Fundraise for hungry children this Eurovision

Watch the spectacular song contest unfold while supporting Mary’s Meals

Published on

With all its glam and glitter, the Eurovision Song Contest is back. 

On Saturday, 13 May, 26 countries will battle it out to become Eurovision winners for 2023. And for the first time in 25 years, the contest takes place right here in the UK, in Liverpool. 

Why not watch the spectacular Eurovision show unfold while helping to feed hungry children? 

Your support helps us to keep our promise to the 2,429,182 children receiving Mary’s Meals, while striving to reach the next hungry child waiting. 

Here’s four ways you can fundraise for Mary’s Meals, this Eurovision. 

Host a fancy dress party

Eurovision has seen some notable fashion moments. 

Host your own Eurovision fancy dress party by encouraging everyone to embrace the sequins and hairspray, while asking for a donation to Mary’s Meals. No matter how small, every amount raised counts when it comes to transforming a child’s life. 

Hold a sweepstake

A sweepstake is a fun way for everyone to join in the Eurovision fun, while supporting the work of Mary’s Meals. 

Entrants each pay the same amount to take part and will be randomly allocated a competing country to cheer on. Should their newly adopted nation be crowned Eurovision winner, they’ll win a prize. 

The remaining proceeds can be donated to Mary’s Meals helping us to reach more hungry children. 

Put your Eurovision knowledge to the test

If you know your Baccara from your Bucks Fizz, a fun way to warm-up for Eurovision is with a quiz. 

Each competitor can pay £5 into a prize pot; rewarding the winner while any remaining funds can be donated to Mary’s Meals. 

Cook up a treat

Inspired by the cuisines of the competing countries, you can cook up a delicious Eurovision feast and ask diners for a donation to Mary’s Meals. 

A Eurovision-themed bake sale can also help to raise funds as part of our Raise Some Dough campaign, while you treat your friends and colleagues to something sweet. 

If you’re fundraising online, once you have chosen your charity fundraiser, simply create a Facebook Fundraiser or JustGiving page. The money donated by your sponsors will automatically be sent to us when your fundraiser ends.

Thank you for everything you do to help us keep our promise to more than 2.4 million children each school day.
