Fundraise at work

Organise an event at your workplace to raise funds for Refuge. Get together with your colleagues and do something for a good cause! No matter how big or small your event, every ounce of support ensures we can help thousands of women and children fleeing domestic abuse.

Our friendly community fundraising team would love to have a chat with you about how you can support our vital work. Please do contact us by emailing

Hold a lunchtime pizza party

Organise a lunchtime pizza party (or whatever food you fancy!) and ask your colleagues to make a donation. You could always make extra funds by selling cakes!

Organise a tournament

Whether it’s a golf day, a sports day, a friendly football match or a netball competition – have fun and raise funds by donating a percentage of ticket sales to Refuge. You could boost your fundraising total by asking people to enter a sweepstake to predict the winner.

Bake sale

Simple, yet a classic! Encourage members to bring along tasty treats to purchase during your next meeting. You could even put a collection box on your snack table at work to collect any spare change.

Virtual challenge

Why not set a challenge as a group, for example, walking the equivalent distance from London to Paris as a group? This is a great way to build team morale, get fit, and fundraise for Refuge.

Friendly competition

You could give each member of the group a small amount of money, and challenge them to raise as much money as they can. For example, they could use the money to buy a crochet kit, then sell the creation, or use it to buy ingredients to make and sell a cake. It encourages people to get creative!


You could organise a sweepstake for popular TV shows and challenges, such as Wimbledon, Grand National, Strictly Come Dancing, Bake Off, the list is endless!
