If every HPHA Facebook supporter and those who signed the Save the Ferry Petition raises £20 by undertaking a small fundraising activity, we will very quickly raise £10,000 - this would make a huge difference to the campaign, enabling the HPHA to employ a Project Development Co-ordinator to move the pier redevelopment project forward much faster than volunteers are able to.
Could you hold a cake sale at work or have a week of offering customers biscuits for donations, run a raffle at a meal with friends or coffee morning, clean your neighbours' or friends' cars, hold a DVD/xbox/playstation game swap with friends, do a sponsored walk/sing/silence/no chocolate, or come up with your own ideas that helps you to have FUN whilst FUNdraising with your friends and family or at work.
If you want to organise a larger event to raise more money - please do... and let the fundraising team know so that we can help publicise it (email: email@example.com)
The challenge starts on 14th March. The first thing to do is REGISTER on the HPHA website that you are going to take part in the £20 Challenge by filling in your details and what you think you will be doing to raise £20. Then you have until the HPHA event on Hythe Pier on Saturday 14th April to fundraise. Take photos of whatever you do and post on Facebook @savehythepier to show us how you are getting on.
Once you have raised £20 (or more), you can either hand it over in person to us on the pier on Saturday 14th April, or pay it in online or by cheque. If none of these work for you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll sort something out. Anyone who fundraises £20 or more will have their name entered into a prize draw to win one of 3 prizes: Meal voucher at BeBe's Cafe, Hythe, a family ticket for entry to the Solent Sky Museum or a framed photograph of Hythe Pier. Prize Draw will take place on Sunday 22nd April 2018.
The aim is for everyone to TAKE ACTION and fundraise now. Last year many people kindly gave a £20 donation rather undertook a fundraising activity. This year, these will be treated as individual donations and not part of the £20 Challenge, so will not be part of the prize draw.
