Spare Change September – Fundraising campaign

This September we’ve created a fun campaign for you to try out with your work colleagues, friends, weekly groups or at home.

Ever find you’re carrying around lots of loose change?

Print off our Spare Change September poster, find a money box, jar or container, and encourage everyone to empty their (heavy) pockets for the support of New Life Home Trust. 

Whether you keep it by your front door at home, take it to your local club (Girl Guides, Swimming club, Church fate, Slimming World etc.) or have it in the workplace, this campaign is not only a great way to raise some extra pennies for us, but it’s a good way to spread awareness and get people talking.

See someone eyeing up the poster? Go over and chat to them about the work of New Life and share how they could get involved.

Don’t carry cash? That doesn’t mean you can’t contribute.

Share a link to our Virgin Money Giving page with your office, family Whatsapp group or friends on Facebook and remember our 250 for £10 campaign where we’re trying to find 250 new donors in 2018 to give £10 per month – the equivalent of a couple coffees, a cinema ticket or a few rides on the bus (charitable and good for the environment!).

As you collect spare change, share your images on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #SpareChangeSeptember and #NewLifeHomeTrustUK.

Time to ‘get social’ – Share your fundraising snaps for New Life

Technology can be a beautiful thing. It enables us to receive wonderful pictures from Kenya of the lovely boys and girls in our care. Not only that, but it can allow us to support one another, share stories, impact our friends and bring about positive change.

As you may have seen, we’re running our 250 for £10 campaign to encourage existing donors to invite just one friend to partner with us for £10 a month. That could simply mean replacing your weekly Starbucks. A great way to share this campaign is on social media with your friends and family.

In the past year, New Life Home Trust UK has set up social media accounts as a way to ‘get social’ and we’d love for you to get involved. On our social channels, we share pictures, updates and fundraising inspiration, alongside stories of hope and joy. In addition, you can also sign up to receive a monthly update via email here.

This past month, we’ve created a new Facebook group (alongside our existing Facebook page) for donors to connect with one another, collaborate on fundraising ideas, share pictures and stories and work together to support our work. We’d love for you to join the discussion.

Over on Instagram, it’s been lovely to see your fundraising efforts! Tag us in your photos using @newlifehome_uk  or use the hashtags #newlifehometrust and #NewLifeHomeTrustUK.


Thank you once again for your support.
