Each year we are surprised and delighted by the creativity that Walk and Run participants bring to their fundraising efforts. Below are some ideas to get you started.
Would your friends, family or colleagues pay to see you look silly? Tell them you’ll complete the Walk in fancy dress if they help you reach your fundraising goal.
Morning or Afternoon Tea
Hold a morning or afternoon tea at your home, school or workplace and ask everyone who attends to make a donation.
Many local businesses, such as hardware stores and garden centres, allow charity groups to hold sausage sizzles outside their stores. Approach your local butcher or grocery store for donations of sausages or bread.
Themed Dress/Casual Dress Day
Organise a dress theme / casual dress day at your school or work and ask participants to make a gold coin donation. Alternatively, get wacky and go for loud shirts or crazy ties.
Small change to make a Big Difference Jar
Ask around at home, work or school for small change that is rattling about in drawers, ashtrays, tins and dark corners or start collecting all your loose change now – you’ll be surprised how quickly it adds up. Every little bit helps.
Host an auction or trivia night at a local bar, restaurant or club and put the entry fees towards your fundraising. Many venues will be happy to let you use their space for charity, particularly if you can bring in additional patrons on a quiet night of the week. Holding an auction or raffle during the trivia break is a great way to maximise your fundraising. You could also offer clues in return for extra donations.
Approach Sovereign Cinemas to run a charity movie screenings, with a percentage of ticket sales to go towards your fundraising.
