Fundraise in your Community

There are many fun and interesting ways that you can fundraise for Coeliac UK!

We have some suggestions below to help you get started but if you would like to set up your own event please contact our Fundraising team for a fundraising pack and to tell us what you’re planning. Email or call 01494 796724. 

Cake SaleAt school or University

Help your child by holding a fundraising event at their school, such as a gluten free cake sale or non-uniform day. Our Young Champions pack has more ideas and advice for fundraising at school. Fundraising whilst at university can create some incredible memories, you could hold an event on campus or encourage your Raising and Giving (RAG) society to support us. 

At home

Fundraising can be so easy that you don't even need to leave your house to do it! From hosting a charity BBQ to having a TV marathon or even a Gluten Free Tea Party. 


Awareness StandAt work 

Holding an event at your workplace can be an exciting way to fundraise for Coeliac UK. From dress down days to a work quiz night, get your colleagues supporting us.

You could even enter a team in to one of our challenge events or make charitable donations straight from your salary through the Give as you Earn (GAYE) scheme.



Community Fundraising

With your local community or club 

The possibilities for fundraising in your local community are endless! You could organise a coffee morning at your church, have a stall at a fayre or even hold a tournament at your local sports club. 


Community FundraisingGift in celebration

Celebrate your birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation or any other special occasion with us by requesting donations to Coeliac UK instead of gifts. By asking your friends and family to donate on your behalf to mark your special event, you can give an amazing gift to people affected by coeliac disease. We can provide you with donation envelopes, which can be included in your invitations or be handed to friends, family and guests. You can also use your Facebook page to set up a birthday fundraiser for donations instead of birthday presents.

Fundraising collections

Speak to your local supermarket or businesses and see if they will let you hold a collection on their premise (please be aware we do not support house to house collections). We can send you the buckets and other materials, we just need you and your friends to ask others to donate to a fantastic cause. 

Do you have an idea for a fundraising event?

It could be a sponsored head shave, a sponsored beard grow or giving up something for a month. Whatever it is, please let us know and we can send you our fundraising pack to help turn your idea into funds to help those living without gluten.
