Support Us Fundraise Fundraising ideas Hold an event Below are a few event ideas to get you started, no matter how big or small, events are a great way of raising funds as well as awareness. Bake sale - Bake your way to fundraising success! You could hold a bake sale at work, school, college, your local community/village hall or even in your own home inviting friends and family to come along. TIP: ensure that all bakes and treats are clearly labelled to enable those with any special dietary requirements to make informed decisions on what to buy! Coffee mornings - Hosting a coffee morning is a great way to fundraise. Collecting donations is much easier when you're offering something people want anyway! What better way to fundraise whilst having a coffee, slice of cake and catch up with friends, family or colleagues! If you're looking to host outside of the workplace, why not tie in with your local Support Group? Dinner Party - The great thing about a dinner party is that you can host all year round, and can be adapted to appeal to most people. You can invite friends round to your house, hire a venue, don't forget, some local restaurants might be happy to help by offering a deal on set menus! Open Garden / Day - The perfect opportunity to show off your garden in full bloom whilst raising some money. Are you proud of your garden, does your house has a colourful history? Then why not open your doors for a small entry fee and host an open garden/house. With the kitchen close by, it will be easy to raise extra funds by offering some light refreshments. Quiz night - The local pub, village hall, sports centre or even your garden are all venues suitable for hosting a quiz. Once you have decided on the best option for you, get working on those questions, there are lots available online! You host the night and guests pay to play. Knitting competition - How long is that scarf? Challenge your friends to a knit-off and why not sell or auction your woollies afterwards too.
