Fundraising Stories of Success
fundraising stories of success
Want to take part in a DUCK event but worried about the fundraising target? We bring you fundraising stories of success from past and present Durham students to reassure and inspire you. Fundraising is easier than you think and can be great fun to do - especially if you team up with friends or other participants. Your actions can make a huge impact to the charities we support and the people and animals that they support. If you would like any further advice or have any questions please email our Fundraising Officer who is here to help you!
Success story: Sophie Jago
Amount Raised: £33,166

How did she do it?
We got the most money through sponsored events like walks, runs, sleep outs in school. A really successful event was our quiz nights as we ran a raffle at the same time. We also did car boot sales and organised treasure hunts for younger kids.
