The work we do wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our fantastic supporters. In these unprecedented times, we're in greater need than ever to ensure our services reach the most vulnerable, ensuring no one gets left behind.
 
In these uncertain times, we’ve put our thinking cap on to create some fantastic fundraising activities, not only to help raise some donations, but also to help people connect with their loved ones and the community. We’ve tried to put the fun back into fundraising!
 
Anything and everything you do makes such a huge difference to those in need of support. Once you’ve decided on your fundraiser, tell us all about your plans and we will be in touch with your free digital welcome pack, with lots of fundraising tips and tricks along the way!

Spring clean and make some green

Text

There's no time like the present for a spring clean – and what a great way to transform your old stuff into cash!

You can auction off your old items on eBay and donate direct to us.

Alternatively, the wonderful people at Virgin Money Giving have teamed up with World of Books to make turning books, CDs. DVDs and games into donations a no-brainer! Declutter and donate using the Ziffit app and choose Terrence Higgins Trust at the check-out.

Start your own LGBTQ+ book or film club

Text

Create a weekly book or movie club with your friends, family or colleagues!

You can ask each member for title suggestions, or take inspiration from Penguin Random House’s Ultimate LGBTQ+ Pride Book List or Gay Times' 40 Best LGBTQ+  Shows on Netflix.

Choose the day and time for your weekly virtual meet-ups on your favourite platform and each donate the cost of a glass of wine or bag of popcorn to take part.

Share your skills for donations

Text

Are you a dab hand in the art department? Secretly flourishing in writing poetry? Perhaps you’re an expert in Excel, or a up-and-coming stand up comedy star. Whatever your skill is, you could use this time to share your skills and host tutorials for donations!

Musical bingo

Text

Host your own game of musical bingo – taking the bingo hall straight to your friends and families living rooms!

Create a playlist of songs and input into these free* editable Bingo Cards. You can ask your group to donate to take part, and then they can be sent their unique bingo card.

From here all you need to do is put your playlist on shuffle, and await a winner. You could also set a fancy dress theme for added fun!

* Up to 30 cards

It’s game time!

Text

Whether you're fire on FIFA or an Animal Crossing queen - host a marathon game on Twitch and ask for donations as you go!

Perhaps technology isn’t for you? Challenge yourself to a marathon board game session with your house hold and livestream for donations.
