Looking for ideas?

Embrace football fever by taking part in our World Cup Sweepstake to raise funds for The Hospice of St Francis! It’s a great way to get into the fundraising spirit with friends, family and colleagues.There are a few basic rules that you will need to follow when organising your sweepstake, click here to find out more.

Kick start your fundraising with these extra fundraising ideas...


Come Dine With Me

Ask guests to donate what they would normally pay for a meal out or set the price in advance for a World Cup themed dinner party with dishes from around the globe. Include an after dinner quiz!


5 Aside Tournament

Invite friends and colleagues to enter teams into your football tournament and charge each team to play. Add in a keepy-uppy challenge and see who in the office or your group of friends can do the greatest number of keepy-uppies in a row. Charge players to enter the competition and the winner gets a prize.


Not a fan of football?

Host your own Anti-World Cup fundraiser! A coffee morning, cheese and wine night, whatever you fancy. Just make sure no one mentions the football! You can even include a fine box and charge £1 to anyone that brings up the game!

Fancy something else?

From coffee mornings to skydives, discos to duathlons, there are literally thousands of ways you can raise money to help support our care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in West Herts and South Bucks.

You could participate in one of the events we’re organising like our Bubble Rush or Santa Dash. Check our events calendar to see all the upcoming activities you could take part in for the Hospice. 

Or perhaps you’ve already chosen your own challenge? Are you running a marathon or a 5K race? Climbing a mountain? Stopping smoking? Running a quiz? Trekking somewhere exciting? Perhaps you could share your hard work and success with us! 

We’ll provide the support and be cheering you on, whatever the challenge you choose for yourself! For support in planning your event please call our fundraising team on 01442 869555 or e-mail
