We’re bursting at the seams with fundraising ideas, check out our top ten tips below…

1. The icing on the cake…

Here’s a fundraiser to really whet your appetite! Throw a bake sale at work, school or gather some of your friends for a coffee morning? After all, who doesn’t love cake? Ready, set…bake!

2. Rise to the challenge…

Are you a chatterbox? Hold a sponsored silence or wake-athon? Feeling more daring? Sign up to one of our challenge events here.

3. Party time…

Are you the life and soul of the party? Invite your friends round and have a big bash in aid of WellChild. Pop on your party hats, bring out those party games and ask your guests to dig deep for WellChild! Turn it into an outdoor event by having a BBQ or choose a theme for the party.

4. Dress to impress…

Why not get you and your colleagues to dress up for the day. Pick a theme. Superheroes? Favourite film character? What you wanted to be when you grew up!? Or dress head to toe in WellChild purple. Get people donating in order to take part. Pick the theme and watch the donations pour in!

5. Quiz night…

Hold a quiz night at your local pub or village hall with all proceeds going to WellChild. Why not put on some entertainment too and make a night of it.

6. Get your trainers on…

While the weather’s nice, get your friends and family involved in an obstacle course, asking them to donate to take part – the person with the best time is crowned the winner!

7. Roll the dice…

Feeling a little less energetic? Get out your old children’s classics and have a games night. Invite family and friends to come along and ask everyone to donate.

8. Uncover your hidden talent…

Hold a talent show at your school, college or village hall. Can you hold a tune? Like to dance? Pull out your best party trick and raise money for WellChild at the same time!

9. One man’s trash…

…is another man’s treasure. Sell your unwanted possessions on eBay and raise money for WellChild at the same time.

Looking sunny this weekend, why not do a car boot in aid of WellChild?

10. Walk

Don your walking boots, gather your friends and walk for WellChild. Set your own challenge and ask people to sponsor you! Whether you walk 10k or 100 miles…each step will make a difference to the lives of seriously ill children across the UK.

Still not sure what to do? Our fundraising team is bursting with fundraising ideas. Give us a call at 01242 530007 or email fundraising@wellchild.org.uk.
