We rely on generous support from our friends in the UK to resource the incredible work our overseas partners do in serving marginalised children. So fundraising is vital. But it can be a lot of fun too.

Whenever we have a fundraising event planned, we will post information about it here. In the meantime, here are some ideas for fundraisers you could organise in your own community.

  1. Zoom quiz: Invite a whole gang of people and either charge a small entry fee or invite donations to BCT. We can provide a short film to explain a little about who we are and what we do.
  2. Concert: Ask one or two talented locals to give a short performance. You could either do this live (with a large enough area and appropriate social distancing) or over Zoom. Again, we can provide a short BCT film to show as part of the event.
  3. Sponsored walk: Why not get a team together and arrange a virtual relay? For example, a team of 10 people, walking 10 miles each, could cover 100 miles in just over 24 hours!
  4. Sponsored climb: Similarly, a team of you could take on the height of Ben Nevis (or even Everest!) by climbing your stairs. In case you're wondering, Ben Nevis is 1,345 metres high and Everest is 8,848 metres. So that's quite a few times up and down your stairs!
  5. Virtual dinner party: Cook a nice meal or order a takeaway and chat to a group of friends over Zoom. Show the BCT film before dessert, and invite donations.
  6. Virtual coffee morning: For an easier event, have coffee and pastries instead of a full meal.
  7. A mile of coins: A mile is 1,609.34 metres or 160,934cm. A 1p piece is 2cm in diameter. So if you were to form a mile from 1p coins, it would add up to £804.67! Get your whole church involved and see how you get on.
  8. Video games marathon: One for your church's younger members. Many games can be played online these days, so arrange a tournament with a small fee for entry.

If you're planning to raise money for BCT, please contact us to let us know. We'd love to hear more about it and to do whatever we can to support you in your efforts.
