Doing your own thing

You don't have to join an event to fundraise. We're always impressed by the inventive ideas you come up with to raise funds for Simon on the Streets.

There are so many ways that you can fundraise and encourage friends and family to dig deep to help those experiencing homelessness in West Yorkshire. The following ideas will hopefully provide you with some great inspiration!

Getting sponsored couldn't be more simple: simply set up your fundraising page on Just Giving!

A sponsored walk/swim/cycle

Inspired by the dangers those who are homeless in the heat face, Tim and his friends Sarah and Jim decided to challenge themselves to swim the Wast Water Lake to raise funds for Simon on the Streets. Their efforts raised over £1,000!

Weddings and Gifts

If you are celebrating your big day and would like to give back to those in need, you could ask guests to donate to Simon on the Streets rather than buying gifts.

Give something up

Rich at Get Park Fit shaved off his beard to raise funds for Simon on the Streets, raising £750! Getting sponsored to give something up or go without something is a great way to raise funds.
