Our lovely trekker, Mary Fletcher, has just returned from Trekking India and here’s how she raised her sponsorship.
I set up an on-line JustGiving website which raised £575.00 from my friends
I organised a quiz night. I went to my local cricket club and they volunteered the venue for free, as their contribution to the Hospice.
I wrote to M&S, Sainsbury’s and Tesco to see if they would each donate a raffle prize – and they all did. I also went to my local shops and they all sponsored me. In total I raised £1000.00 from this event.
I also organised a Curry Lunch with a glass of wine and held a raffle - I invited 12 people and raised £260.00
I organised a few coffee mornings to help my fundraising.Some my local friends popped in to my first coffee morning and I raised £160. At my second coffee morning I organised a raffle, made marmalade, jam and shortbread which all sold.
This raised £120.00
I gave my yoga group, my keep fit group and also my gym group tubes of Smarties - they ate the Smarties then filled the tubes with 20p's - each tube holds £12.00!
My local café agreed that I could display a Photo of myself and an explanation of my challenge along with a Hospice Collection box - this raised £40.00
Oh and not forgetting the support of my family, who all donated for my challenge.
