Do your own thing

The best part about fundraising for Refuge is that you can do what you love, while supporting women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse.

Whether you choose to host a bake sale or get creative with hair dye – know that we will be on-hand throughout to help you raise vital funds! Feel free to drop us an email at

Organise an event

From barbecues and pub quizzes to comedy shows and classic coffee mornings – have fun and raise funds at the same time!

Virtual fundraising challenges

The Covid-19 pandemic taught us that we can do pretty much anything remotely – why not set yourself a challenge to walk or run a certain distance over a month? You can do this on your own, or with a group of friends.

Celebration fundraising

Approaching a big birthday, or want to do something charitable during the festive season? Consider asking for donations to Refuge instead of presents.

Take on a personal challenge

You can get sponsored for all sorts of things – like giving something up (like chocolate and/or wine!) or taking something on (dyeing your hair pink!). If you choose to give something up, you could donate the money you have saved to Refuge. You could even participate in our 30 days of crochet fundraising challenge – you can find more information here.
