Changing lives in your local community
If you’re looking for local charity fundraising ideas, you’ve come to the right place. At Rennie Grove, our dedicated community fundraising team can help you make a real difference in your local community.
Only 9% of our running costs are funded by the NHS. So we rely on the efforts and generosity of people like you to keep caring for patients at home, when every moment matters.
When you host your own event or fundraise for us in other ways, you’re making a massive difference to families in Bucks and Herts. Thanks to people like you – who host quizzes, dinners, coffee mornings and more – local families facing life-limiting illness get specialist care and support.
You can fundraise for us in so many ways, from hosting an event to having a collection box in your home, community hub or workplace.
Local charity fundraising ideas – join an event or organise your own
We have some lovely musical, in memory and seasonal events in your local community. Check our What’s On calendar for more details, as well as inspiration for your own event.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for an active challenge that gets you walking, running, swimming or cycling – try our challenge events. Choose from our Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge, Herts 10K, Tour de Rennie Grove, Open Water Swim Series and more. You can also tackle ultra-events like the London Marathon for Rennie Grove. Or get sponsored to take on a personal challenge way out of your comfort zone (think sky dive, wing walk, diving with sharks).
Too much? Go smaller scale (but no less challenging) and get sponsored to give up chocolate, alcohol or social media for a month! Contact your community team for ideas and support.
If none of that floats your boat – could hosting a social event like a coffee morning or bake sale be your cup of tea? Keen gardeners could hold a plant sale perhaps – or could you open up your garden for people to enjoy? Find out more about Rennie Grove’s Open Gardens scheme in Bucks and Herts and how to get involved.
Check out our A to Z of fundraising ideas. And don’t forget, we have balloons, banners and a friendly team always on hand to help and very happy to hear from you.
Local charity fundraising ideas for clubs and pubs
You might be a member of your local WI, Lion’s Club, Rotary, Round Table or U3A. Or perhaps you’re a regular at your local pub, unwinding after work or socialising at the weekend. Wherever you meet with like-minded people who enjoy a challenge, Rennie Grove has some local charity fundraising ideas for you.
- host an ever-popular pub quiz? Maybe theme it around the season or an upcoming event. We might be able to help with questions – get in touch!
- organise a raffle with prizes such as hampers? You could have physical tickets or use an online platform such as raffal.com. Contact us if you have any questions.
- donate a percentage from a certain food or drink choice to Rennie Grove? When you mention us on your menu, it helps raise our profile as well as all-important funds.
- place a collection tin on the bar for customers’ loose change? It’s surprising what a difference it can make. Change-makers – order your collection tin today!
- Host a coffee morning
- Organise a golf day
- Choose us as your charity of the year
