Fundraising while staying safe

Would you like to organise your own fundraiser for Pact? Don't let COVID stop you! There are plenty of ways you can get stuck in while staying safe.

Take on a challenge in your own backyard

Perhaps you could row the channel on a rowing machine, run a marathon round your garden or local park, or even climb Snowdon on a step machine?

Start a community collection

For something a little less exercise-intensive, how about teaching a craft or cooking class on Zoom? Why not organise a virtual coffee morning or your own Great British Bake Off? There are plenty of ways to get your community involved, and raising awareness as well as money is a great way to support our work. You could even organise a quiz! If you need some hints and tips for questions, take a look at our Parish Hub for a free downloadable quiz that you can use. 

How do I get started?

We're always happy to help you plan and organise your fundraising events, and we would love to support you however we can. Get in touch with us on [email protected] and we'll help you get going!

You could fundraise through your school or University

We always welcome teachers and students wanting to get involved in our work but appreciate that this might be more difficult than usual during the pandemic. Why not consider planning to support us when things start to feel more normal? Perhaps you'd like to hold a special assembly, organise a non-uniform day or hold a bake sale or sports day to raise money for us? Many schools and Universities also have a Charity of the Year that we'd love to be nominated for!

We have lots of materials that can be used to spread the word about our work and how your donations can make a lasting difference to the lives of children and families affected by imprisonment. Please do get in touch with us on [email protected] if you would like to find out more. 

You could raise money through your church or Parish

If you are part of a faith community, our Parish Hub has a wealth of resources and ideas for ways to fundraise together throughout the year.

You could donate your time

We are always looking for volunteers who can dedicate their time to supporting our work with prisoners, their families and people with convictions, in the community and in custody. There are a variety of different opportunities so there's something for everyone! Find out more about volunteering with Pact. (Please note: we might not have any volunteering roles in your area, especially during the pandemic, but we’d still love to hear from you as there may be roles in the future that would interest you!)
