You can create online campaign to share your fundraising event or activity, and encourage your friends and family to support you reach your goal.

You can visit GoFundraise, set up your profile (you can log in with your Facebook account) and collect donations for us online. Or just collect the money from your supporters and pay it in to our bank account.

Make sure you let us know if you’re planning on fundraising for us, so we can help promote your idea too. Please fill out this form here, and contact Phillip Harris by email, or call 04 381 0191.

Need some ideas? There are heaps of different things you could do to fundraise for us:

  • Getting active – You could friends and family together and hold a fun ride event, set yourself a challenge with a bike ride, walk, or swim, do something extreme like abseiling or bungee jumping, or create your own inspired adventure and support the Hospice at the same time.
  • Doing your thing/Your challenge – make it up – do whatever you like, and fundraise for us at the same time.
  • Going without something – Give something up for ‘X’ number of days and fundraise for us at the same time.
  • In celebration – set up a donation page and ask your friends and to make a donation for your Christmas, birthday, wedding or anniversary gift.
  • In memory – raising money in honour of a lost loved one.
