DIY Fundraising and downloads


If you’re thinking about creating your own event or challenge for Hft you’re in the right place! There are hundreds of ways you can fundraise for Hft either by yourself, with friends or as a group. Take inspiration from some of the exciting, challenging and fun-filled ideas below.

  • Get glamorous! Stage a fashion show and charge for admission. You could ask local shops to provide clothes and friends or colleagues to act as models.
  • Work those brain cells by hosting a quiz night at the office or your local pub and charge entry. Ask the boss to donate a prize.
  • Feeling active? Take on a challenging bike ride – Land’s End to John O’ Groats is a favourite, while rides to Paris and Barcelona growing in popularity too – and ask people to sponsor you.
  • Unleash your inner connoisseur by arranging a wine tasting for friends; ask a local wine dealer or independent off-licence to provide a wine expert for the evening and either charge a fee or ask the dealer to donate a share of profits to the charity.
  • Keep quiet – a 24 hour sponsored silence can be a great way of encouraging others to donate (especially if you are the chatty type!).
  • Simple but effective: ask people to donate money to Hft in place of presents on special occasions like anniversaries, Christmas and birthdays.
  • Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through Giveacar! To arrange the donation of a car, visit giveacar.co.uk or call 020 7736 4242, quoting Hft as your preferred charity.
  • If you’re keen to support Hft but only have a couple of minutes free time, sign up to become a Microdood by completing quick and easy Microdeeds!
