Take on a virtual fundraising challenge

And help support your local children's hospice

Have fun, stay safe and support Francis House.

Why we need your help

Now, more than ever, Francis House needs your support.

Due to the Coronavirus crisis all of our summer fundraising events have been cancelled and we are facing a huge shortfall of £250,000.

Earlier in May we launched our Emergency Appeal and supporters have been generously donating and fundraising for the hospice in fantastically creative ways.

We’ve put this page together to give you some ideas to start a virtual fundraising challenge of your own.

Tell all your friends and family about your fundraising. Use the hashtag #FrancisHouseFriend and we’ll share it on social media.

Virtual fundraising ideas:

  • With the barbers closed could you brave the head shave? Perhaps you could do this live on social media.
  • Run a socially-distanced marathon or climb a virtual mountain!
  • Hold a virtual quiz on Zoom or join your knit and natter friends, download our Easter chick and bunny patterns and knit or crochet ready for next year’s Easter Chick Appeal.
  • Host a FIFA tournament amongst your friends.
  • Easter may be over but you can still join the hunt for our virtual chicks, enter the quiz and donate £2
  • Take on a 2.6 challenge – you could run for 26 minutes, go on a 2.6 mile bike ride, bake 26 cakes or anything you like involving 2.6 or 26!
