These are our top easy fundraising ideas that you can take on yourself to make a big impact. Raise money for lifesaving research and help beat heartbreak forever.

Get sponsored!

This is our top suggestion: get sponsored to do something silly or challenging - or both! Whether you're going to wear different makeup for a month, or sit in a bath of beans, or wear a chicken costume to work, it doesn't matter. Set up a JustGiving page then share your story, and your friends, family and colleagues will support you. Can't decide on your challenge? Ask your friends and family for ideas!

Head shave

Shaving your head is a great and easy way to raise money! Simply set up a Just Giving page and get the word out through social media channels. Put up some photos of before and after. If you need some inspiration of how effective social media advertising can be, take a look at our fundraisers' stories

Sports challenge

Are you looking for the next big challenge? Or wanting to get into fitness or generally live a healthy lifestyle? Then take a look at one of our local events coming up in your area and try to challenge yourself.

Lent it out

Why not take that much needed break away from technology by giving it up for lent and challenge yourself to spend a week or more camping under the stars? Just be sure someone is looking after your home while you are away.

Gaming for Social Good 

Turn your passion for gaming into lifesaving research. With gaming for social good, you can livestream playing your favourite video game for hours while raising money for us! 

Get your friends involved 

You don't have to fundraise alone, why not get your friends, family or colleagues involved? From pub quizzes, dinner parties to dress down days in the office, there's something for everyone to get involved with.
