Fundraise with family and friends
There are so many ways to boost your fundraising at home. Why not do some good while having a fabulous time with your nearest and dearest!
Throw a dinner party
Invite some friends over and ask them to make a donation for your delicious food. You could take it further and arrange a “Come Dine With Me” style event for even more socialising and more funds.
Plan a walk
Plan a walk that friends and family of all ages can enjoy in a nearby park or along a well known route in your locality. Get sponsored to walk and get fit at the same time. Win win!
Organise a quiz night
Get your friends with the most local knowledge to write a quiz that could be hosted in your local pub or other venue of your choice. Ask for a donation for each team that enters. Ask friends and family and local businesses to donate suitable prizes for the winning team and for a raffle that you could also draw on the night. See if the pub/venue is able to donate any nibbles or food or get your loved ones to each bring a dish and make an evening out of your fundraising event.
Belle of the ball
If you have time to organise a more elaborate fundraiser and an appetite for a bit of a challenge, throw a ball for your friends and family. Charge for tickets, have an auction or raffle, offer a delicious feast, and dance the night away! Trawl through your networks and see where you can ask for freebies in terms of a band, catering, prizes, flowers, entertainment, venue. It’s all about being a little creative!
