Here we are, already at the end of January 2024 and it’s been a busy start to the year, helping women and children across NE Lincs and we need your help more than ever.

If you are wondering how you can help and get involved in fundraising for our charity, we’ve highlighted 7 easy ways you can fundraise, to enable us to continue to do the work we do.

So here are 7 easy ways anyone can get involved and help us by raising money, either individually or as a business.

Club 400

Join our Club 400 LotteryThere are now over 400 members in our Club 400 Lottery scheme, where members pay £1 per month, directly to us by standing order and receive a dedicated number included in our Club 400 Lottery. 

At the end of every month, a refuge child draws out 3 lucky, winning numbers, who split half the money taken for that month and the other half goes to our Refuge Children’s Service.

You can have as many numbers as you like each month!

Collection Tubs

Can you host a collection tubCould you or someone you know, have a collection tub in your office or on your shop counter to help raise money for domestic abuse victims/survivors?

Every penny really does help and it all mounts up at the end of the year.

If you would like a tub dropped off please give us a call or email manager@womensaidnel.org.

Hosting an event

Sponsored walkIf you would like to organise an event to raise funds for us, we’d love to hear from you.

Some examples of things people have done in the past are holding a coffee morning, a garden party, a charity pub quiz, name cards at work and fundraising evenings, as well sponsored events like walks, runs, slims and anything else you can think of.

This is a great way to involve other people and raise awareness of domestic abuse in the wider community and we are so grateful for the funds people raise this way.

Please email manager@womensaidnel.org or call us if you can help or have a fundraising idea.

Donating Your Time - Volunteering

✅ General shop work
✅ Books – sorting & display
✅ Sorters – with an eye for good quality donations, to keep the shop stocked with the best items possible
✅ Jewellery sorting & display
✅ Till work
✅ Window displays & Visual Merchandising
✅ Shoes & Handbags sorting & display
✅ CDs, DVDs & Electronic Games – sorting & display
✅ Albums & LPs sorting
✅ Ironing – This role is very flexible for those people who cannot commit to set shifts or set days
✅ Cleaner – We need cleaners to help us for an hour, a couple of mornings per week, before the shop opens.

If you’d like to join our incredible team of volunteers, just drop us a message or email support@womensaidnel.org

Corporate Partnership

Corporate PartnershipPartnering with a charity is one of the best things you can do for your business. 

As well as being a great way to demonstrate your philanthropic values, the whole notion of ‘giving back’ is becoming more and more a factor for employees when selecting a place to work.

Whether you’re a sole trader or large corporate, the value to you as a business, connecting with a local charity, is a great way to demonstrate your business ethos and values.
