Each Trailwalker team pledges to raise £1,400 for Oxfam and The Gurkha Welfare Trust as part of their challenge. Broken down between all four walking team members, this works out at just £350 per person. On average most teams raise in excess of £1,800, so we hope that with our help, you can smash your sponsorship this year!

We have a number of fundraising resources to help you reach and exceed your fundraising total. We also have some incredible examples of how Oxfam and The Gurkha Welfare Trust are using vital donations to do life-changing work around the world - share these stories with your friends and family and inspire them to donate.

A quick and easy way of getting £100 or so towards your total. Are there any sports tournaments on? TV shows? If you search online, you’ll usually find downloadable sweepstake kits. If in doubt we have our downloadable treasure map.

Sell stuff

Have a spring clean. Sell your unwanted items online, at a car boot or a local sale. If you’ve got something of good value or can offer services e.g. gardening, hold an auction.

Curry night

People love food. Cakes, curries, breakfast sarnies. There’s so much you can do. A bake sale at work, a dinner party with friends, cheese and wine night, BBQs at your local. Just ask for donations on the night.
