Don’t forget to share your fundraiser on social media and to tag St Ann’s, if you’re taking part in any of the ideas below. Do what you enjoy, do it safely and do it for St Ann’s.
Stream for St Ann’s
Calling all gamers, we’re challenging you to become the ultimate MVP by streaming your game time to help raise vital funds for our hospice! It’s a fantastic way that will put the fun in fundraiser and you can tailor your stream to the platform of your choice, whether that be on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook or Instagram. It’s so easy to do and for more ideas please visit the JustGiving gaming guide here.
Player one, are you ready? If so, head over to our Stream for St Ann’s JustGiving page and set up your fundraiser today.
Gaming is a unique way to get your friends, family and colleagues involved in your charity event. St Ann’s supporter, Dylan, recently set up his own gaming fundraiser, which raised over £1,300, in memory of his grandma who received care at our hospice. Read Dylan’s story here.
Kick back, relax and challenge yourself, friends and family, from your sofa, with a virtual quiz night. You can use one of the many quiz apps or make up your own!
Virtual Comedy Night
Are you a budding comedian with a natural comedic presence? Why not share your skills and put a smile on everyone’s face by hosting a comedy night via Facebook Live. You can ask people to donate in the comment section!
Zoom Pub Crawl
Hit the ‘pubs’ with your friends by hosting a virtual pub crawl via Zoom. You can name your various rooms after your favourite drinking spots and after drink move on. It’s a great way to connect with your friends, and you could make a donation after every ‘pub’ stop. Are you missing the pub with your friends?
Let’s get physical, put your workout skills to the test and stream a workout ‘class’ through Facebook or Instagram Live. It could be anything from yoga, pilates or old school aerobics with legwarmers and neon clothing to boot. Set up a Just Giving page and ask for a donation to St Ann’s Hospice for all those who attend.
Sing it Loud, Sing it Proud
Keep everyone entertained with an online gig (good or bad), and share your talent through Facebook or Instagram live. You can set up a Just Giving page and ask your fans to make a donation to St Ann’s.
Scrabble for St Ann’s
Dust off your Scrabble board game and get everyone involved with the fun whilst having an entertaining evening. You could donate the amount of your highest scoring word to St Ann’s.
Virtual Birthday Party
Don’t let lockdown dampen your birthday celebrations, set up a Zoom party and ask for a donation to St Ann’s in replacement of cards and gifts. Alternatively, you could donate the money you would have spent on a birthday party or night out.
Grow your own Veg
Unearth your green thumb and get digging with your mates by setting yourselves the challenge of growing the tallest tomatoes, perkiest peas or skyward sunflower. You could charge an entry fee for everyone to see your progress or measure your largest growths and donate the figure to St Ann’s.
Our street collections have been temporarily suspended but that doesn’t mean you can’t shake a virtual bucket via social media. Why not join our Keep on Collecting! JustGiving campaign or set up a Facebook donate page and ask your friends to donate, just like they would on a busy high-street at the weekend.
Right now, a lot of us are spending more time at home and now it’s the perfect opportunity for you to put your time to good use. Your donations will help fund vital hospice care in your local community and enable our exceptional staff to continue to provide world-class care to our patients and their loved ones.
