Community Fundraising

Want to be part of a fun, passionate and innovative team ready and raring to help raise funds to support The Maypole Project families?

Get creative with friends, family or colleagues and form your own fundraising group, or get together with one of our existing volunteers.

There are lots of ways you can get involved with our charity and help make a difference to the lives of children with complex or life threatening illnesses across South East London.

Organise your own event

WP_20150625_021“I wanted to put something back into the Maypole Project as they have helped us so much so I decided to hold a fundraising girls’ curry evening at my house and charge my friends, family and a couple of neighbours to come over and have a sociable evening. It was great fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it whilst raising funds for The Maypole Project and also raising awareness and they brought donations for the shop too. I am so pleased I did it. I had lots of support and good feedback and I am definitely planning another one!”

Why not organise:

A Race Night, Quiz Night, Pamper Evening, Murder Mystery Night, Fashion Show, Barn Dance, Wine Tasting Evening, Cake Sale or a Coffee Morning…

Give one of our lovely collection pots a new home!

Your loose change will allow us to support even more families with children who have complex and life threatening illnesses.  Contact the Fundraising Team to give a collection pot a new home 01689 851596 or

Waitrose has been running their Community Matters scheme since 2008. Each month stores receive £1,000 to distribute between three charities nominated by customers. Customers then vote for their favourite charity. To nominate The Maypole Project at your local store just pick up a Community Matters form in store.

John Lewis

After the success of Waitrose Community Matters scheme, John Lewis decided to launch it in their stores too. Each store has £3,000 to split between charities. To nominate The Maypole Project as one of the chosen charities, please fill in a nomination form at your local store.


Asda is now accepting online nominations for the charities you think they should support. Each store has a Community Life Champion who works a day a week to raise awareness for community organisations and inspire colleagues and customers to get involved. Simply find your nearest store online and fill in the short nomination form.

The Co-Operative

The Co-operative also has a programme where branch staff can nominate a local charity. So if you know someone that works for The Co-operative then please ask them to choose The Maypole Project as their charity.

We’re have plenty more ideas up our sleeves and are more than happy to help just give us a call on 01689 851596 or email for more information.
