Fundraising and cash donations

The best way you can help is through a regular cash donation, however small.

Regular donations mean we can plan ahead and respond quickly to emergencies. Regular donations are better for your bank balance too – in these difficult times a £10 donation may seem a lot to spare, but if you set up a regular donation of £1 per month, it will be easier on your pocket and by the end of the year, you’ll have given us £12!

  • £5 per month will buy a bag a toiletries.
  • £10 per month will allow us to buy a new pair of trainers.

Setting up a regular donation is easy. Just go to our Just Giving page by clicking on the button below, select the Monthly option, and follow the instructions on the screen.

Can’t afford a regular donation? One-off donations are welcome too!

Fundraise for us

Due to Covid-19, fundraising in large gatherings is not possible. However, that still leave plenty that you can do.

You can set up your own fundraising page through JustGiving – just follow the link below to get started. If you find all that a bit technical, you can always raise money offline and send it to us as a one-off donation on our JustGiving page using the link above.

You can also use our paper sponsorship form if you prefer:

Here are a few fundraising ideas – but we’re sure you’ll be able to come up with even better ones of your own!

  • Want to get fit but need some motivation? Set yourself a goal and ask friends and family to sponsor you as you meet it. Perhaps you want to walk 10,000 steps per day for a week, or run a mile every day. You might want to count the miles you walk, run or cycle over a longer period and take a virtual journey. How long will it take for you to walk from Land’s End to John O’Groats? Or perhaps you’d like to cycle to Calais – it’s only 298km from Southampton!
  • Fitness not your thing? Get sponsored to shave your head, run a quiz on Zoom or come up with something completely unique.

Let us know what you are doing so we can publicise your fundraising effort and get you some extra sponsors!
