Fundraising Ideas

Help us continue our work

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in fewer fundraisers for PSC Support, especially now as we head into winter 2021.

If you'd like to fundraise for PSC Support, think outside the box! Here are some great fundraising ideas to help you get started.

If you're already planning a fundraising event or challenge, thank you. We do not receive any government funding and rely solely on donations and fundraising by people like you.

Donate your birthday

Very simple, quick and surprisingly effective: when you create a Facebook post, click on 'Raise money', and type PSC Support to find our charity.

You can also create your own special Facebook fundraising page by clicking here.

It's wonderful to see people do this on their birthdays. Perhaps you don’t need gifts, especially when that money could be spent in a much more meaningful way.

Facebook instructions

Online shopping

Donate for free as you buy online from major retailers, using AmazonSmile, GiveAsYouLive, TheGivingMachine and easyfundraising.

Virtual pub quiz

Get your friends and family together on Zoom, Skype or FaceTime and test their knowledge. Set up a JustGiving page and ask your guests for a donation to take part.

Online gig

Are you a musician or a comedian, or know someone who is? Showcase your talent by going live on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube and ask your audience to donate to your JustGiving page.

Online tutorials

Share your skills with others through an online tutorial and ask for a donation to your JustGiving page in exchange. It could be cooking, dancing, cocktail making, crocheting or guitar-playing - whatever you're good at!

 

Virtual run/walk

Set a running target, such as 3k, 5k or even a half marathon! Set up your JustGiving page and start running or walking! You could reach your target in your house, garden or as part of your socially-distanced outdoor exercise. Why not challenge a friend by turning it into a race?

Personal challenge

Grow a beard, shave your head, give up chocolate, skydive or run a marathon. Choose your own challenge and take it on as part of a team or on your own. Get your friends and family to sponsor you by donating to your JustGiving page.

Virtual fancy dress party

Invite your friends and family to an online fancy dress party. You could set a theme or just let people use their own imagination! Enjoy online party games and give a prize to the best dressed person. Set up your JustGiving page and ask for a donation to join in the fun!

Donate as you sell

Now is a great time to have a good clear out! Sell any unwanted items on eBay and donate the money you make to PSC Support.

eBay for Charity allows you to list an item on eBay and donate 10-100% of your final sale price to us – it’s that easy. Look out for the charity box just below where you set your price.

Select PSC Support and the percentage (10%-100%) of your final selling price that you'd like to donate.

Swear jar

Pick a word that is used often in your house (it doesn't have to be a swear word) and get members of your household to put £1 in the swear jar every time they say it. Donate the collection to PSC Support.

The Great Virtual Bake Off!

Get a group of your friends and family together for a delicious baking competition. Set up your JustGiving page and charge everyone an entry fee. Choose your judge and get participants to present their baked goods over FaceTime, Zoom or Skype. The winner gets the proud title of Star Baker!
