MORNING OR AFTERNOON TEA

Whether it is in the office, at home or in a park, this is a nice and easy way to get your friends together and raise some money. Get all of your friends to bring a dish, or get baking yourself and ask for a donation for attendance. A few fun fundraising games are a nice and easy way to bring in some extra support.

SPONSORSHIP

Ask 5 friends to sponsor you for $20 each! Or ask a company to sponsor you and in return you will add their logo to your jersey with pride?  

AFTER WORK DRINKS

Get a little bit social with your fundraising. Most workplaces have after work drinks every few weeks. Ask your work if they would support you by asking for a donation for entry and letting you run quick, easy games on the night that require a donation for participation.

HOLDING A STALL

It doesn’t matter if you are a baking whizz, a crafty genius or very good at asking people to support you – this one is for you. Do some research into local markets, find your product and sell! Remember to have a donation box on the counter – although not everyone will want to buy your products, still give them the opportunity to support you! 

BBQ

Who doesn’t love a sausage sizzle? Many local businesses will allow charity groups to hold a sausage sizzle outside their stores. Or get your local sports team involved and see if you can take over their BBQ for the day! Remember to approach your local stores for donations of sausages and bread?.
