Fundraising ideas


We know it can be difficult to find an idea of where to start, so we thought we would share a few of ours below. We have even included some great ways you can continue to support ELF by fundraising from home!

Sponsored distance

Sponsored distance

Walk, run, swim, cycle or anything else you can imagine to reach a set distance and get others to sponsor you. Perhaps you want to do it on your own or as a team or with your colleagues.


Go car free

Do you need to drive to where you are going? Can you give up your car for a day, a week or even longer?

The more difficult it is, the more money you might raise.

Try and find an alternative mode of transport and get your friends and family to sponsor you.

Share your journey on social media #BreatheCleanAir

ELF wants to encourage you to give up smoking or vaping.

Perhaps raising money for ELF will provide you that encouragement to #GoSmokeFree.

Use your lungs to share some joy. Challenge yourself as an individual or create a band to sing for a specified amount of time. You could share some joy with your friends by singing a few songs to them. Perhaps you have that special someone to serenade. Whatever you want to incorporate into your sing-a-thon is up to you but remember to take some videos or pictures and pop them onto social media with #ELFsingalong.
