Want to raise money for your favourite charity without having to run a marathon or get sponsorship from friends? Here are some great ideas to help you change lives at no cost to you - financial or physical!

Donate as you dine

Make your restaurant booking through charitablebookings.org and nominate Changing Lives as your favourite charity. We’ll get £1 for every diner and meal you book. At no extra cost to you!


Donate as you shop

Give As You Live and GoRaise websites raise money for your favourite charity as you shop.

Sign up for an account online, browse their website for a store you want to shop with, click ‘shop now’ and shop as normal.

A percentage of what you spend will be donated to Changing Lives at no extra cost to you.

You will receive an email within 1-7 days to let you know how much you’ve raised.

Your holiday home can Change Lives

If you’ve got a cottage in the Lakes, an apartment in Tenerife, or a villa in Florida, your holiday home can help raise money for Changing Lives.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with a new charity called Charity Escapes, offering an easy way for you to make a significant and valuable donation to us.

We’re asking supporters who are fortunate enough to own a second home whether they’d donate a one- or two-week stay in that property.

Charity Escapes will market the property online to holiday makers at the standard rental rate and a large proportion of the fee is donated to Changing Lives.

The Charity Escapes website launches in spring 2017. It will contain a wide variety of holidays donated from individuals, charity partners and commercial partners, making it an appealing site for globe trotters and charity lovers alike.

If your property would have been empty, your gift is at minimal cost to you but provides a substantial value towards supporting clients get free of addictions and into safe homes and employment.

Take a look at the Charity Escapes leaflet for more information, then contact Rick McCordall, Project Director at Charity Escapes, on 0191 303 7837 or email rick@charityescapes.com to find out more or to donate time in your holiday home.
