Fundraising during Covid
Get together with friends, family and colleagues virtually, have fun and raise money for RoadPeace at the same time. Here are a few ideas of activities to do together:
Online quiz - download the RoadPeace Lockdown Quiz or make up your own quiz. Ask each team to make a donation to RoadPeace.
Online dinner party - cook and then enjoy a special meal together, or support your local favourite restaurant and get a take away. Spend an evening together online and make a donation to RoadPeace.
Book club - are you in a book club that would normally meet in a pub, café or restaurant? If so, you could ask your fellow bookworms to donate the money they would normally spend on a night out to RoadPeace.
Despite lockdown, it's still possible, and recommended, to take daily exercise.
Why not set yourself a running, walking or cycling challenge?
This could be to achieve a personal best, go the furthest you've ever been or set yourself a distance target, for example running 100 miles in a month.
This could be on your own or you could join with others and add up all your distances.
Set up an online fundraising page on JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving and ask your friends to sponsor you.
RoadPeace has a number of places in the Virgin London Virtual Marathon, which will be the world's biggest ever marathon.
All participants will receive their running numbers before the event and all finishers will receive their coveted official finisher medal and T-shirt post event.
You'll have a full 24 hours to complete your 26.2 miles on Sunday 3 October, so don't miss out!
