Fundraising

There are many ways you can raise funds for the Uphill Trust:

Take part in a sponsored event or sponsor a participant.

Host a collection tin in your workplace.

Hold a fundraiser:

  • Craft sale
  • Good-as-new sale
  • Sale of plants, fruit, vegetables, eggs, honey,
  • Clothes swap event
  • Quiz
  • Sporting event (golf, curling, tennis, bowls…)
  • Ladies (or gent’s) night
  • Coffee morning/fundraising supper
  • Anything else you can think of!

We can help you to set up a fundraising or event page and are happy to share your fundraising on our social media channels.

Nominate Us

Why not encourage your workplace, church, school or community groups to support us?

If you are involved with an organisation that has a charitable ethos, you might like to nominate the Uphill Trust as a potential recipient charity. We have forged excellent links with schools, churches, community cafes and other groups and the fundraising they do on our behalf is extremely valuable. Some large organisations  offer to match the fundraising total – which is a fantastic boost.

Invite Us

How about inviting one of the Uphill trustees to talk to your group, workplace, church or school? Many groups and community organisations invite a speaker each month.

Belinda, Max and Liddy are all happy to speak to local groups about the trust and the work that we do. Please get in touch if you would like us to share our story with your group.

Pop-Up Craft Shop

Would you like to host a pop-up craft shop-in-a-box?

The trust has forged a strong relationship with the Woro En Ryeko collective based in the Banda Kireka shanty town in Kampala, which makes paper beads. Beads, purchased every time the trustees visit Uganda, are fashioned into earrings, necklaces and bracelets by Liddy and are available to buy at local craft fairs and pop-up shops.  All the sale proceeds are donated to the trust.

If you would like some Ugandan paper bead jewellery to sell in your workplace, church or community group, please contact Liddy.

Spread the Word

We are a small charity, without a media or advertising department, so we rely on our supporters to share the news of our work to their friends, family and colleagues. Please do follow our social media posts, share our newsletters and chat to others about the trust and what we are trying to achieve. It all helps!

100% of your fundraising will be used to support projects at the school.

A little of what we have goes a long way in rural Uganda!
