Have we peaked your interest yet? Keep reading for some top tips and ideas on how you and your team can raise funds and win the challenge.

 

Ideas and Inspiration to start your fundraising challenge

1. Have one of our collection tins in your place of work for all loose change. Get your team to empty their pockets at the end of each week!

2. Get baking and have a cake sale. Everyone loves a good bit of baking and of course eating! Why not turn it into a coffee morning?

3. Set up a quiz night or games evening. Who doesn't love a quiz and a bit of healthy competition? You could even hand out prizes to the winners.

4. Working from home? Why not ask your team to donate the cost of a takeaway coffee each week? Or set up a weekly zoom fitness session each week – your staff each pay to join in and you donate the funds to us. Great to keep the team moving, in touch with each other and is great for team spirit.

5. Want a more physical challenge?? Why not get sponsored and:

  • Take on a zip wire challenge
  • Host a dance marathon
  • Skydive, bungee jump/abseil off a building!

 

Donation Week

Host a donation week for your staff. Encourage them to have a big sort out at home and donate all unwanted items to the charity.

We accept all good quality clothes and household goods, pictures, mirrors, table lamps and also furniture and electrical goods.

  • For every bin bag you fill with clothes, we will add £3 to your Corporate total
  • For every large item of furniture you donate, we will add £5 to your Corporate total
  • Once you have arranged your collection week and all the items have been brought into the workplace we can arrange a van to come and collect the items from you. A great photo and social media opportunity
