A Great New Fundraising Idea by Dinner4Good

We are always on the lookout for imaginative new fundraising ideas - and here's one that we've been very quick to take up.

It's called Dinner4Good and allows you to raise money for us simply by doing something you enjoy - having friends round for dinner. To see how it works, just go to

It Couldn't Be Easier

You create a personalised "Dinner Page" on the Dinner4Good website (it takes about 5 minutes) and then email invitations will be automatically sent from the site. Your guests then accept and donate online, which means you can see who is coming and how much is being raised - in a click.

It reduces the awkwardness of asking for money and no there's no hassle with collecting cash. Dinner4Good takes care of everything, including the Gift Aid application - so all you have to do is eat, drink and enjoy yourselves.

Anyone Can Do It

What's really exciting about this idea is that anyone can do it - unlike running a marathon or climbing Kilimanjaro. What's more, those donating get to enjoy the event itself, plus the money is raised by doing something you might be doing anyway.

Lastly, but perhaps most importantly of all, it's 'sustainable'.  You can do it more than once and your friends might then also hold a Dinner4Good which means that, over the coming months, this simple idea could raise more money than even the most heroic of feats.

So get the ball rolling with a dinner of your own ... and let's see how far it can go.

Dinner4Good will keep you informed of all the money that's been raised as a result of your first dinner being duplicated by others. They've calculated that your single dinner could generate up to an amazing £100,000 over a period of five years!  How good would that feel?
