Organise your own fundraiser
Organising your own fundraiser can be a fun and rewarding experience
If you would like to hold a fundraising event to help Camphill Blair Drummond, we’d be delighted to help. From the provision of fundraising materials, PR, support and guidance and suggestions as to what type of event you can host, we can work together to ensure that your event is a fantastic success. Here are a few good fundraising ideas to get you going:
Coffee Mornings, Lunches and Dinners
We all love a natter and what better way to spend our time than chatting over a mug of coffee with friends. Pop some cakes in the oven and invite your friends over to while away a pleasant morning.
A charity lunch or a “Come Dine with Me” dinner is another great way to get together with friends and raise funds for your favourite charity.
For those who like to do things on a grand scale, why not organise a charity dinner dance? It’s a great excuse to glam up for the evening!
If all the family want to help, then you could dine in for a month: no meals out, no afternoon coffee trips, no takeaways. Donate the money you save to Camphill Blair Drummond.
Performances and concerts
Everyone loves music. Whether it’s the sweet voices of children singing in a choir or some enthusiastic guitarists rolling out their favourite tunes in a bar, this is a popular choice for everyone to enjoy.
Special occasions are marked with special gifts. What could be a greater gift than giving to a cause that is close to your heart? In lieu of a wedding or birthday gift, why not ask for a donation towards a cause that is special to you?
Pay your respects to a loved one with a donation or a fundraising event in aid of a charity that meant so much to them.
Sales and Auctions
Raise funds by holding a charity sale or see who is the highest bidder at a charity auction. We don’t always have to sell objects. Do you have a special talent or hobby which you could share with others? Perhaps you are the next Jamie Oliver. If you have the time, why not auction your services?
Some fun ideas for further inspiration:
- Dance displays
- Talent shows
- Spend the night in a haunted house
- Sponsored silence
- Host a quiz
- Grow a beard or moustache (men only!)
- Organise a murder mystery evening
- Hold a movie night with friends. Choose your favourite film, cook the popcorn and invite your friends around for a night in.
- Sponsored read
- Guess the baby competition. A fun event for clubs, offices and schools.
- Host a fashion show
- Go to work in pyjamas – we dare you!
