Fundraising for HnH
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together
We want to reach and improve the lives of everyone in our communities. But we need your help to do it. We need committed and enthusiastic people like you to join the HnH fundraising team and to get involved. Whether you hold a sponsored event, take part in an organised event, make a one off donation or a regular donation or give us your time and energy, you can make a huge difference to the most vulnerable of all ages in our communities.
If you need some inspiration in coming up with an idea for a fundraising event or activity we have created this Healthy n Happy A-Z of Fundraising, it is filled with fun suggestions to get you started

For example for our Bike recycling project we are always on the lookout for old or unloved bikes that we can recycle and give a new lease of life for someone else to use. We are also on the lookout for cycling clothing that can be re-used. Please visit Biketown at Unit 5 Thomson Court Rutherglen.
Events and Community Fundraising
Thank you for considering HnH as a beneficiary for your community fundraiser. Whether you are an ‘event expert’ or trying it for the first time, organising a community fundraiser has lots of benefits for everyone:
- Raise money for a good cause and help your local community
- Build new relationships with people, including local businesses and other community groups
- Perhaps you’ll learn some new skills
- Add your organising experience to your CV
- Bring everyone together to have fun
Who to fundraise with
Whether it's your classmates at school, college or university, your team-mates at work, your local sports team or the group you do a hobby with it is always more fun to do your fundraising event with a group of you to share the workload.
How to set up your fundraising event
No matter how large or how small the event you’d like to run – there are some key questions you need to consider - for example where will you hold it, how will you get people to come to it, what will you do if it snows (which of course in Scotland it typically might - even in June) This is where our experience helps. So your event runs as smoothly as possible, we've produced some top tips for setting up an event. Our community fundraising guide will tell you what you need to think about.
Keeping your fundraising event legal
All fundraising activity is governed by charity laws and some of them may be relevant to the event you're organising. To help you determine just exactly what you do and don't need to know just check out our FAQs
Taking Part in an event on our behalf
Fundraising by taking part in events are a vital way of supporting our work. That's why we encourage our supporters to take part in whatever organised events are already underway and ideally getting sponsored with our t-shirt on your back. Want to walk run or cycle 5k or 10K or run a marathon? Cycle 50 miles? Do a triathlon? Bungee Jump off the forth road bridge? Really want to push yourself - what about a Tough Mudder? The 3 Peaks challenge, walking the West Highland Way.
There are plenty of challenging organised events that we’d love you to consider taking part in and getting some sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues to support you in achieving your goal. Here’s a few to give you some ideas...
