Fundraising Tips

Page Title Divider

Social distancing can make some of our old fundraising techniques difficult, but our charity partners have created lots of ways you can still raise money for your Swimathon challenge.

Get your colleagues giggling – take dares from your co-workers! Will you wear a funny costume on a video call, work from your bath or serenade your team?


Team social – get together with your colleagues for a post work social through video chat and donate what extra you would have spent on drinks and snacks! You could also add the cost of your collective commutes.



Run a class – teach your friends something new, like online yoga, a language or cooking class. Or you could send recipes by email for a donation.


Give a gift – use your creativity for a good cause! Write poems, songs, craft something, or draw portraits to raise money. You can send these to people online or at a later date. 




Online pub quiz – become the quizmaster and raise a glass with your friends and family! You could host the quiz on video chat or send questions by email. Have a water or swimming based round. “Does a banana sink or float?”


Movie night – use the Netflix Party Chrome Extension to host a movie night for you and your friends, with everyone logging on from their sofa at home and donating the cost of a cinema ticket. Watch Jaws: just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water….
