When you fundraise for Shannon Trust, you’re helping people who struggle to read and do numeracy make a positive difference to their lives through learning.

There are so many ways to fundraise! Explore below to find an idea to suit you, or come up with your own.

Games night: time to dig out the Monopoly and dust off the Cluedo! Dedicate an evening to playing all your favourite board games with all your favourite people.

Celebration giving: whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or wedding; why not ask for donations towards Shannon Trust instead of receiving gifts.

Bake off competition: everyone loves a slice of cake and a cup of tea, so get your family and friends together to see who can bake the most spectacular showstopper. 

Charity live stream: if you love gaming for good, or are part of a band and want to share your music, invite people to watch your live stream in exchange for a donation.
