Could your school fundraise for Glass Door?

If you’re looking for inspiration, here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Hold a non-uniform day
  • Incorporate some fundraising into events such as a talent show or school play
  • Try your hand at baking and host a bake sale. You could even turn it in to an all school competition and crown a star baker!
  • Hold a Sleep Out in a school hall or field
  • Collect spare change throughout a term – why not turn it in to a friendly competition and see which class or year can raise the most.
  • Hold a sweepstake in your class
  • Quiz - Pay £1 to enter and winner takes half total
  • Why not get parents and teachers involved too? Ask your PTA or friends group to hold a quiz, dinner or summer fete

We can provide a primary schools pack, and a secondary, colleges and sixth form pack. Both provide age appropriate information on homelessness in addition to fundraising tips.  

Harvest Collection
If you are interested in running a Harvest Festival Collection, we ask that you please take a look at the kinds of things we currently need

Talks at Schools
We are happy to field requests to send a speaker to schools or youth groups in West/South West London.

As an independent charity that receives no government fundraising, it is thanks to the support and generosity of our local community that we can continue to provide shelter and support to those who need it most.

To get involved, please email [email protected] or give us a call on 020 7351 4948
