Fun ways to fundraise – new book for the Heart of the Community

A new book by a member of our congregation – A guide to Fun Ways to fundraise for your community, church or charity – has just been published to help raise money for the Heart of the Community project.

An early version of the guide by Penny Hallett (Allen) was made available to church members last year. This has been extended and updated and is now available from Amazon, priced £7.99. Royalties from the sale of the book are being donated to the Heart of the Community project.

The 176-page book is packed with over 200 great ideas for fundraising activities and events – as well as tips to guide you through the process and make it all worthwhile. It includes how to:

  • set objectives
  • choose a venue
  • find sponsors
  • publicise effectively, and
  • make sure your activity or event is safe and legal 

A big thank you to David McCann who provided the internal illustrations and to everyone at St Michael’s who contributed ideas and advice.

Whether you’re new to fundraising or an old hand looking for fresh ideas, this easy-to-read guide contains something for everyone. Why not find an idea that you like, make it your own, and go for it. 

You can order your copy here.

“This book crackles with ideas, sound advice and hot tips for making the vital task of fundraising both effective and fun. A top tool for all good causes.”

The Right Reverend Mike Hill, Bishop of Bristol
