Challenge yourself with exhilarating experiences and help the most vulnerable people in Ireland and around the world.

There are many ways you can raise money for the Irish Red Cross. Perhaps you already have an idea for your event?

Every event is different and each one is special because it is all about the people involved in getting together to make a difference! Decide on the best activity that appeals to you, your neighbours and who in your community will be donating to The Red Cross. Consider giving your event an imaginative theme too.

If you don’t have your event planned yet, here are some popular fundraising ideas:

Bag-packing – You could ask your local supermarket if you can pack bags for customers in return for a small donation

Coffee Morning or Bake Sale – You could hold one of these in your local community space

Comedy or Music Gig – If you know musicians or comedians who would like to take part, you could organise a gig. Many venues are happy to help organise a charity event. You could also hold a raffle at the event!

Hold a Table Quiz or Race Night – these are fun for everyone and can test your knowledge and guessing skills

Challenge Event – You could take part in a sporting event such as a sponsored walk, run or cycle. You could even run a marathon (not for the faint-hearted!)

Gala Dinner or lunch – Why not hold a fancy dinner or lunch for all your friends and donate the proceeds? Or you could host a barbecue in your garden!

Or why not take part in a mini-marathon or marathon while raising much-needed funds.
