Want to raise some money for a good cause but not sure how? We’ve come up with a handy list of ideas, but there are endless other ways to get involved if you're feeling creative.

Fundraising for Swings & Smiles can be taken on by individuals, groups and corporates and we're always open to new ideas. To find out more get in touch with [email protected]

Get fit

Taking part in a fitness challenge is a great way to raise money. Running, walking and cycling races are always popular, but people have also held power lifting competitions at work and trekked the incredible Inca Trail in Peru to raise funds. Check out our current challenge events or get in touch if you have another idea.

Give something up

If you fancy giving up pints/chocolate/online shopping for a month then pop the ££s you’d have spent on treats in a pot and we’ll be happy to take them off your hands! You could also set up an online fundraising page and ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you.

Donations instead of gifts

If you're getting married and aren't asking for gifts, you could ask your guests to donate to Swings & Smiles instead. Simply set up an online fundraising page and send them the link along with your invitation. This could also be done for birthdays, Christmas or other events in lieu of pressies. 

Donate while you shop

Did you know that you can donate to Swings & Smiles while shopping on Amazon? All you need to do is shop using smile.amazon.co.uk and choose Swings & Smiles as your charity and we'll get a little bit of money every time you make an order.

Collection tins

Do you know a friendly local shop/pub/café who would be happy to have one of our collection tins at the till? We'd love more places to display one of our tins to help spread the word about Swings & Smiles and bring in some extra pennies.

Cake sales

Who doesn't love a slice of cake? Cake sales always go down a storm at schools/offices/fetes and are a fantastic way for some of our younger supporters to get involved. You could even turn it into a Bake Off if you're feeling more competitive!

Dress down days

Dress down days/Christmas jumper days/fancy dress days are a great way for corporates to raise some money all while having a bit of fun at work. You could even combine this with a cake sale for double the fun and double the fundraising.
