There are lots of ways you can raise funds for the Saving Lives Helipad Appeal and help us reach our £3 million target. Here are just a few ideas to get you started, but feel free to be as inventive as you like!
Support an event
Take a look at our Events page to find out what’s on in your local area. Both Nottingham Hospitals Charity and our supporters frequently organise a wide range of events, from cycle rides and marathons to prize draws and pamper evenings.
Depending on the type of event, you could show your support by simply buying a ticket and going along on the day, donating to someone who’s already taking part – or signing up to have a go yourself.
Set up a fundraising activity
A fundraising activity is a great way of raising funds from something you and your friends enjoy doing. The opportunities really are endless – from holding a cake sale, curry night or barbecue to organising a quiz night, coffee morning or car boot sale.
If you’re short on time, you could consider a simpler option. This might be a sponsored dress-down (or fancy dress) day at work, a ‘guess the name’ style prize draw, or just asking your workplace to display a collecting tin and poster in a public area.
Flexible fundraising challenges
Your challenge can be as big or as little as you like! Ideas for smaller challenges include a sponsored swim, silence or head shave, whilst a bigger challenge might be a tandem skydive, marathon run, London to Paris bike ride or a trek through the Himalayas.
If you’re interested in taking on a bigger challenge, make sure you visit our Events page as you may be able to sign up to an event that’s already been arranged.
