Fundraising as a group is a great way to do something good for woods with your friends, family or colleagues. Plus, it’s great fun!

Whether you support each other through a gruelling long distance bike ride or split into teams for a sporting tournament, there are lots of ways to raise money for us as a group.

Fundraising ideas for groups

Here are some great ideas for group fundraising to get you started.

  • Go head-to-head. Organise a football match, a rounders game or even an It’s a Knockout-style tournament and sell tickets to raise money.
  • Get munching. Host a group eating competition and see who can stomach the hottest chilli, identify weird and (not so) wonderful flavour combinations, or simply scoff the most sausage rolls. Charge for entry and tickets to bring in donations.
  • Go for walkies. Arrange a sponsored dog walk for your pet’s furry pals (and their owners).
  • Get outside. Take on a bike ride, hike, run or swim together and ask for support from friends and family.

Whatever you choose to do, your efforts will help us continue to make a real difference in protecting, restoring and creating native woods and trees for the benefit of wildlife and people.

In June 2021, friends Chris and Mark set themselves an incredible goal - to cycle 1,000 miles in 10 days and raise enough money to plant 1,000 trees. They wanted to raise awareness of the climate emergency, do their bit to make a positive impact, and leave a better legacy for their young children. 

They cycled the length of the UK from Land's End to John o' Groats, 1,176 miles in total, all unsupported and carrying everything they needed for the trip. What's more, they did it all with net zero carbon emissions.
