Teaching Music

One of the best ways to raise sponsorship for charity is to utilise skills that you already have and share them with others. People are always eager to learn and develop so if they can donate to the East Cheshire Hospice at the same time, this is positive all round!

Can you play an instrument to a high standard? Why not teach your music skills online in exchange for donations towards the hospice.

Battle of the Bands

Raise funds and melt faces!

Does a battle of the bands type event sound like music to your ears? Forget that same old, same old talent show. A battle of the bands fundraiser is great way to raise money for charity, give your fundraising cause a cool reputation and have a really good time. The competition element adds even more excitement and passion to the mix!

Raise money by charging an entry fee, selling merchandise and food. You could also get some collection tins from the Hospice and hold a raffle! Another option is to also ask bands to pay a nominal registration fee to perform, but this may depend on what kind of acts you want to get involved and how well you might know them. Don’t forget to ask the performers to say a little bit about the charity they are supporting before they start their set!

How do I get started?

There’s some great ideas and advice here to plan a successful battle of the bands event, but this is something that you can really make your own! It could be a royal rock rampage, or maybe a veritable variety show! If you know some musicians and people in bands at your school, that’s a great place to start by getting them on board. Then you just need a venue, some equipment and lots of promotion!
