  1. Foodie Fundraising

    A food inspired fundraising event is bound to draw in plenty of people, whether you ask for donations at a regular event, or host a cake sale, food events are always popular. You could even add a competitive element for keen Bake-off fans.

    Suggestions: Afternoon tea, Ready Steady Cook, Coffee Morning, Bake-off, Come Dine with Me

  2. Intellectual

    For those that prefer a challenge, quizzes and competitions are easy to pull together and are great events for all ages. There is usually a fee for each competitor or each team, and you could provide a meal or other refreshments for an added donation. If you want to fundraise for your workplace, you could add a fundraising element to something you already do, such as through networking events.

    Suggestions: Quiz, Mastermind, Competitions, Networking

  3. Musical

    Whether you’re musically gifted or prefer to observe, music events can be great crowd-pleasers. For a bit of fun, you could host a talent show or Karaoke at a local venue, charging for participants and those coming along to watch.

  4. Leisure

    Whatever your hobby is, why not support us while doing it? You could put on a film in a local venue, this could be related to the local area, relevant to your target audience or a new release. If craft is your preferred hobby of choice, you could put on a craft event and provide materials for participants to make a particular item, such as a Christmas wreath, or why not do a craftathon and make as many items as you can in a selected amount of time?

    Suggestions: Film night, dancing competition, craft day,
