Community events help to raise both vital funds and awareness
Organising an event in your local community is a fantastic way to bring people together and we’re grateful that so many of you choose Momentum Children's Charity to benefit from, and be a part of, the events you work so hard to arrange.
As a local charity our community fundraising events are particularly special to us because they often involve people who have been directly touched by our services in Surrey and South West London.
Check out some of our top fundraising ideas...
1. Sell unwanted items on ebay, donate a portion of the profits.
2. Give up something: Ask for sponsorship or simple donate what you save from giving up alcohol, shopping, snacking etc!
3. Host a quiz night at your local pub, charge an entry fee per team and hold a raffle to boost the money raised. You can find loads of tips for hosting your quiz, as well as ready made questions and answers to download here.
4. Gather a team of rowers for the annual Kingston Dragon Boat Race (Sunday 19 July). No experience needed, just a competitive spirit for this fun family day out.
5. Show your stamina with a sponsored danceathon, bikeathon or readathon.
6. Arrange an inter-house school sports competition to burn off steam- £2 per child per entry.
7. Host a tea party or dinner party and ask guests for donations.
8. Arrange a sweepstake for a large sporting event, such as the 6 Nations, World Cup or Grand National.
10.Organise a seasonal event e.g. Easter egg hunt, Summer BBQ, Open Air Film or Christmas Jumper Day
The ideas are endless and we’re here to support all fundraising events, great and small. We can provide materials such as balloons, leaflets, posters, tablecloths and even our charity mascot Mo the Owl, to make your events a success.
