Ways to Fundraise

Our Sufra supporters have come up with various creative ways to raise money for us throughout the years. Here are a few examples of what you could do, or what has been done before:

Hot Meal Challenge App

Sufra NW London have launched a new app in partnership with developer Fabio Richter.

The Hot Meal Challenge app is encouraging university students in the UK to donate a hot meal to Sufra guests and help prevent poverty in NW London.

How does the challenge work?

  • Donate a hot meal (£5.50)
  • Challenge 3 friends to donate (they have 24 hours to accept)
  • Share your donation award on your Instagram Story and tag your nominees

The app is available to download from the Apple store now and has already raised over £1,000 for Sufra.

*an android version is coming soon!

Food Parcel Challenge

Learn more about the challenge here: #FoodParcelChallenge – Sufra NW London (sufra-nwlondon.org.uk)
