Raise money and help save lives from the comfort of your own home
If you’re looking for a way to rally friends and work colleagues together and bring a little light-relief into your day while stuck at home, then look no further.
Whether you’re getting creative in the kitchen, hosting virtual hang-outs with friends and family online or getting fit with workouts at home, we’ve got lots of ideas for how you can raise funds to help save babies’ lives. Virtual events are a great way to challenge yourself and raise money, all from the comfort of your own home.
Make sure you stay safe throughout the challenges and you are adhering to the government’s social distancing guidelines at all times. Where possible, stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
Try taking on our Steps against Strep during your daily exercise and challenge yourself to climb Snowdon (24,785 steps) or the Gherkin (1,037 steps) on your stairs at home. Get sponsored to hit the summit!
Take on a series of activities to test your
endurance, strength, speed and sense of
humour over the course of 21 days with a
Tough Mudder challenge.
Host a Social Event
Use Netflix’s party feature and host a movie night for you and your friends, with everyone logging on from their sofa at home and donating the cost of a cinema ticket to your JustGiving page.
Run a class and teach your friends something new, like online yoga, a language or cooking class. Ask for a donation to your JustGiving page for anyone who attends.
Calling all gamers! Want a good excuse to play your favourite game, have fun and stream live? Then why not plan a video games marathon.
Why not host a virtual GBSS Bake Sale and donate the price of your cuppa and cake to Group B Strep Support. You could run an online baking class, play party games, or have a cuppa and chat through video chat, WhatsApp, or over the phone.
Got a celebration or anniversary
approaching? Ask for donations to Group B Strep Support instead of gifts. You can have a celebration fundraiser set up on Facebook in minutes.
Use your skills
Get crafty! Create jewellery, knit scarves ready for winter or even get a head start on your Christmas cards by making them now. Craft now and sell your stocks later in aid of Group B Strep Support.
This is the perfect time to learn a new skill! Find out who has a secret skill by asking your friends and colleagues what their skills are. This could be anything from playing guitar to crocheting. Other friends and family can donate £5 to learn a new skill from you.

Make a donation
Many of us are finding that we are working from home or cancelling activities outside of the house. This may mean that you find that we are saving money on travel or other expenses. If you are able to, you may want to consider donating those savings to Group B Strep Support.
