Fundraising Ideas

Need some inspiration in your virtual fundraising for Perennial?

With most of us self-isolating or social distancing, we have come up with a list of ideas that you can do at home, why not try one of our ideas below…



  • Virtual Bingo! Housey Housey! There are online Bingo cards which you can download, ask friends and family to donate for a card to take part. Get everyone online and BINGO what a great fundraiser you have

  • Virtual coffee morning, donate the value of a weeks worth of your daily cup of coffee to Perennial

  • Virtual Dinner Party. As dining out is not possible right now so why not host a virtual dinner party instead and ask friends/family to donate the funds they would normally spend on going out to charity. Get your meal ready, agree a mutually convenient time to log on and you can enjoy dinner in the company of friends/family

  • Exercise bike marathon! Get sponsored to do a marathon cycle from the comfort of your own home

  • #Head Shave! Get friends & family to sponsor you to shave your head, use the time we are in self-isolation to grow your locks and lop them off in the name of Perennial

  • Plant sale! Why not leave any excess plants at the end of your driveway with a bit of information about Perennial and an honesty box for donations!

  • Sponsored walk/run in your garden. You could even film a time lapse video of you circling the backyard! You could do a marathon in an afternoon or stretch it out over a month!

  • Virtual tea Party with friends! Have a natter, share gardening tips and successes. While we are in ‘lockdown’ keeping in contact with others is essential to our wellbeing. Why not host an online Tea party and donate what you would have spent in a café to Perennial!
