Hold Your Own

Fundraising Event

First of all, a huge thank you for showing an interest in fundraising for carers in India, Nepal and Bangladesh.

Some of you may already know exactly what you want to do and are ready to get going whilst others may be thinking “where do I start”? Below are just some of the fundraising ideas we have, but the possibilities are endless.

"I attended a Virtual Curry for Carers event. It is a great initiative and it was fun to take part in!"


Any of these ideas could be done in the office or at home

If you are still working from home but part of a bigger team, why not incorporate some of these ideas over your catch up calls on Zoom or Microsoft Office teams.

Curry For Carers

Hold a curry night for you, your friends and family, either in a restaurant or from the comfort of your own home. Our Fundraising Toolkit provides you with a step-by-step guide on how to make the event a fundraising success. Check out our Curry For Carers Fundraising Toolkit for all the information you need.

Special Occasions

Whatever the occasion, by asking friends and family for donations instead of gifts you can make a real difference to the lives of carers and their families. Setting up a birthday fundraiser is super quick and easy on Facebook and a great way to let everyone know about what you are doing.

Contact a variety of local businesses in your area and ask them to donate raffle prizes which can then be auctioned off to your office mates, neighbours, friends and family. You may wish to contact hairdressers, independent clothes stores, confectionaries etc. This could be great publicity for local businesses who may be struggling at the moment.

Digital Detox

Digital Detox

In a time where we are all phone addicts, why not do a sponsored 24 hour digital detox, a harder challenge than you think. Or you could give up something else that you love for a week or month like chocolate or alcohol.

bingo balls

Quiz Or Bingo

Organise a general knowledge quiz or musical bingo where the first one to guess the song wins. You can do this with work colleagues or with friends and family. Easy to do virtually over Zoom, Skype or Teams.

Hottest Curry Challenge

Take on a challenge! Do you or someone you know really enjoy a spicy curry? How about daring yourself or them to try some different types of spicy curries or chillies to see just how hot you or they can handle?

Shave It Or Grow It

Could you get sponsored to shave your head or trim your long locks? Or do it the other way around and grow the ever-popular hipster moustache or beard.

slime icon

Slime Challenge

Get a boss at work or a friend to be dunked with slime or sit in a bath of baked beans. Set it up to watch via Zoom and you don’t have to be part of the mess!

Fancy dress, fun games and raffles can all be themed around national holidays like Valentines Day, Halloween, Christmas or Easter. The possibilities are endless.
