Event, fair and fete hosting
Do you consider yourself the host with the most, or would like to organise a social occasion for your friends? Then why not make your get-together a charitable one. Dinner parties, quiz nights, at-home bake-offs and even knitting sessions can all be turned into fundraisers.
Or perhaps you run a business that exhibits at local fairs and fetes. We're always keen to hear from firms that could find space on their stall for one of our collection boxes or run a competition on our behalf. Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity attends various public events throughout the year.

Businesses will often elect to support a chosen charity throughout the year – and you can help us get picked as your employer's nominated choice. Is your work looking for a cause to support? Why not put our name forward.
Many supermarkets, including Waitrose and Asda, allow members of the public to nominate a local charity to be supported by the store for a month. If you'd like to help us in this way, fill in a nomination form next time you're in the aisles.
