We welcome aboard anyone who would like to organise small or big fund raising events. It costs approximately £15 per night to accommodate a young person overnight and £7 for travel costs. However, YOU can help us with this! Please do feel able to get in touch to chat to us about your fundraising ideas!
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Coffee Morning with cakes and games, old books stall, clothes sale.
- Run that raffle!
- Sponsored Events – Ever wanted to run 10km, a half marathon or even a marathon? Do a parachute jump or climb Mt Kilimanjaro? The choice is yours: start recruiting your friends and get organising the sponsor form. Challenge yourself, achieve your goals and raise money for Nightstop at the same time!
- Fancy Dress – Could your group or school have a dressing up day, all make a donation for the privilege and raise easy cash for a good cause? If you are a uniformed group you could pay £1 to wear your own clothes for one week.
- Car Wash – Set up a car wash for a day where your group meets, or wash your neighbours’ cars. Everyone puts this job off, so they’re usually very willing to donate some money for someone else to do it. Then this money can be used to stop young people in Gloucestershire from sleeping rough..
Use your initiative and get thinking but most of all get doing. Gloucestershire Nightstop will try and support you in any way we can. Contact us with your ideas and get fundraising!
