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.
#Run1000, is calling on people to sign up to be part of one of five teams – England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Rest of the World.
- The competition, which will take place from 1st to 31st January 2021, will see each team run 1000 miles with the nation that reaches the milestone first, announced the winner. A team captain will lead each nation, and a private Strava group will record the collective running distance. It costs £20 to take part.
- It’s not about the speed or the distance, it’s about the taking part no matter how little the distance is.
- Each of the 5 teams has a chosen charity and Team England have chosen FCN.
