Events

The aim of Children's Hope Foundation is to establish a variety of events throughout the year which, although helping us to raise much needed funds, will also allow you to find out more about our work and at the same time have a great time.

If you would like to organise an event for Children's Hope Foundation, please get in touch with Tom and we will advertise your event on this page

British10K London Run

 

Run for :)miles and put a smile on the children's faces

We have a few places in the British 10K London Run which takes place on Sunday 12th July. Please join us and run for children with special needs and help them enjoy many of the things we take for granted. Help them fulfill their dreams and achieve their full potential.

Working in the Office

 

We currently have offices in London where there are clerical or administrative opportunities. At our head office in London we currently have a great need for a part-time book-keeper who can perhaps work 5 to 10 hours per week maintaining the charity's computerised accounts.

 

Fundraising

 

The most difficult task for any charity is to ensure that sufficient funds are always coming in to fulfill all of the requests that are received daily. Fundraising can be fun and can also be a great way of getting out and meeting new people or just keeping up with old friends. Click here for a fundraising pack. From our offices in London and Sunderland we have opportunities for people to volunteer directly with us collecting funds at pre-organised venues. If you would like details of these opportunities, or if you would like to set up a local branch, please ring Tom on 020 7700 6855.

 

Holding Events

 

Holding an event can be a great opportunity to have a fun day with friends, neighbours, club members or work colleagues and is a fantastic way to raise funds for Children's Hope Foundation. Click here for a fundraising pack. If, however, you have a specific idea in mind please call us and we will help in every way we can to ensure you have a fun and successful event.

 

Taking part in a Challenge

 

In association with timeoutdoors.com there are a huge number of events which you can take part in, both in the UK and overseas. This can range from running in the British 10K London run to taking part in the Inca Challenge or the Canadian Rockies Cycle Adventure. There is something for everyone and includes running, cycling, walking, climbing, paddling, adventure and du/triathlon. Whatever your sport, there will be something for you to take part in.

 

At your Place of Work

 

Ask your Employer to:- make us their "Charity of the Year"

or to hold a fundraising event,
or to support by adding our name to their web-site
or to start a ‘Give as you earn’ scheme.

(£1 a week from all staff and managers makes a wonderful donation to give at the end of a year)

 

Dress Down Day

 

Get your colleagues to pay for the privilege of wearing jeans or fancy dress. To raise more money, you could also fine those who don't take part!

Sports

 

Take your colleagues canoeing, abseiling, go-karting, a day/night at the races and charge people extra for taking part. Softball, football, etc... Get sponsored to walk to work for a month. Get sponsored for doing something silly such as having half a beard shaved off, leg waxing for men, wearing wellies full of jelly.

 

Other ways to get Involved

 

Swear box
Fine everyone who swears. Managers pay double, of course...

For hire
You might have a meeting room, a video conferencing suite or a minibus which you could hire out. You could even sell the services of the design department for a day.

Recycle
Make money by recycling paper, drink cans and even photocopier cartridges. Are there any other waste products produced by your company that could be turned into cash?

Raffle
Organise a raffle. It's a great way to raise money. The most important thing is to get good prizes, especially the first prize. Local companies could give you weekend breaks, hair cuts, meals, electrical goods, bikes, supermarket vouchers, signed football shirts, car hire. Childrens Hope Foundation has some handy hints for organising a raffle.

Sweepstakes
For the Grand National, Wimbledon, the British Open, football competitions etc. You can hold separate sweepstakes for the winning team, time of the first goal, number of goals scored etc. Charge less for multiple entries.

Promise Auction
You can auction promises in your department e.g. doing someone's filing for one week.

Party
Organise a 'social' and charge people to attend. Organise a wine tasting evening - ask for a donation of wine from your local off licence and charge your colleagues to guess which wine is which! What about raising money at the Christmas Party?

Sports
Take your colleagues canoeing, abseiling, go-karting, a day/night at the races and charge people extra for taking part. Softball, football, etc... Get sponsored to walk to work for a month. Get sponsored for doing something silly such as having half a beard shaved off, leg waxing for men, wearing wellies full of jelly.

Collection box
Walk a collection box around the office or leave it at reception.

Suppliers and customers
They could sponsor you or reward an excellent piece of client support by you with a donation towards your fundraising for Childrens Hope Foundation. They can also be a good source of gifts in kind for raffles.

Inter-department challenge
Make any of the above a competition to see which department can raise the most money for Childrens Hope Foundation.

Matched donations: don't forget that whatever you do, your employer could be happy to match at least some of the money you have raised. You don't know if you don't ask!
