With your help, we can continue to make a difference.

Thank you for visiting this page and thinking of children who are having a difficult time.  With your help we can continue to be there when children and families need us most. 

Any help which you can give us will make a huge difference and means we can continue our vital work, supporting the education of children who have been disadvantaged by hardship and who are in need of our support.  Everything you give will help children and young people at a time of need.

Fundraising Ideas

Fundraising Ideas

There are so many ways in which you can raise funds to help us be there for children and young people who need our help.  Here are a few ideas to get you started on your fundraising journey.

  • Personal – Perhaps set yourself a target – chapters or books to read; sections of a language course to complete; number of gym visits, daily steps or kgs to lose; days without drinking alcohol, eating meat, smoking…; and put aside a small donation for each achievement, then pay in the funds you have raised via our “donate” button. 
  • Sponsorships – These can be walking, running, swimming, cycling… any distance in a local or national event – or just on your own.  Or shave a leg, or your head! Stop eating chocolate – for as many days as you can manage. 

Think of something that you’ve wanted to do but not quite been brave enough – then get sponsorship from your friends and family and use their support to help you achieve. 

  • Run your own event – invite friends for a coffee morning or for a picnic in the summer; get a group together to walk / swim / cycle / run a distance or achieve a target of your own for sponsorship.  
  • Selling at a stall – Use your skills to bake cakes, grow seedlings into plants, make birthday and other cards; or de-clutter your garage or your house and sell things that you never really liked or haven’t used for a long time.  You can sell at a seasonal fete or fair, a car boot sale, or any suitable local event. 

Legalities: There are laws governing raffles/tombolas, street and house-to-house collections and other such events. If you are in any doubt, please check with your local authority before organising. 


We would not be able to offer our help and support to so many children without the generous gifts and donations we receive.

Every gift that you give is hugely appreciated and will make a real and vital difference to children’s lives.  

There are many ways in which you can give, including a single donation, an annual donation or a monthly standing order.  Please contact us to request our donation form.  Other ways to give include:

Gifts in appreciation

If you or your family have benefitted from support from the Trust, you may wish to give a single or regular donation to show your appreciation of how we have helped.

Gifts in celebration 

If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding, civil partnership or other event, and instead of gifts you would like family and friends to make a donation to Royal Pinner, an easy way to do this is by setting up an online fundraising page.    

You can create a personalised fundraising page on Just Giving and keep your family and friends updated by uploading photos, sending emails, and creating links to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.  

Simply personalise a page to suit your occasion — it’s as easy as that.

Gifts in memory 

Please accept our sincere condolences if you have recently lost a family member or a friend, as we know this must be a difficult time for you. 

By donating to Royal Pinner, you are celebrating the life of your loved one and all the wonderful things that made them a special person.  Your Gift in Memory will directly benefit a child and help them through a difficult time.  This is a very special way to celebrate the life of a loved one, and you can be assured that all such gifts will go towards supporting children in need of our support. 

Here is how you can donate in someone’s memory: 

In Memory donation page 

At Just Giving you can set up a page to tell the story of the person whose life you are celebrating.  You can add a story, photographs and videos if you wish.  Your family and friends can donate securely to your page.  .  Your In Memory page could be used to mark birthdays, Christmas or other significant events in lieu of gifts, including those of your loved one.  Together you can make a real difference to benefit children who are in need. 

Donations instead of flowers 

Some families prefer to request donations to Royal Pinner in lieu of flowers at a funeral. An example of text which could be used in the Order of Service is “In celebration of the life of (name), the family welcomes donations to The Royal Pinner Educational Trust in lieu of flowers”.  Gift Aid forms can be obtained by contacting us.  We are very grateful for your support. 

Gifts in Wills 

Leaving a gift in your Will (leaving a legacy) to Royal Pinner is a special way to the help children we support, so when the time is right, please take a moment to do something amazing and leave a lasting legacy by including the Trust in your Will.  If you plan to leave a gift to us in your Will please let us know, as we would like to say thank you and keep in touch with you (if you would like us to).  There is no specific wording you need to use – you just need to ensure your Will is valid and include our charity registration number: 1128414.  We recommend that you contact a solicitor for impartial guidance and to ensure your Will is valid.
