Different ways to help your fund grow
Whether you want to involve others or keep your fund as a private tribute, we appreciate all of your support.
Here are some of the most popular ways our friends like to donate and fundraise in memory of loved ones.
Donations on special days
Lots of people like to pay tribute on days that hold special meaning, such as birthdays and anniversaries, or on Remembrance Sunday or at Christmas. In this way, your loved one can still be an important part of family occasions.
Funeral or memorial collections
Asking for donations to your Hero Fund is a simple way to ensure tributes are collected together. You will be able to see the amount raised and the messages and memories shared by friends and family can be a great source of comfort at a difficult time.
Gifts in lieu of presents
If you have a special occasion coming up, why not ask friends, family and colleagues for donations to your Hero Fund? Their gifts will change lives.
Organise a fundraising event
Making the most of your hobbies and talents is a great way to make your fundraising personal and enjoyable. Whether you bake, barbecue, sell pre-loved items, hold a garden party, karaoke competition or sponsored silence you’ll be raising vital funds in the company of people who care.
Fundraise at work
Hold a raffle, have a cake sale, get sponsored for taking part in an event or organise a lunchtime quiz and charge colleagues for taking part.
Spread the word
Once you’ve decided how you want to fundraise, let others know so they can support you. You can put up posters, call your local radio station or newspaper, promote your event at work and create a buzz on social media.
