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.
