What you could do... fundraising ideas

There are so many things you could do to make a difference – just pick something you love to do.

Enjoy a physical challenge? You could organise a trek or cycle with your friends. Love Socialising? How about a quiz or a special party?

Use any talents you have – in craft, baking or music for instance – to make a difference. Here are just a few ideas to get you going

Get social

 Champagne bottle

Quiz Night. Get everyone together for a brain workout. Sell tickets, and have a raffle or tombola too. Why not ask local businesses to donate the prizes?

Summer Picnic. Invite your friends and family to a fabulous spread! You might have an entry fee, or charge per picnic item. You could pair it with the Sports Day...

Dinner Party. This can be an intimate gathering or a promenade meal in which each course is enjoyed in a different home. A suggested donation will get you on the guest list. Or how about opening a ‘pay-what-it’s worth’ pop-up restaurant for the evening?

Get physical

Cycling - fundraising ideas

Ride the roads. We have the inspiration you need to get on your bike. Whether it’s a sponsored coast-to-coast ride with friends or a commuting challenge – pick a fundraising target that will keep you motivated.

Sports Day. Everyone gets competitive when shown an egg and spoon! Charge an entry fee or ask teams to make a donation for each challenge.

Take on a personal challenge. Walk to work for a month, choose a long distance path in the UK or take on a run. The bigger the challenge for you personally, the more sponsorship you can ask for from others.

Get crafty


Bake Off. Who is the best baker in your family or office? There’s only one way to find out. Throw a tea party to show off your skills, hold a competition and charge to enter. You could ask for extra donations to taste the winning cakes and bakes!

Summer Fete. Discover the hidden craftiness of your friends and colleagues - hold a sale of items you’ve all produced. Boost your fundraising total through a guessing competition: how many sweets in the jar or the weight of a homemade or donated cake.

Much much more...

 Easter egg

And there are so many other things you could do: Fashion show; disco; sunflower growing competition; bring and buy sale; charity ball; Auction of Promises, where you can bid for skills or services donated by friends. Why not let the seasons inspire you? Valentine’s Day party, Easter Egg hunt, Halloween fun night or a Christmas Concert.
