Fundraise from home

Life is a bit different at the moment but the need for vulnerable children in Scotland to have a safe and secure place to live and learn is more important now than ever. Please help us continue to support our children and invest in their future by fundraising at home.

Be an #AtHomeHero

You can continue to support our work and the Learning for Life Appeal from home. From virtual runs to fun challenges with your friends, family and colleagues – there are lots of ways to get involved.

It doesn’t matter how much you raise, every penny raised really does make a huge difference.

Get started today

Choose your idea and then set up an online fundraising page via Justgiving to help make donating to Harmeny quick and easy for your family, colleagues and friends. We’re here to support you if you want any help.

We hope our ideas will give you something fun to focus on while you #StaySafe

Get your kilt on at the new virtual Kiltwalk

You can take on any Kiltwalk Inspired challenge you wish – go for a walk, a cycle, jump on a trampoline, or even a family scavenger hunt! Raise funds for Harmeny Education Trust and everything you raise will receive a 50% top up from The Hunter Foundation. Find out more.

Set a group or family challenge

Pick a theme or activity and challenge your friends and family or your colleagues to complete it and make a donation. There are some great mass participation virtual challenges going round including the #twopointsixchallenge organised by Justgiving – perfect for ideas for things to do.

Get quizzing with your friends or colleagues

If you have a bit of spare time in isolation you could write up your own quiz. Invite friends and family to join in via Skype, Zoom or House Party and ask for a small donation to play.

Not sure where to start?

Contact us to receive a quiz pack including How to tips and a set of questions and answers.

Donate your commute

Many of us are now working from home and do not need to travel to work. Why not donate a proportion of what you would have spent on your commute to us? This is a great way to get your colleagues involved too just like Harmeny Hero, Gordon.

Take part in a virtual run

Most major running events are now offering the chance to take part in virtual versions of their events. Register with your local run or go for a biggie like the Edinburgh marathon and you’ll receive training support plus a finisher t-shirt and medal. Get your friends and family to cheer you along your local route just like Pete who ran the Edinburgh Marathon virtually in 2020.

We’re here to support you

Whatever you want to do we’re here to help you get set up. We’d love to see your pictures and don’t forget to tag @HarmenyEd on Twitter or Facebook and we’ll share your fundraising fun!
