Fundraising

Ideas to get you started...

How about using ‘15’ as a focus for your activities to help The 15 Appeal?  Maybe you could:

  • set aside £15 and see how you can add more over the course of 15 days… or 15 weeks…
  • try a sponsored activity for 15 hours (7am to 10pm is 15 hours…), or for 15 minutes… or 15 miles... (We have sponsor forms for you to use.)
  • fundraise in a team of 15
  • host a coffee morning for 15 people

We’re sure you can think of something!

Or maybe you’d like to be a Marmalade Friend?  In former days at the retreat house, the nuns and their friends would make and sell marmalade to raise funds. Maybe you could

  • fill a marmalade jar with spare change
  • have a marmalade party – eat toast and marmalade, or marmalade cake
  • try a ‘wear something orange’ day

We hope to run some Marmalade activities ourselves: look out for more information!
