Planning your own fundraiser for The Felix Project? There are loads of ways that you can raise funds, whether it’s with friends and family, at work or a personal challenge. Here are our top tips for getting started.
1. Decide on your fundraiser
The first hurdle is to decide what your fundraiser is going to be. If you want it to be food related, you could host a supper club, cooking class or a good old-fashioned cake sale. Fancy something more social? How about a pub quiz, gig evening or film night. If you’re the adventurous type, why not go rogue with a skydive, head shave or Land’s End to John O’Groats style challenge.
2. Where and when
Make a plan for when and where your fundraiser is going to happen. If you need a venue, try to get that organised first – ask local pubs, businesses and community centres if they would host you. Try to pick a popular place with lots of footfall, and somewhere where you can keep costs to a minimum.
3. Tell the world
Once you know what you’re doing to raise funds for The Felix Project, set up your fundraising page and share it far and wide, using your networks to promote what you’re doing.
4. Get in touch

The Felix Project and FareShare have agreed in principle a move that will see Felix take over the running of FareShare’s London operation and join the FareShare Network.
London’s three biggest food redistribution charities partner to provide an emergency response service for the capital.
We get to spend some more time together, but doing something different that breaks with our routine -and certainly better than just sitting watching telly all the time!
