Get crafty

Whether a seasoned pro or starting out, handmade means heartfelt. Whether you make jewellery or poetry, you crochet or paint, sell your crafts to fundraise - and tell your buyers about your good cause.

Ice cream social

Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month? As if we needed an excuse! What better opportunity to partner with a local ice cream parlour? Or set up a DIY sundae station!

Game for good

From speedruns to Twitch marathons, fundraising via video gaming is huge. Spend a day with Kratos, get your pals together for a battle royale, set personal goals - all while inspiring young people.

Carboot for good

A classic. Clear out your dusty old records and classic t-shirts while raising some money for life-changing sailing adventures.

Brave the shave

New year, new do? A big change deserves big praise, so why not raise some funds while trying out a different look. It is tried and tested and requires bravery!

Wimbledon sweepstake

The tennis tournament returns in July, so why not set up a sweepstake? Charge £5 for entry with the winner receiving half while donating the other half. Go the extra mile and throw a Wimbledon-themed party with strawberries and cream!

Water fight!

Organise a water fight in your garden or a nearby park. Gather your friends and family and have everyone donate to take part. Whip out your best water pistols in an ode to the Trust's legendary water fights.


Perfect for friends, family or colleagues, in person or virtual. Winners receive half with the other half becoming a donation. House!

Nothing is more powerful than word of mouth. Spread the word, tell your friends, family and colleagues or fellow students what you are doing and why supporting the Trust is important to you.

You can share directly to all the main social media networks, including Facebook, Instagram Twitter and LinkedIn, or if email or WhatsApp works best for you, use that instead.

Maybe mix it up across all platforms as you share with the world what you're doing, how you're getting on with preparing and why people should get involved and support you. You can also download paper sponsorship forms as part of our fundraising pack here.

The more you make your story connect with people the more they will be willing to support you.

Do I have to do a challenge?

No. If you simply want to show your support for people who are taking on #200for20 go to our #200for20 campaign page to donate. Or if you want to get a collection going at school, work or any club or organisation you're part of, contact the team and we can send you as many collection boxes as you need.

I know my limits a bit more because I’ve been able to push them with that support.

Chrissy was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma just before her graduation, her sense of normality disappearing overnight. The Trust has helped her get back on track.
