Fundraising Plan

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! It was an odd one for me... I had a wonderful night with the girls on Friday (a late one though) and the was kept up by all the drunken student walking home from the club until about 5 o'clock. So basically I don't feel like I've had any sleep. Constantly making myself excuses to have a lazy day!

On the other hand though, I'm feeling quite positive and motivated. On Friday I went to a fundraising workshop and 1-2-1 meeting with our Childreach Officer about our climb up Kilimanjaro. Although I didn't exactly get anything new from it, it left me feeling very motivated and reassured that I can raise the amount needed before the deadline (26th June). It was a time to discuss all sorts of ideas for fundraising with our team mates and then write down how to put them into action. Like I said, I didn't really get any new ideas but something clicked to make me actually want to do them and I figured out how. I've been busy this weekend so I spent most of the afternoon yesterday writing our how and roughly when I am going to do things.

So far I have raised 10% of my overall total which it quite good compared to some people, however others are fortunate enough to have some rich family members who own businesses. A while ago I did a A to Z of fundraising ideas, so now I want to let you know what I shall hopefully be up to over the coming months to perhaps add to that list or see how I'm actually using some of them!

Corporate Sponsorship - Write a letter to business asking for raffle prizes or sponsorship.


Send out sponsorship forms - Ask family members and friends to take in a sponsorship form into their work.

Youtube video - VLOGGIN COMING SOON! I shall do a video about fundraising and the challenge!

Go barefoot for the day - It's a common known fact that many in third world countries go without suitable clothing and shoes are often forgotten so I shall will try it out for a day and see how I survive.


Get in touch with old schools - I shall be contacting my primary and high schools, and college to see if I am able to do something. Perhaps a non-unifrom day or asking them to simply bringing in any spare change!


Fitness Fun Day - Initially I wanted to do this over Easter half term but this may change to June. The idea is to get local fitness instructors to do a bunch of one hour sessions. With a tuck shop and raffle. Kids activities will be available too!

Pub Quiz - I have an Easter themed pub quiz planned at a local pub on the 11th April! There will also be a raffle!

Public Collections - When I'm at home, I will dress up and go collecting in my home town areas!

Brazilian Carnival - Since £5 pays for 145 children to attend circus workshops in Brazil, it only seems right that we put on our own sort of circus carnival around campus! I'd like to do this on my birthday if possible (27th April)!


DARES - You know when people say "I'd give you a fiver if you pour a bucket of water over your head", that's the idea.. What would you make me do for money? I've starting advertising this now because I can do some dares over the next few months but in May I'm going to set up a stall outside of the SU and have gunge, eggs, cream, and pies ready for people to throw at me!

Bag Pack - I will be getting in touch with some supermarkets to ask if I can do a little bag pack just to raise that little bit extra!


Pub Collections - Again, just to raise that little bit more, I will try and dress up and go around some pubs to collect spare change!

If I can raise what I have estimated for each event then hopefully I will be way above what I need to raise. Now I'm feeling motivated I'm ready to make sure I get all the planning done ahead of time.

If you have any ways in which you could help me, maybe by taking in a sponsorship form into work, or hosting a little coffee morning, or even just donating, everything helps!

You can now text donate by sending UNLOCK193351 to 70007 which will donate £3!

Wish me luck!
