Bake sale: A simple but delicious way to fundraise. You can sell your cakes at work with a dedicated coffee morning or have a competition with friends and family to see who is the master baker!
Pub quiz: Do you have a favourite local? If so, you could speak with your pub Landlord about hosting a dedicated quiz night where the cost of entering is donated to us. This is great way to bring groups of friends together and raise awareness about Kinship in your community.
Walks: If you’re not quite ready to tackle a Half Marathon then a sponsored walk could be perfect. Pick a distance that is a personal challenge and ask to be sponsored a set amount per kilometre or per mile walked.
Car boot sale: The perfect way to give your home a spring clean while also raising some money for Kinship.
