Cake Stall Let the people eat cake! Hold a traditional cake stand at work, school or fetes. Check health and safety regulations.
Car Wash Organise a charity Car Wash, speak with local schools, car parks and sports car park owners to hold your event.
Carol Concert Host a festive concert for your community. Earn extra by selling mince pies and mulled wine.
Casino Evening Fun Casinos are the perfect medium for charity & fundraising events. They offer great entertainment combined with raising money.
Charity Ball Raise sponsorship the sophisticated way. Organise a themed ball, perhaps masquerade? Organise a DJ or live music at a swanky venue and charge for tickets. Boost your earnings with evening games, raffles and auctions.
Coffee Morning/Afternoon A great opportunity to get your favourite people together and catch up over cakes and coffee.
Collection Tins Collection tins do best in shops and businesses. If you would like a collection tin for your shop then contact us today.
Fairs or Fetes Get yourself a big space (a hall, a field or even a car park) and let your imagination go crazy. Set up a coconut shy, apple bobbing stand, races and white elephant stalls.
Film Club Have a movie night in a community centre, get the projector out and a screen, supply popcorn and refreshments. Charge everyone a fee to get in and for refreshments.
Football Match Ask your local team to play a match or gather two teams of friends and family together. Organise a raffle at half time and get prizes donated by local businesses. Alternatively, organise a match pitting your mates against their dads and older relatives. Ask each player to pay a fee to play and buy a small cup for the winning team.
Fill Smartie tubes with coins Pass Smartie tubes out to your friends and family and ask them to fill them with spare change - preferably £1 coins!
Garden Party Whip up some cucumber sandwiches and dust off the picnic tables. Charge a small entrance fee and organise a collection during the fundraising event.
Go-Karting Competition Organise a group of mates to head to the local Go-Kart track. Inform the staff of your fundraising efforts and hope that they waive the admission fee - best to go off-peak times if you want to give this a try. Ask each person to pay a fee to enter a series of races. Award the winners a small prize each.
Give up a Vice Whether it’s smoking, alcohol or your daily choccie bar - get sponsored to give it up for a set period - or ask people to sponsor you per day. Then you could rake in wads of cash!
Halloween Party Probably best organised around the 31st October (though an out of season "Fundraising Halloween" might also be fun). Encourage your friends to dress the part and run a fancy dress competition with a small prize for the winner. All guests should pay a small entrance fee to attend.
Head Shaving Less impressive if you already have a crew cut, but for those of you with long flowing locks this could earn you shed loads of cash. Or if you aren't feeling brave, get sponsored to shave the head of a hairy (willing) mate.
It’s a Knockout competition Get some teams together and arrange assault courses, games and quizzes galore. Each team member pays a few pounds to take part - with the winning team being awarded a prize donated by a local company (or pub!).
Line-dancing Hold a line-dancing party. Find out about all the line-dancing classes and clubs in your area (you'll be surprised at how many there are) and send out invites; charge for tickets. Get in the spirit with costumes and decorations.
Luncheon Invite everyone in your workplace, school or street to a grand lunch (for a small fee). Make posh sarnies and nibbles. This could work especially well in an office, where people will appreciate an unusual break in the middle of the day.
Limbo Competition This could work well down the pub. Charge for entry to the competition, and get the bar to donate a few free drinks for the winner.
Marathon events- A fundraising classic! Hire a local hall, or see if you can get one free for a good cause. Hold a marathon table tennis, aerobics, line dancing or badminton session (in shift teams). Get relevant companies to sponsor you in exchange for publicity in the hall (local gyms, sports shops etc). Get sponsorship from friends and family too.
Murder Mystery Night This could be great, especially if you're a member of an amateur dramatics group, or a drama group at school or college, who'll help you out.
Musical Evening Get some talented friends together and hold a concert. If you do this in a pub or bar, it will be more low-key than in a hall or theatre, and there will be things for the audience to do during gaps between performances (i.e.drinking and mingling).
Pancake Day party Everyone loves pancakes, right? Hold a pancake party for all your family and friends. Serve unlimited pancakes and hold a pancake-tossing competition.
Penalty shoot-out competition- People pay to enter; you get your hands on a signed football or some sports goodies for the winner. Get a football team or sports shop to donate the prize.
Pet show Get a pet shop to donate prizes in exchange for publicity. Why not make it an alternative pet show, with prizes for the waggiest dog, pet lookalikes etc?
Plant Sale Requires forward planning. Buy a packet of seeds for a quid, plant them, and when they're looking impressive, set up a stall and sell the plants for donations.
Pub Games Skittles, darts, pool, cards... Charge people to enter; the landlord/lady will appreciate the custom and might agree to donate free drinks for the winner. You could even make it a weekly league.
Picnics Sell tickets in advance; with a little imagination, you can make great, fun picnic food from cheap ingredients.
Video-a-thon Rent a bunch of classic movies and play them back-to-back for 24 hours. Print schedules and hand them out to your friends and acquaintances, who'll hopefully turn up and pay to watch their favourites. Offer a discount for those who last the whole 24 hours. Don't skimp on the popcorn.
Who’s that baby Get old baby-photos of your mates or - much better - your bosses or teachers. Stick them up around your school or office and get people to pay to guess who they are. Needless to say, you'll need a quality prize for the winner.
Window Cleaning Spend a weekend cleaning windows for your neighbours or local shops. Fundraising Tip: Ask for donations rather than charging a set fee and you may get more money.
