Fundraising Ideas....

Ideas for Fundraisers for you


Here are some ideas to start you off with. Feel Free to get creative and come up with your own fundraising idea.  We would love you to help.

Bake Sale

Bag Pack

 Be sure to sign up early as some supermarkets are booked months in advance for bag packing. Also please note any compliances the supermarket may require in relation to age of those doing the bag packing.

Table Quiz

Charge per team and have a good mix of questions. You could have a round about your town or county, one on music, photos of personalities, , general knowledge, dingbats, sports, flags, missing words, and local history.

Have spot prizes for the best answers, best team name and an overall prize for 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams.


A raffle is often held in conjunction with another  fundraising event. Ask for donations from parents and local businesses and price your tickets according to the range of prizes on offer.

Treasure Hunt

Whether its in a school grounds or a car Treasure hunt around your local area – with one clue leading to another  - its a great one for all the family.

Sponsored Event

From a sponsored cycle, sponsored swim to a dance-a-thon or a  skip-a-thon get everybody active and having fun.  Each child tries to get sponsorship to take part.

School Bring & Buy Sale

Another popular fundraising idea where families donate their unwanted items and these are sold on the day. Add some fun with  other fun fundraising ideas such as nail painting, fortune telling, hook a duck etc.

Calendars/Wall Planners

We all need calendars and wall planners to track family activities. Schools can team up with companies who create these to fundraise and sell advertising space on the calendar as well as sell the calendars in local shops.

 Fashion Show

They take a lot of organisation, but if you have a good team in place, can be a great fundraiser.  On the night there is also an opportunity to have a raffle

Strictly Come Dancing Event

This has become a popular fundraiser for schools and clubs. Parents are sponsored to take part in a dance routine that is then judged with the best dancers going through to the grand final. 

Non Uniform Day

Each student brings a set amount on the non-uniform day, so a great way to fundraise if you have a particular target in mind.

Sponsored Silence

The bliss of silence!  - for some strange reason many parents give willingly to sponsored silence events.


Everything from old mobile phones to batteries can be used to fundraise for schools and clubs while also helping charities.

School Cookbook

Students and staff submit their all time family favourite recipes, along with a photo and this is turned into a cookbook.

Film in School Hall

You could show some old classics that many children may not have seen already.

Pick your movie and fix a entry donation fee and just like the cinema sell some sweet shop grub and drinks.

Games Day or Evening

  It could be a board games day, lego building day, jigsaw day or you could hire giant games like Jenga or Connect 4.  Entry fees raise the money.



If your school or club have talented musicians or an amazing choir, run a concert for friends and family to attend and charge a small fee.
