Back of the net! How you can get involved in Hat-trick for Hospitals

Nottingham Forest 2

Have you signed up for Hat-trick for Hospitals, our special partnership with Nottingham Forest Community Trust?

There’s still plenty of time to get involved, raise £75 for children and teenagers across Nottinghamshire, and receive your exclusive Nottingham Forest training shirt!

If you’re looking for inspiration for how you can raise your £75, look no further! We’ve put together a list of fantastic fundraising ideas, some of which have already been tried and tested by our Hat-trick for Hospitals supporters…

1. Get active!

Get outside and get moving in whatever way you choose! Hat-trick for Hospitals supporter Mylo (pictured) chose to do 100 laps on his bike, to reach his £75 target. Meanwhile, fellow supporter Rob has chosen to run 100 laps around a football pitch, and George took on seven mini triathlons in seven days! Whether you prefer to run, walk, cycle, skip or hop, you’ll soon be on your way to reaching your fundraising target!

2. Use your footy skills!

You could use your footy skills to do a sponsored penalty shootout with friends, sponsored keepy-uppies, or even host a virtual football-themed quiz! Don’t forget to set up your Hat-trick for Hospitals JustGiving page to help you reach that £75 goal!

3. Get creative!


Everyone loves handmade goodies, so why not make and sell your own wares? Mark (pictured above) reached his £75 target by holding a festive-themed willow workshop, while Charlie turned her hand to baking some Christmassy cupcakes (pictured below). You could make and sell your own jewellery, greetings cards or baked goods, and enjoy getting creative while raising money for a great cause.
There are 12 festive cakes in a box. They have snowmen, reindeer, santa clause and mrs clause.

4. Go online!

Hat-trick for Hospitals supporter Nathan is raising his £75 with a 24-hour Fortnite stream! Gaming can be a great way to raise funds, and have fun with friends too!

5. Get together!

Get together with friends, family or colleagues – either virtually or in person – for a coffee morning, quiz night or book club.

Whatever you choose to do, the money you raise will go towards two fantastic causes – the Youth Service here at Nottingham Hospitals, and the community work done by Nottingham Forest Community Trust.

And once you reach your £75 target, you’ll be able to claim your exclusive Nottingham Forest training shirt, as a special ‘thank you’ for all your hard work.
