Together, we can transform lives. At home or in your workplace, you and your friends, family or colleagues can raise vital funds to help homeless, vulnerable and socially-excluded people in London.

The great thing about fundraising is that it’s flexible and anyone can get involved. From holding a raffle in your office to jumping out of a plane, there are hundreds of ways you can have a great time and raise money for a good cause. 

Why not use your community connections to make a difference?  If you’re a member of your school board or the PTA then you could organise a school disco, art show or drama performance and ask for donations. Member of the WI, a faith group or a book group? Ask your group to hold a ‘crafternoon’ or bake sale. 

Stuck for inspiration? Try some of our ideas:

The Tube challenge

Fancy doing something a little more physically challenging with friends? Pick a tube line and walk past every station on route and ask for sponsorship. The Victoria line (21kms), Bakerloo line (23kms) and Jubilee line (36kms) all take in iconic London landmarks as well. Or, if you’re feeling really energetic then the Central line is 54kms from start to finish!

‘Night In’

Many of our clients dream of having their own home. Why not open up yours for a ‘Night In’ with family and friends to raise money for SHP? 

Film night: Whether you go for the latest blockbuster or a cinematic classic, invite friends round and ask everyone to donate the cost of a cinema ticket and a bag of popcorn. You could even watch the film that changed the perception of homelessness, Ken Loach's historic 1966 drama Cathy Come Home.

Pamper night: Organise a night of relaxation, face masks, manicures and tasty treats. Raise money by asking guests to donate for treatments or you could even hold a raffle.

Games night: Dust off your treasured childhood favourite board games and challenge friends and family. Lose a round? Make an extra donation!

Your support really does help to make a difference to the lives of thousands of homeless and vulnerable people we work with. Together, we can help to make London a city in which everyone has a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life.
