Fundraise as a community

From gamers to golfers, community is all about bringing people together. You can stay super local by getting your street together for a party, or keep things digital with a virtual event.

Games night

Get your friends together for a good old-fashioned board games night. You could make it a sponsored event by playing for a set length of time.

Film night

Host a film night, and turn your home into a mini cinema for your guests. Ask for donations for ‘tickets’, and get the popcorn popping!

Street party

Support our global community – and strengthen your local community – by hosting a street party.

Hold an auction

Why not ask your neighbours and local businesses to donate their time, talents and services to attract bids at a community auction?

Online events

From raffles to trivia nights, or even a virtual open mic, doing a fundraiser online makes it easier for your loved ones locally and around the world to join in.

Getting thrifty

Second-hand sales are a wonderful, environmentally friendly way of raising money, and making sure your unneeded bric-a-brac finds a good home.

Gigs galore!

A wonderful community from Beeston have been supporting Oxfam by organising their very own ‘Oxjam’ music festival every year since 2011. According to event organiser Heather, it’s ‘a local institution’, offering 12 hours of live music with 125 artists across 20 stages. Heather said, “The festival is a brilliant example of a truly volunteer-led event, for a fantastic cause.” And it’s so iconic, it’s raised over £200,000 so far!
