Our family and friends fundraising is the most crucial element of all our fundraising work. It costs £600,000 to run Mac House each year. The families who stay with us, recently and throughout the nearly 25 years we have been open, understand the difference made by the charity and they and their extended families and friends and often work colleagues, get together and raise funds to keep Mac House open. Our families know we are totally independent and must raise all our own funds and they set about doing that in a vast range of amazing ways!
Our family and friends fundraising is incredibly rewarding, it’s about giving something back and there’s real pride and satisfaction in knowing your family have helped another just like you stay close together when it matters most. It’s also a lot of fun!
What can you do to help raise funds for Mac House ? Well, pretty much anything as long as it’s legal, decent, safe and you and your family and friends enjoy giving your time and effort to help others be able to stay at Mac House.
Whatever can be done to raise funds, our families and their friends have done it and constantly come up with new ways to help us get the money we need to stay open.
Can you help ? Looking for inspiration and great ways to fundraise ? Please get in touch with the Fundraising team on 0151 252 5869 or email us on Gill.Wilson@rmhliverpool.org.uk or denise.Byrne@rmhliverpool.org.uk or why not come in and see us at Mac House and sit down for a coffee or a tea or even a Waffle on a Friday morning and talk about fundraising and ways to help.
What kind of things do our family and friends supporters do to raise funds for us ? Well, they…….
abseil down a very tall iconic building or Skydive !
Recommend us for Charity of the Year voting in their workplace, this can be huge for us!
