If you’re looking for ideas or inspiration, how about:
Fundraise on Facebook
- Set up a birthday fundraiser. It's difficult for people to give cards and presents at the moment so a birthday fundraiser is a lovely way to celebrate and raise funds at the same time.
- You could also add a donate button to a Facebook post encouraging your friends and family to donate what would normally have been spent on going to the cinema, theatre, restaurant etc to help us to deliver our services in these challenging times.
