From cake sales to long-distance treks, organising your own fundraising event is not only an amazing way to raise money for FCN, but it can also be very rewarding and great fun for you, your friends and your family.
Our head office team are on hand to help you with anything you need for your fundraising event. There are so many things you can do:
Individual / Team
Take on a challenge
Alone or as a team, on foot, on wheels, on water or over mountains. Whatever your efforts, you will be supporting your farming community.
Get local businesses to donate some amazing prizes and stage a charity auction.
Get your friends and family involved, find a venue, pick a theme and let the fun begin!
Cake sale / tea party
Show off your kitchen skills or enlist friends and family for an afternoon of treats.
Share your fundraising stories
We are very fortunate that so many people in farming, agriculture and allied industries take the time to support the work of our charity.
From sky dives to mountain climbing, to marathons and all manner of other feats of endurance, we are very grateful for everyone’s support.
We encourage people to share stories and posts about your fundraising efforts on social media – shout loud and proud about the cool, quirky and sociable things you’re doing to raise awareness of FCN and to fly the flag of British agriculture.
This post by Olivia Meredith and Caryss Pickavance is a real showcase of how rewarding fundraisers can be – building community, friendship and supporting our wellbeing and physical health.
Thank you to everyone who supports the work of FCN.
Churches & faith groups
Use your harvest festival to raise money for FCN. Organise a supper and bring everyone together to celebrate harvest.
Take a long walk through the beautiful British countryside. Support your farming community by organising a Rogation Ramble.
Arrange for a vintage plough to be present at your Plough Sunday celebrations and help support farmers for the year ahead.
Celebrate the ripening of the first fruits by organising a collection for the work of our volunteers.
To discuss your fundraising ideas and for further support, please contact email@example.com or call 01788 510866.
Collection tins & buckets
Placing counter collection boxes on behalf of FCN not only provides our charity with a valuable stream of income, but also an opportunity to raise awareness of our organisation and the work we do within the farming community.
If you are a church or local business and would like to display a collection tin or bucket, please contact the FCN head office on 01788 510866, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
