Hosting your own event is a great way to turn your favourite passion or greatest skill into something that can help and woman escape violence.
From the classic bake sale to hosting a pub quiz to performing in a drag show, there’s so many ways you and your friends can help support the women and children of London. Every £ you raise can go towards helping secure safer futures for women and girls.
Our dedicated fundraising team are here to support you every step of the way. We can provide leaflets and other collateral, social media event promotion, fundraising kits, event speakers and training experts…whatever you need to help make your fundraiser a huge success! Contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know about your fantastic ideas and ask any questions.
Setting up a Fundraising Page
We recommend using JustGiving to collect your donations quickly and easily online. Simply select “Solace Women’s Aid” as your beneficiary charity and the funds will go directly to us…no tricky admin needed. Then create your fundraising page detailing your event, why you chose to raise money for us and any pictures/videos you have. You can also post updates and connect your page to your Strava or Twitch profile.
Sell For Solace
We all have those clothes that stay tucked away at the back of the drawers, never to see the light of day. Or that video game that you’ve been keeping just in case you ever buy that console again. If you’re looking to do a clean out of your loved but unused things, you can sell your items on sites like Thrift + or eBay, and put the money towards supporting Solace’s services. Choose anywhere from 10% to 100% of the sale price to go to Solace. Check out these easy ways to sell for Solace!
Simply order a free Thrift + bag on their website, fill it with your donated items and send back it back for Thrift + to work their magic and sell your items. You can choose for your profits to go either 100% to Solace, 100% in Thrift + credits, or 50/50 between your Thrift + credits and our services. Help support sustainable fashion and our life-saving services, all in one bag.
Just like you would with any other sale on eBay, login, list your item and then at the bottom, right after listing preferences, you can choose to donate a portion of the sale. Select your chosen percentage and type in “Solace Women’s Aid” in the “Donate to” search box. Once your item has been sold, your donation will automatically go towards supporting the women and children in our services.
