Fundraising for Richard House is an incredibly rewarding experience. There are so many different ways to make your time count, simply choose something that works for you! Whatever you decide to do, we’ll support you every step of the way. To ensure you keep the "fun" in fundraising we have decided to compile all the best ideas and offer them up for you and your club, group or institute to use. Money making doesn't have to be hard. 

  • Bake sales - It may not be an original idea, but it sure is popular. Organise a cake morning and bring along delicious treats to sell to friends and family.
  • Doggy Wash - You can’t go wrong with a community dog wash. All you need is washing volunteers and have the day at a popular location or local event. Charge something small as more people will want to get involved and ‘wash’ the money pile up (get it?…)
  • Car Wash - Like the doggy wash, a car wash is another super popular money making idea. Volunteers and a popular location is all you need. The cost of setup will quickly be covered and then it’s pure donations and a lot of bubbles.
  • Car boot sale - Using a car park, that you can use for free through your own or associate’s grounds, hold a car boot sale. Charge entry to the car park per car and have donation buckets on hand to collect any spare change from the shoppers on the day.
  • Charity Golf Day - Tee-off and organise a competition in aid of Richard House 
  • Raffles - Ask for local shops and business to donate prizes and then sell tickets for a raffle. Throw in some bogus prizes to spice things up and even let people swap or steal prizes as part of the fun.
  • Plant sales - Do you have any green fingered gurus among your members? It is easy to nurture a few different species of flower, herb or vegetable plants to adulthood and then sell the plants in small pots at a community sale.
  • Charity walk or run - Is there a local fun run which your team can undertake for charity? Perhaps even a walk or hill climb, even a pub crawl can be approached as a fundraising challenge.
  • Make your own lunch - Do you frequently spend £5 a day on lunch in various cafes and sandwich bars? Bring your own lunches to work, and put the money saved towards your cause.
  • Movie nights - Offer an in-house movie night where the local hall or your grounds can be used. The movie could be outdoors for an even greater pull value. You’ll need a projector, sound system and a white wall (sheets can be used for great white wall finishes also).

  • Invite a speaker - Our speakers and awareness volunteers are a great way to inspire your members about the work of Richard House. We have a team of trained volunteers throughout the Newham, Tower Hamlets and the surrounding London Boroughs who carry out talks to groups both large and small (from a minimum of five people up to 100) and give you the information you need to know about prostate problems. We know that talks can truly make a difference!
