cause as they’ll be more likely to buy!
5.) Host a charity day at work
This one may take a little bit more planning but if you’re able to, host a day at your work/school where you’re able to collect and raise for the Evelina. This may include games, or a bake sale, drinks, a pink t-shirt day, anything! Get as many people involved as you can – raising a giving is such a great way to spend time and bond with your peers.

I hope you take inspiration from my ideas and gather your loved ones to raise money in aid of #THANKYOUFOR150 and help us reach our target. Don’t be afraid to think of your own fundraising ideas too – the more creative the better!
