Fundraise Go Purple Fundraising Ideas Sign up! Please make sure we have your details as we want to help in any way we can, we want to share in your day and most importantly thank you for your hard work! Set the date! We are hoping most people will be joining in on Friday 14th October but if it really doesn’t fit with your schedule there is no harm in choosing a different date. Decide on your activities. Are you organising something at work, in your school or at home with friends? There are so many things you can do; the sky is the limit! Have a wear purple day / dress down day, a bake sale or coffee morning. Arrange an event such as a quiz, bingo night or cocktail party, organise a fun day at school with face painting and games. And the trusted charity raffle is always a winner for any fundraising occasion! Let your imagination go wild and have fun with it! Spread the word. Let everyone know what you are doing and when you are doing it. Set up a Facebook event page, send out an email, put up some posters, schedule it in everyone’s diary or put it on the company intranet. Let everyone know why you’re doing your event! Let them know how important it is and ask for their support. You could also set up a JustGiving page and share it in your emails with your team. If you need help with this please don’t hesitate to contact us. Call in some favours. If you can enlist some helpers it will make everything so much easier. Maybe ask someone to judge the best outfit or do you know someone who is a talented baker or quiz master! Think of fun jobs and get people involved. Set up reminders. One week out send a reminder email / text / message in your group chats and maybe even the day before send another one. It will help remind everyone but also get them excited about joining in the fun. Gift Aid Forms. Please make sure you have enough gift aid forms. Gift Aid allows us to claim back an extra 25% of each donation given to Ayrshire Hospice by a UK taxpayer. This is an easy and free way to increase your donation! Tweet about it! We’d love to see what you and your friends and colleagues get up to! Take photos and videos and please tag us on social media Facebook @ayrshirehospice or #gopurple2022 Make your donation. Once your event is over you can feel extremely proud of what you have achieved. Sign Up Today!
