In spite of current guidelines, it is still possible to socialise through the wonders of modern technology, whilst raising invaluable funds for our patients and their loved ones.
Simply use the likes of Skype, Zoom, Facetime, or other video conferencing apps to get everyone together. Please see some steps below as a guide to hosting the perfect party, whilst raising invaluable funds.
- As the host of the dinner party, firstly set up your online fundraising page through Justgiving – you can include a suitable photo, as well as an itinerary for the evening. You could include some menu options, so you are all enjoying the same food. You can encourage friends and loved ones to make a donation in line with what they might have spent on bringing a bottle of wine or pudding round to a traditional party!
- Alongside enjoying the food and company, you can encourage additional donations through organising games and activities. You could dress to impress, or even embrace fancy dress. You can organise party games or perhaps host a quiz and ask for further donations in return for participation.
- There are endless ways to be creative with your dinner fundraiser. Why not make it a weekly occasion, or take turns with your friends and family to host the perfect virtual night.
