We are in urgent need of funds to support the running costs of our respite centre, and also the general day-to-day running of the charity.
We would love to hear from you if you can raise funds for Willows Lull. Whether holding a quiz at your local pub or organising a cake sale at work, your support could make a real difference.
Organise your own event or activity
Fundraising is great fun and incredibly rewarding. With some enthusiasm and a few willing helpers, you can do something amazing and raise money to help our children in your community. It’s always best to choose something you enjoy doing, and work out how you can turn your hobby or passion into a money-making idea!
There is no end to the list of events and activities you can get sponsored to take part in! Why not choose something you've always wanted to do?
Get in touch for a sponsorship form and download our sponsorship tips to help make the most from your activity. You can set up your own fundraising page for Willows Lull on www.justgiving.com.
Become a ‘Friend of Willows Lull
We are looking for volunteer members to join a “Friends of WillowLull” group, to run income-generating activities throughout the year. Members will need to commit to meeting monthly and helping to plan activities and events that might include dinners, open gardens, fairs, quizzes or balls. This is a wonderful opportunity to have fun with new friends, and do something rewarding for a very worthwhile local cause.
Nominate our cause
You can nominate Willows Lull as your chosen charity at school, work, church or at your sports or social group too. We are appealing to golf, bowls and tennis clubs, to name but a few, to think of us next time they select their charity of the year or undertake a fundraising activity.
Most supermarkets hold a community budget for local causes, and shoppers can nominate the charity they wish to benefit. Do ask next time you are doing your weekly shop, and put Willows Lull forward!
Represent Willows Lull at a local event
We would love to hear from supporters willing to attend local events such as fetes and fairs on our behalf. Perhaps with some friends you might like to hold a tombola, raffle or fundraising game to generate not only funds but also awareness of our cause and what we do. Most events will welcome a charity stand at no cost, and we can supply banners, buckets and t-shirts.
Donations in lieu of presents
If you're celebrating a birthday, wedding or anniversary you might like to consider asking friends and family to make a donation to Willows Lull instead of buying a present.
Donations in memory
Giving in memory of a loved one is a very special way to remember someone close to you. Not only will you be helping us continue caring for local children, it will help you look towards the future and do something positive in their honour. We are grateful to anyone wishing to give to Willows Lull in this way.
Collect for Willows Lull
We encourage supporters to collect for Willows Lull, and can help to arrange a supermarket or street collection near you. We would love to hear from individuals or groups of people wishing to collect, and can supply tins, buckets and t-shirts.
We would love to raise awareness of our charity within local schools and colleges. Would your school support Willows Lull?
