Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on our fundraising activity, resulting in a significant loss of income for the charity. However, we have been inspired by the incredible ingenuity of our amazing supporters who have taken things online in a bid to ensure our services can continue. If you've thought about holding a virtual event but aren't entirely sure where to start then please read on...
Virtual fundraising is a great way to raise funds for Tŷ Hafan whilst the current lockdown and social distancing measures are in place in Wales and across the UK. Virtual fundraising involves setting up an online fundraising page to collect donations for a challenge, or online event. It is really that simple!
Like any good fundraising event, it’s all in the planning. All you need to get started is a little imagination and you’ll be well on your way to virtual fundraising success (from a safe distance of course!)
