A cracking selection of Easter fundraising ideas


It’s almost the long Easter weekend! Here are some of the ways charities around the country are using it to raise funds, and eggs.

Easter egg collections & donations

Easter Donation

A huge thanks to Morrisons, Wakefield Street Kitchen and Wakefield Community Crafters for coming together and donating over 230 Easter Eggs and lovely toys across our Children Departments

Easter eggs are always popular, and there are lots of collections going on around the country to enable those who might not get an egg otherwise to enjoy one. Lots of charities are asking people to donate money, rather than eggs, for Easter – in some cases so they can buy the Easter chocolate they need themselves, and in others, to enable them to buy or fund alternatives.

Alder Hey Charity is asking people to donate virtual Easter eggs by buying one for £2. This will ensure every child at the hospital receives a chocolate egg, or an alternative gift. Rainbows Hospice is asking people to donate the cost of an Easter egg, which it will put towards the services it provides the children, young people and their families, as 80% of those it cares for are unable to enjoy chocolate.

Thank you for all your kind donations to our #EasterAppeal
Instead of donating Easter eggs, we’re inviting our supporters to give money so we can fund toys to keep our children happy in hospital.

Bradford Children’s Hospital is also asking people to donate money instead of eggs, which it will put towards toys.

Easter egg hunts are always popular and can be a good way of raising some funds. Demelza for example is doing an Easter egg hunt this Friday, in Sittingbourne. There will also be other activities, stalls, and refreshments on offer. Entry is £5 per child, and £2 per adult.

They don’t have to involve actual chocolate: Queen Victoria Hospital Charity has a virtual Easter egg hunt on its site – find the eggs, and you can also choose one to make yours with a donation and a message.

A number of bike runs also take place at Easter to raise funds for charities. Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for example is holding its annual Easter Egg Run for bikers on Easter Sunday. It’s been running for four decades and sees hundreds of bikers ride through the streets of Glasgow in a mile-long convoy in support of its young patients. There is no registration fee but the charity asks every biker to make a suggested donation of £10.
