Every £1 you raise for us contributes to 4 meals for vulnerable people
Fundraising for FareShare Cymru helps us to continue redistributing quality food to vulnerable people across Wales. Whatever your skills, interests or sporting passions there is a fundraising option for you!
General Fundraising ideas
We have lots of ideas and suggestions to help you fundraise for FareShare Cymru: from simple suggestions to involving your friends or colleagues, through to more adventurous activities and challenges such as swimming, running or cycling. Here are a few of our suggestions:
Take on a challenge
Whether running, swimming or cycling is your thing, taking on a challenge can boost your fitness, improve mental health and give you a goal to work towards. Fundraising for FareShare Cymru can have an incredible impact as every £1 = 4 meals! Choose your challenge, whether it’s a marathon, a mud run or a larger-scale adventure!
Organise an event
Throw a bash to raise some cash. Whatever you’re into, there are plenty of ways to get some friends together and raise some money to support our work. Be creative – host a ‘food waste’ themed dinner party, a cocktail evening, or a summer picnic. You could also host a quiz for those with a competitive streak, a bake sale or a sports tournament!
Give it up
Whether it’s alcohol, chocolate, coffee or crisps – the savings you can make on giving up your ‘treats’ for a month or two can really add up. The price of a medium latte can provide up to 10 meals for vulnerable and hungry people in the UK. Try giving it up for FareShare Cymru and donating the money you save to fight hunger and food waste.
Get rid of your clutter
Are you in need of a clear out? You can do this while supporting us at the same time! Donate your old books/CDs/DVDs via the Ziffit app, search for ‘FareShare Cymru’ at checkout and the value of your items will be donated to us. You can then post items or have them collected for FREE.

School fundraising ideas
If you are a school teacher, a learning support assistant, parent or pupil, there are many ways for you to mobilise the school population, have some fun – and help to raise vital funds for FareShare Cymru.
Tried, tested and loved by pupils everywhere – try a non-uniform day with pupils paying £1 for the privilege of wearing their own togs for the day. Why not make teachers dress in uniform to really switch things around!
Instead of collecting tins, hold an assembly about how much good food from every harvest goes to waste, while millions of people in the UK go hungry. If every child brings £1 to donate to FareShare Cymru, they can provide 4 meals for people in need.
D-I-S-C-O! Choose a theme, round up some volunteers and sell tickets to an all-years school disco. Sell refreshments to boost the fundraising effort.
