Raise Funds By Doing What You Do Best

When it comes to fundraising, everyone has a talent they can put to good use.

Maybe you’re a fantastic baker. Bake sales and coffee mornings are a terrific way of raising funds. Or why not host a bake-off challenge for colleagues and friends?

Baking not your thing? No problem. There’s a lot more ways to help and get involved with LifeCare.

Set Yourself A Challenge

Feeling fit? Why not get out in the great outdoors and grab these sponsorship ideas:

Cycling Take to the saddle and keep fit while you fundraise

Marathons and fun runs These are a real favourite here at LifeCare

Mountain-climbing Scotland offers almost 300 peaks to conquer

From abseiling to zip wiring, there are tons of challenges out there. So, what are you waiting for?

Get Involved With LifeCare By Getting Social…

At LifeCare, we believe that raising loads of funds should also be loads of fun. Here are some great ideas we’ve got to know:

Five-a-side tournaments Or your sport of choice from netball to golf, hockey to mini Olympics and more

Race nights Always a winner of an evening

Wine-tasting A sophisticated event that gets people together

…Or Do Your Own Thing Quietly

Away from the crowd, there are lots of other ways to get involved:

Healthy pledges Why not walk or cycle to school or work for a week?

Sponsored reads Terrific for kids

Sponsored silences A classic fundraiser that makes lots of cash – and very little noise

Have A Good Clear-Out To Help A Great Cause

Why not give clothes, toys, DVDs and books a new home with a jumble sale, auction or raffle? You can go even further by combining your sale with a coffee morning.


Volunteer With Us

Due to Coronavirus (Covid-19) we are not able to take on new volunteers right now but we would still love to hear from you if you would be keen to volunteer when things get back to normal.

In particular, we will be looking for a Café Host at CaféLife, our brilliant community café in Stockbridge. Why not give it a shot?

Make a direct difference when you lend us your time, skills and enthusiasm. We welcome all volunteers and if you are job seeking we would love to help you to build your confidence and add to your CV.
