Lockdown fundraising

Our lives may be very different right now, but there are still lots of creative ways you can raise money for vulnerable people across Merton. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed. So, we’ve put together some socially distanced lockdown fundraising ideas, and it’s even better if you have your own idea! Email us at events@wimbledonguild.co.uk and we’ll offer any help and advice you need.

On My Doorstep Photographic Project - Paola De Paola Photos  

"My reason for starting this project (on Monday 4th May 2020) was to help my local community to embrace positivity during the lockdown period. Families found themselves isolated during this pandemic so my aim is to bring a smile to people’s faces, taking the portraits on their doorsteps - respecting social distancing - with the desire to make this unprecedented time together count and not be forgotten".

"My mates started an online games evening - it’s been so much fun. We have had players from all across the country and even one mate from New Zealand. We all paid £10 to enter and then the winner chooses a charity to donate the money too. After some terrible luck I finally won on Friday and chose Wimbledon Guild. Its great to be helping our local community and I reckon we will keep playing even after lockdown has lifted!"

"We are a group of volunteers, children and adults, from Wimbledon Park junior parkrun, who also help to promote and provide friendly connections in the community and healthy living, so Wimbledon Guild, with its shared values and aims was the perfect local charity for us to raise money for." 

We need your help...

Socially isolated people across Merton are depending on us for immediate and practical support with food deliveries, telephone befriending and much more. In what is a difficult time for everyone, help us support vulnerable people who are likely to feel the impact most.
