£28 for 28 Days Challenge

Feb 01st - All Day

The Dr Kershaw's £28 for 28 days Challenge is a great way for teams to work together to raise money for the Hospice  so that we can continue to care for our patients and their families. Each team will be given £28 and 28 days to find innovative and interesting ways to raise as much money as possible.*Please note a minimum of £30 must be returned to the Hospice at the end of the 28 days.*
The Rules
All teams must only start fundraising on 1st February 2018 for 28 days and finish by 11.59pm on 28th Feb. There are no limits to your activities as long as it’s legal and does not compromise Health and Safety Regulations.

All fundraising donations must be paid into the hospice by 1st April. In order for us to select the winner. There will be an awards ceremony in May, where the team who raises the most money will be announced and prizes awarded for the most creative fundraising idea and best use of social media.

Can we arrange a raffle as part of our £28 for 28 days fundraising?
Yes - if the raffle is done in one day and is small scale, cloakroom style tickets can be used.

Can we sell items as part of our £28 for 28 fundraising?
Yes - using goods or items to raise funds is a good idea. Please note however, we recommend that you ask for a suggested donation rather than selling for a specific price as this will avoid any VAT implications on products you are giving in exchange for a donation.

Can we arrange our own public bucket collection for the………………£28 for 28 Challenge?
Yes of course – however please be aware that collecting in public areas will require a licence from your local council. Sometimes local supermarkets and shopping centres can give permission for collections in store so these can be good alternatives to street collections.

Can we use match funding as part of our total?
If your company runs a matched funding scheme, we would be extremely grateful for any donation received this way. However, to ensure that the challenges remain fair to all participants we will not be including any matched funding donations in totals which decide a winning company.

Can we claim gift aid on our donation and include this in our total?
If your donation is eligible for Gift Aid we would kindly request that you provide the accompanying information to allow us to make a claim. However, this cannot be counted in your final total. If you are thinking of applying for Gift Aid on any donations, please speak to us for more information to make sure you collect all the relevant details.
