2020-2021 Trócaire Annual ReportRead now
Host a quiz at a local pub or community centre in aidof Trócaire. Invite a local ‘famous face’ such as a shop owner, parish priest or musician to be the quiz master as a way to draw people to the quiz. Let people know how much you hope to raise and ask them to pay to participate. Advertise well in advance with our posters and make sure to spread the word online!
A really effective way to raise money at your events is by holding a raffle. Reach out to local businesses and service providers and tell them about how and why you are raising money. Ask them if they would like to support you by providing a prize that you can raffle off. It’s great to ask face to face but if you have a letter that you can drop into them, that’s great too. Call us and we can help you with the letter!
Nothing brings a community together like a big walk on a bright morning! Ask people to pay to participate to help you achieve your goal and you could always combine your walk with a coffee morning or a raffle! Some people walk during the night to add another level of challenge to the walk but whatever you chose to do, make sure to reach out to as many people in your locality as possible. When you plan the route, make sure to consider stop off points with a nice view or an interesting story to make the event as enjoyable as possible.
Attention all daredevils! Do something that you consider a challenge, whether you are cycling from Alaska to Argentina, swimming the English Channel or jumping out of a plane... do it for Trócaire, let us know and we’ll support you everystep of the way!
