Selling / buying for Woman’s Trust

Woman's Trust - support - sponsored donations

Have a clearout and raise money by selling things you no longer need on eBay., just choose to donate a percentage of your profits directly to us.

Or use an online giving site when you are shopping like Give as you Live. Every time you buy something through the site, they will donate a percentage of your payment to Woman’s Trust – at no extra cost to you!

Or shop through our dedicated Everyclick site, so we get a donation from the purchase, as well as all searches and eBay activity made.

Baking and Get Togethers

Calling all bakers and masterchefs- get your colleagues to rustle up some delectable delights – and have a judging competition to crown the bake-off champion.

Or are you part of a group like a WI or book club? Why not choose Woman’s Trust as your Christmas charity or Charity of the Year?

Coffee or commuting savings

Arrange a team coffee round and donate your week’s coffee money. If you’re saving on your commute, consider pooling the money together to donate to Woman’s Trust

Have a Dress Up Friday (for a change!) or a collection jar for those never-ending Zoom meetings – pay in every time there’s an unexpected interruption or someone loses their internet connection.

Keeping active

Keeping moving and giving yourself regular breaks is a good way to maintain your physical health, your mental health, and your attention span.

Laura and Holly’s virtual challenge

Some people took the lockdown in their stride…literally.

Laura and Holly decided to use their daily exercise and walk around their local area, and their flat, til they’d walked the equivalent length of the River Thames.

That’s a whopping 454080 steps, 215 miles, or 346km!

Is there a trail, walk, or run you’ve always wanted to try?

The 2.6 challenge

Woman's Trust domestic abuse mental health #stayhome coronavirus covid-19 pandemic lockdown London charity fundraising twopointsixchallenge

The London Marathon is an annual event that people spend many months training for.

April 2021’s event was cancelled – meaning lots of people and charities lost out on vital fundraising.

So London Marathon created the twopointsixchallenge. People from all over the UK came together virtually and took part in fundraising challenges – including our very own #team26miles!

A mixture of running and walking, it helps you build up gradually to a full 5K run.
