We’ve just launched a new set of fundraising tools to help individuals and groups get started as Groundwork fundraisers. Young people do a lot of fundraising as part of our Groundwork Prince’s Trust community projects but we’re keen to get more people on board to support our valuable work in the local area.
Last year we were lucky to be approached by fundraiser Tawnia who was keen to support Groundwork and a community garden in Oldham. She raised over £400 by running the Edinburgh Marathon and all of this money went towards tools and equipment for the residents to use on the garden.
£10 pays for enough wildflower seed to cover 30 sq metres or a watering can.
£50 will buy a water butt and fittings to harvest rain water at a community garden.
£500 can provide a community orchard, making a neighbourhood greener, healthier – and fruitful.
If you would like to fundraise for a local Groundwork project but you’re not sure what activity you’d like to do check out our A to Z of fundraising ideas. We’ve also prepared some fundraising tips, poster template and sponsorship form to help you get started.
Within our new website you can create your own fundraising page where people can make donations online directly to your appeal. Find out how your money makes a difference at Groundwork – every penny really does count! Read about our impact in the local area and real-life stories from some of the thousands of people we support each year.
