Fundraising ideas @ home

During the pandemic a number of us found a new love of quizzes as it was a great way for us to socialise albeit virtually.  

Whilst ensuring you are still following any government guidelines why not host a quiz, you can include picture quizzes whether it be guess the famous person, or guess how old someone is in the picture. A picture quiz is often very welcome amid a normal quiz.  

Everybody loves a Cuppa and a piece of cake, so why not host a tea party or coffee morning? You could also add a “guess the weight of the cake “competition and put one of our collection boxes nearby to boost potential donations.  

 

Why not set up a Facebook birthday fundraiser by following https://socialimpact.facebook.com/charitable-giving/birthday-fundraiser/ and search for us “South Central Ambulance Charity”.  

Has your hair gone wild during the last 18 months? Are your friends and family nagging you to get a haircut? Why not host your very own live Haircut or Headshave? 

As New Year, approaches are you thinking of giving up smoking. As you know two packets of cigarettes, a week can cost around £27.20 per week that is £108.80 per month. The yearly cost to keep a Community First Responder (CFR) out in their community is £310. That is less than 3 months’ worth of cigarettes to have someone out in their community saving lives.  

Fundraising in your workplace

Could you have us as your Charity of Choice, if so please visit our Corporate Fundraising Page 

What could be better than ending the week with a Doughnut? Did you know Krispy Kreme sell original glazed doughnuts at a fundraising price of £5.50 per dozen for you to then sell at the RRP to generate donations for charity (Terms and Conditions apply, please visit https://www.krispykreme.co.uk/fundraising-dozen.html for more information.  

We all know that the occasional dress down day can bring Friday joy to the office; maybe you could plan a couple over the year or every quarter? They are very easy to organise and you could set a suggested donation of £2, you could arrange it around Easter, Halloween and Christmas if your colleagues would be up for fancy dress.   

Fundraising at school

Would you like someone to come into your school and show your children how to save a life, or to talk about the Ambulance Service? In return, could you hold a non-school uniform day, a cake sale, and disco or sports day for us? For more information, please contact our Community Fundraiser  

How could your community group or club help us?

Are you part of a Community Group or Club such as a WI, Freemasons, or Rotary? There are many ways your groups and clubs can support us, such as fundraising events, collecting donations. 

How could we help you, help us? We can offer talks about our role with in the Ambulance Service and our CFRs along with CPR Training and AED/Defibrillators awareness sessions for a suggested donation of £100. 

Supporting us and our ambulance colleagues in your community really does mean so much. Without support like yours, we cannot be there for our patients and colleagues when they need us the most.  

At South Central Ambulance Charity and SCAS we have always been proud of our continuing enhancements in patient care, our passion to always be better and to always try and give the best possible care and your support allows us to continue on that journey, so thank you.
