The first of a series of blogs about how potential volunteers can contribute their time and resources in aid of TCC.
Our biggest need is for fundraisers. And there are many ways you can do that, thanks to tried and trusted methods and now also to technology.
Here are The Tried and Trusted Methods (not an exhaustive list, feel free to suggest more!)
Stall at car boot sales
Stall at cat show
Sponsored walk, run, forfeit, etc.
Bungee jump/skydive/abseil, etc
Dress down day at work
Dog or cat sitting
Give up something e.g. alcohol, smoking, chocolate, crisps, television, games console, meat
Guess baby's due date, weight, etc
Busking (check local bylaws)
Musicians jam night
Cheese & wine night
Hairy stuff, shave your head, beard, wax your chest (men!!), dye your hair, remove all body hair!
Save coins in a jar, then sell tickets to guess how much is in it!
Themed dinner party
Knitting, craft making, quilting
Matched giving, ask your boss to match what you raise!
Fundraising: Part 2 will focus on how we can use technology in fundraising, some without costing anyone a penny!
