Fundraising Ideas A-Z



Offer your skills or services for money



If you don’t have one, create one for free using one of the links below, and keep an online ‘diary’ of your fundraising efforts. It’s a great way of getting the word out there.






If you want to raise lots of money, taking on a charity challenge is the best way to do it. We have a challenge for every ability, and it really couldn’t be more simple to get involved   http://www.treeofhope.org.ukgetinvolved/
