With the cancellation of all our usual fundraising events during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to find safe ways to raise money and support Hearts & Souls.

There are lots of ways you could help to raise funds for Hearts & Souls and we’ve shared some ideas below.

Set yourself a challenge:

  • Sponsored walk
  • Run a 5K, 10K, half or full Marathon
  • Swim-athon
  • Sponsored walk
  • Triathlon

Online Auction:

  • Ask for donations from business, friends and family and set up an online auction using social media.
  • People can browse the lots and place bids from the comfort of their own homes.
  • Place a deadline on bids and use a fundraising page for people to pay for their winning lots.

Lockdown imagination:

  • Set your own challenge!
  • Climb the equivalent of Snowdon using your staircase, complete a marathon in the backyard…the possibilities are endless!

Birthday or Xmas Donation Gift:

  • Celebrating a birthday in lockdown?
  • Ask for donations to Hearts & Souls instead of presents and use your celebrations to help others when it matters most.


  • If you’re a whizz in the kitchen, put your talents to good use.
  • Ask friends, family or neighbours for a donation in return for making their favourite cakes, bakes or box of treats!

Thank you so much for your generous support and remember to set up your JustGiving page to help you collect donations on your fundraising adventure.
