Support us Fundraise Fundraising ideas Fundraising ideas First of all, we would like to thank you for considering fundraising for the vital work of Street Connect. We are looking to make real inroads into local communities and seeing lives being completely transformed in this year ahead. Will you help us get there? Addiction, homelessness, poverty, loneliness and social isolation, mental health, crime and a variety of other life controlling issues halt people from progressing positively in their lives. By raising funds for our vital work, you can partner with us in seeing people overcoming and/or progressing on to becoming more productive members of society once again. You could also have some fun along the way! You have found your way to our fundraising ideas page so are probably looking for some inspiration. What could you do? There are a number of things you could consider: Previous events: If you are looking for a more extreme challenge then we have previously run such events as bungee jumps (see pictured), climbing Ben Nevis and street sleepouts. See 2019 events list. Individuals have completed skydives, triathlons, half marathons, 10K runs, tough mudders, kiltwalks etc. More relaxed events could include doing a birthday fundraiser on facebook for us, sponsored silences, or even shaving your head! Organised events such as Christmas fayre, coffee morning, bake sale etc. You could consider having a fundraiser for us at your workplace or church? “The free fall was both exciting and terrifying. The feeling of falling and nothing being able to stop you from danger. Until the moment of rescue, the deployment of the parachute. This to me is what ministries like Street Connect can offer. It can offer to those whose lives are falling away from them a parachute of hope that is based in the love of God.” Steve, Skydive Could you fundraise for us?

Amazon Smile is a simple and automatic way of supporting the work of Street Connect every time you shop via Amazon Smile. You can set your page up here. Clothes – We no longer accept donations of second-hand clothing due to a lack of storage, as people were being so kind - we were getting a lot of clothing donated. One option could be to take your old clothes to a cash-for-clothes unit and any money raised can be donated to our work. Gift in your will – One great way of supporting our work is to leave us a gift in your will. Find out more by visiting our legacies page.
