Your own event

Organise your own event and do something amazing for patients in the hospitals we support.

Let us know what you’re planning and we can give you all the support you need!

From bake sales to quiz nights...

Whatever you’d like to do, we’ll be there to help you make your event the best it can be.

Whatever you choose, you’ll be doing something extraordinary for patients in the hospitals we support.

We’ve got a short guide to get you started with organising your own event.

Getting started

It all starts with an idea…

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide to organising your own event for Barts Charity. Our Fundraising Toolkit has full details, and we’re always here to help too.

  1. Where do you want your money to go? You can choose to fundraise for a specific ward or service within the hospitals we support, or generally – where we ensure the money goes to where it’s most needed. Either way, 100% goes directly to help the patients and staff in the hospitals.
  2. What event do you fancy? Do you already have an idea? If so, great – just let us know. If not, download our Fundraising Toolkit to get you started!
  3. Ready to go? Now it’s time to organise the event! Again, we’re here to support you with this should you need it.
  4. Who do you want to get involved? Spread the word! Create a JustGiving page, share links on social media, tell family and friends.
  5. Time to collect the money? With JustGiving, paying in the money takes care of itself – as long as you let us know on the page if your fundraising is going to a specific ward or service. For money collected elsewhere, there are a few ways to get it to us. See page 7 of our Toolkit or speak to us for details.
  6. What now? After all your hard work (and fun!) is over with, you can relax after a job well done, knowing you’ve made an incredible difference to patients’ lives.
