Fundraising in the East

We aim to raise millions of pounds this year so that we can continue to support the most vulnerable children and young people across the East region.

There are many different ways you can get involved in fundraising:

home collection box
  • get a collection box for your spare change
  • get involved with the house to house collection
  • enter Barnardo’s prize draw
  • host a special fundraising local event
  • take unwanted clothes, books, toys and music to your local shop
  • register your pre-schoolers for The Big Toddle
  • sign up your children’s school for educational fundraising for Barnardo’s
  • put forward your employer for team building, payroll giving or volunteering
  • ask your college to hold a pub quiz, mega raid or fire walk
  • get sponsored to run, cycle, trek or any challenge
  • leave a legacy in your will
  • set up a tribute fund
  • sign up to Gift Aid
  • or you can donate online, by post or at your local post office.

Our fundraising promise

Barnardo’s is wholly committed to ensuring that we are completely open and transparent about our fundraising and spending.

Out of every £1 you raise 95p goes directly to helping disadvantaged children at our projects (excluding property and retail costs, which are both self-financing).

One of our key values is exercising responsible stewardship and we are always honest about where we get our money and the way in which it is spent.

Find out more about about where the money you raise goes.

Gift aid it

If you are a UK tax payer, your donations can raise even more money at no extra cost to yourself by signing up to Gift Aid. Ask at your local store for more details.
