Thinking of fundraising?

Whatever you raise, every pound will help local children and families in need. Your money will go directly towards helping The Good Shepherd Centre provide learning courses, a food bank, building a sustainable organisation to continuously expand our services for those in need.

Let us know! 

Please let us know if you’re planning to fundraise for us. We love to hear about your exciting plans and wish you good luck along the way. The Good Shepherd Centre might even be able to help you publicise your event and offer some advice. Whatever you manage to raise, we are extremely grateful for and would like to express our thanks afterwards so please let us know!



Decide how will you fundraise! 
There are so many fun ways to raise money. Make sure you challenge yourself but, most importantly, pick something that you know you will enjoy!
We have added some ideas below to help you decide:


Stuck for some inspiration? Here are some tried and trusted ways that you could raise money for a cause that you care about. 

Doing charitable work is available to all, so don’t be put off by the fact that you are unable to do some of the suggestions on this list. Some of the biggest fundraising drives have been those that take very little effort (the ice bucket challenge is a great example) but are fun and can be done by anyone regardless of physical ability.

  • Hold a bake sale
  • Take the plunge and do a sponsored swim
  • Give up something you love
  • Get your pets involved, maybe a challenge to walk a set number of miles in a month
  • Organise a fundraising event, maybe a craft fayre, a seasonal event such as an Easter bonnet parade or a Christmas fayre
  • Do a year of good deeds
  • Enter a 10k or do a couch to 5k challenge
  • Run a marathon
  • Do an extreme challenge
  • Hold a jumble sale or a kids toy sale
  • Get on your bike and ride
  • Green fingered? Hold a plant sale
  • Children can get involved too, perhaps a mini toddle event or a teddy bears picnic?

Pop Up Shop

In November 2020 a new initiative was set up by The Good Shepherd Centre. A pop up shop, located in Keighley town centre. 

The shop was set up to help vulnerable and needy people in our community and is also a great way of sharing our other services from a town centre base.
