Virtual Fundraising

The outbreak of coronavirus is affecting all our lives in lots of different ways. If your fundraising plans have been postponed or cancelled, we’ve put together a selection of ideas for virtual fundraising that you can do from home instead - and some you can do at no cost to you! Thank you for supporting NRAS at this difficult time.

Virtual pub quiz

Connect with others - Use Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangouts to hold a virtual pub quiz. Set up a JustGiving page and ask your guests to make a donation to take part. https://www.justgiving.com/nras

Ebay your clutter away

Now is a good opportunity to declutter, and working through your possessions is a chance to remember memories associated with them. Sell your clutter on Ebay and you can choose to give a % donation to NRAS! https://charity.ebay.co.uk/

Online tutorials

Learning something new has been strongly associated with higher levels of wellbeing. Share your skills with others through online tutorials. You could do cooking, a foreign language or flower arranging. Ask for a donation in exchange for sharing your skills, which can be donated on your JustGiving page. Or does your friend have a skill that you have always wanted to learn? Ask them to set one up for you.

Set up a Facebook Fundraising page

Whether it's your birthday or if you're looking to create better awareness of RA/JIA why not create a Facebook Fundraiser! NRAS receives 100% of all donations made via Facebook and we even have step by step guide: https://www.nras.org.uk/facebook-fundraising

Make a donation by simply doing your shopping!
