Raise funds for the QNI

Most people will need the help of a community nurse at some point in their lives. The QNI is the charity dedicated to ensuring that people receive high quality nursing at home.

But we need your support to keep our work going. That's why we're looking for people to fundraise for us. If you fancy giving something back to your community, and having fun at the same time, why don't you get involved?

We're sure you've got lots of your own brilliant ideas to raise money, but here are a few of our own:

  • Visit a garden open for charity as part of The National Gardens Scheme 
  • Take part in a fun run
  • Sign up to a UK or overseas challenge event
  • Hold a quiz night at your local pub
  • Organise a sponsored swim
  • Take your unwanted clothes and toys to a car boot sale
  • Run a comedy night
  • Set up a swear box at work
  • Have a cake sale
  • Persuade your boss/ teacher to have a dress down day

Whatever you decide to do, we would like to support you every step of the way. We can give you advice on how to organise an event, help you to get sponsorship and provide you with leaflets and posters about the QNI.

If you would like to get involved, get in touch. Please contact Joanna Sagnella on 020 7549 1404 or

It's easy to raise money through

Remember, as soon as you have organised an event, or set one up yourself, you can easily raise money by setting up an online sponsorship page. Just visit and follow the simple steps.
