11th December 2015

Hesitant about raising funds for your church or other good cause? Not sure what to do or how to get started? Help is at hand in the form of a new book -  A guide to Fun Ways to Fundraise for your community, church or charity (available from Amazon priced £7.99/Kindle £3.97). Written by a former journalist, Penny Hallett, the book is packed with 200+ ideas for activities and events as well as hot tips to guide you through the process and make it fun.

The 176-page guide explains how to:

  • set objectives
  • choose a venue
  • find sponsors
  • publicise effectively
  • and, importantly, make sure it’s safe and legal

Whether you’re a first-time fundraiser, or an old-hand looking for new ideas, this easy-to-read guide will show you how to boost the coffers of your church, charity or good cause. You might only raise a tenner or maybe you'll bring in thousands of pounds, but you will also raise awareness of your cause, get to know more people and recruit new supporters.

All royalties are being donated to a £5.5m church and community project by St Michael’s Church, Stoke Gifford, South Gloucestershire.
