Fundraising

Support through fundraising is key to enabling Open Hands to continue to make a difference in the lives of those in need in Leicester, and there are so many ways that you can get involved and make a difference!

We invite you to join us in fundraising for Open Hands as a whole and/or specifically for our new warehouse which opens in Autumn 2021. There have been so many different creative ways that people have fundraised for us over the last 10 years, as individuals, groups and organisations – we can’t wait to see the new ideas going forward! Perhaps you could host a bake sale using our tea party fundraising pack, do a sponsored walk or cycle, or if these options don’t suit you look through our fundraising A-Z for inspiration.

So, how do I get started you ask? Well….

  1. Plan Your Fundraising. No matter which way you choose to fundraise it’s time to start planning!
  2. Start Fundraising. Make sure your hard work counts. If your fundraising for our new warehouse set up a just giving page through our Warehouse Appeal, or if your efforts are for the charity in general head to our main Just Giving page. Whichever you choose, share it with others and see how much you can raise!
  3. Share Your Photos. Take a photo of you and/or your group completing your fundraising and share it with us on social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) @OpenHandsLeics so that we can share it with others and cheer you on!
  4. Celebrate! It’s time to take a deep breath and pat yourself on the back. A thank you is coming your way!

No matter what you do, you can be rest assured that every penny raised will be invested directly into the work of Open Hands in order to help those most in need – thank you in advance!
