How to Fundraise

We always welcome new Friends.

If you feel inspired to make a real difference to the future of these wonderful children – we would dearly love your support.

Every contribution helps – no matter how small.

You can help in so many ways

Have a great idea? Let’s do it!

Our personal favourite Online Fundraiser is BT MyDonate this is because they take no fee and this helps us stick to our promise of 100% of the money raised going to the charity!

However, feel free to raise money with other fundraisers such as JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving or your own favourite.

If you need specific help to help your idea get off the ground – please fill out the form opposite, and we will support you in any way we can.

Your time and effort are very greatly appreciated.

Fundraising ideas

Need some inspiration?

Choose one of these ideas or create your own campaign.

Go on a charity walk

From your doorstep to the other side of the world – you decide how far and for how much.

Or get your trainers on and run it!

Whether your style is a 5k or a Marathon. Or swim it, or cycle it.

Tick one off your bucket list

Want to climb Machu Picchu or loose two stone in weight? – turn it into a fundraiser.

Get your Mary Berry on

Set up a cake baking stall. We need just £200 to feed the whole school for a month!

Wedding or birthday donations

If you don’t need toasters or socks, ask for donations and see how much you can raise.

Host a charity dinner

Or raffle, or party, or screening of your favourite film for your friends.

Could you be a corporate sponsor?

Through our efforts and that of our friends and supporters, we have achieved a great deal, but we have now reached the point where we are actively looking for corporate sponsors to help take the project to the next level.

The Ray of Hope school is such a beautiful example of how education can be a guiding light to young children and give hope to a whole community.

Please get in touch if you are interested in helping us further.
