Here are a few suggestions of ways you could help raise much needed funds for the women, children and young people who access our services:-
Dress Down Day
Organise a dress down day at work (with permission of the boss!) and get every member of staff to donate for the privilege.
Adventure seekers among you may wish to organise a sponsored zipslide to raise funds. Why not get a group of friends together and slide for charity? Contact Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre for year-round zipsliding.
Arrange a bake sale at work, school event or church charity drive. Everyone loves home baking and is a cheap way to fundraise. Even those that cannot cook can buy from a shop and sell as their own!!
Trivia Night or Dinner Party
Hold a trivia night or dinner party in your home. Invite your family and friends and charge for entry.
You could also organise a sweepstake for an upcoming sporting event. There are plenty to take part in from football to tennis or the Grand National. Simply award the winner 50% of the total takings and the other 50% can go to your chosen fundraising cause.
Get your kids involved and have a car wash in your local area.Children love the idea of fundraising. Not only does it teach them a lot of essential skills such as organisation, money handling, responsibility and planning, but it also shows them that it’s an honourable thing to raise cash for those less fortunate than themselves.
When it comes to getting wild and wacky with fundraising, creation is the most important factor along with organisation. The better your idea, the easier it is to be passionate about it and create something fun that will inspire others to take part or to support your cause. Don’t be afraid to try new things either. If you think you have a wild or wacky idea, so long as it’s not offending anyone, why not give it a go. As always, if it’s taking place publicly, check with your local authority for any permits you may need and always act responsibly.
If you wish to hold your own event, either email email@example.com or call us on 0141 553 2022.
