There are lots of exciting, creative and fun ways you can fundraise for the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity.
Without your amazing fundraising efforts and heartfelt donations, the charity would not be able to offer patients of all ages our vital support – we really appreciate it!
Whether you would like to take part in an event or organise your own – we will support you.
If you’re thinking of fundraising for the charity, here are a few ideas to inspire you.
Getting work colleagues involved in your fundraising activity is a great opportunity to boost your team spirit and have some fun, while also raising money for charity.
The best way to fundraise at work and to inspire your charitable events throughout the year is to nominate the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity as your Charity of the Year.
You could also bake buns and biscuits for a cake sale, or wear your jeans and t-shirts for a dress down day. You could bring a packed lunch to work and donate your dinner money to charity – encouraging your colleagues to do the same too. If you have any budding Egg Heads or Mastermind champions in your midst, then why not organise a charity quiz night?
Fundraising isn’t just for grown-ups!
We’d love to see children and young people of all ages getting involved in fundraising activity for our charity. You could invite your parents, siblings, friends and members of the community to a school summer garden party. Or you could put your team spirit to the test by hosting a sponsored school sports day. Or why not encourage your school buddies to support our Dr Ted children’s appeal by bringing their favourite teddies to school for a teddy bear’s picnic?
Raising money for charity is a fantastic incentive to get fit and healthy. You could don your swimsuit and take part in a sponsored swim. Or grab your running shoes for a sponsored walk or run – you could do anything from a short and speedy 5K run to a challenging marathon. We have a team of colleagues and charity supporters also taking part in the Run for All Sheffield 10K to raise money for the charity. Get in touch if you would like to join them too.
Take on a challenge
Taking on a sponsored challenge can be an exciting and life-changing experience, as well as a great way to raise money for charity. For an unforgettable experience, why not take part in a skydive, a bungee jump or abseil a local landmark? Or you could ask your friends and family to sponsor you to undertake a personal challenge to inspire you to lose weight or quit smoking.
