Fundraising ideas

What are you going to do? Here are some ideas to get you started...

Get active

This has been the toughest challenge I have ever done and I am ecstatic to have succeeded. I am so grateful for the many messages of support and congratulations, and for the donations which have far succeeded my target of £5,000 for Crohn's and Colitis UK.

Go casual

Dress-down, dress-up or wear purple at your school or workplace.

We had so much fun wearing purple during Crohn's and Colitis UK Awareness Week to raise awareness and money for the charity.

Get dancing

Organise a disco, danceathon or zumbathon.

Around 80 people supported us in this 2 hour Zumbathon, raising £1,259 for Crohn's and Colitis UK. It was a great day!

Get collecting

Turn small change into a big difference with one of our collecting tins.

Local businesses helped me collect the coins, and my grandson helped count them. We collected £400 in 2p coins!

Get buying

Major retailers donate to charities when you buy through giving websites such as:

Get musical

Hold a concert, talent competition or battle of the bands.

Cadenza Choir held a Carol Concert at St Barnabas Church in Bournemouth. With wine and mulled wine, mince pies and cheese provided after the performance, it was just the thing to get us in the mood for Christmas!

Go without!

Get sponsored for giving up something you will really miss.

I managed a whole month alcohol free to raise awareness for Crohn's and Colitis UK as one of my best friends suffers with the illness. I chose to fundraise for this charity because it would be great for IBD to get more recognition and awareness.
