Ideas for Fundraising

Oct 9, 2015 | News

Many people hear the Molly Olly Story and want to support us. The only problem is that they are not sure what to do or how to go about it. We are here to offer advice and help both in terms of coming up with the idea, advising on how to arrange the event or challenge, and provide the marketing support you need.

Here are a few ideas on how you can raise money to help the children with life threatening illnesses:

• By donating a product or service we could raffle or auction?
• Coffee mornings and cake sales
• Quiz nights
• Ladies’ pamper evenings
• Give up something for a week, month or more and donate the saving
• Dress down days at work
• Sponsored walks, runs, cycle rides, or other sporting challenges, even in the gym
• Arrange a party large or small
• Persuade your company or school to select Molly Olly’s Wishes as their preferred charity
• Check if your company has a match funding scheme as they will match the funds raised.
• Car boot sales, garage sales, jumble sales, table top sales
• Promise auction or slave auction
• Bag packing at your local supermarket
• Talent show or fashion show
• Ask Molly Olly’s Wishes for one of our special collection boxes
• Competitions and quizzes
• Fancy dress and mask making day

Its important that you chose something that you will enjoy.

Have fun and good luck.

Every donation, whatever size, helps a seriously unwell child


Current data suggests that 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every day, and that 1,900 children under the age of 14 in the UK are diagnosed each year.

More children are diagnosed with a range of other, often rare, conditions and illnesses that are also life-threatening.

Molly Ollys is committed to helping as many of these children and their families as possible, and works hard to raise the necessary funds to be able to help those who contact us.

You can help us do this by making a donation, joining in with our fundraising events, running your own events, using Give as You Live when you are shopping, and by leaving a legacy in your will. Please visit our How you can help page to find out more.
