Who doesn’t love a good chit-chat over a cup of coffee? Just because we can’t get together and meet face-to-face, doesn’t mean that we can’t come together virtually; our Coffee Morning is the perfect chance to have a good natter all for a good cause! Don’t forget, physical distancing doesn’t have to mean social distancing! Now, all that’s left to do is get the kettle on, the biscuits out, and away you go!
Firstly, choose a date that works best for you and your network. Then, pick your virtual ‘coffee shop’ platform. There are plenty you can choose from, including Microsoft Teams, Zoom or House Party.
We’ve included a link here which will take you straight to JustGiving where you can create your page. We’ve also got a brilliant Online Fundraising Guide below, which offers some great advice on making the most from your page.
Whether it be through text, email or social media, spread the word and ask your friends, family or colleagues to join. The more people you can get involved, the better! This is a social event after all and the Coffee Morning poster below is a great way to help advertise on your social media platforms.
The hardest part about fundraising can sometimes be to simply ask for a donation. Why not ask people to make a donation to join your Virtual Coffee Morning?
Now for the main event; boil your kettles, get your biscuits out and away you go! Hosting a Coffee Morning will not only be a great way to raise funds for the Trust, but it’s a brilliant opportunity to raise sepsis awareness amongst your friends and family!
