Fundraising ideas:

Sell stuff

The best thing about selling stuff to raise money is that everyone gets something out of it. You could ask your kids to put on their chefs’ hats and hold a bake sale for a tasty sum… or put on their business hats and hold a bring-and-buy sale.

Fundraising ideas:

Have a collection

Young kids love playing shop, so get them selling stuff to raise money this Red Nose Day. Cakes, jokes or our new Dinosesaur Red Noses are easy to shift and if you're looking for customers, well what are parents for?

Fundraising ideas:

A sponsored anything

Kids love doing them and they’ll leave parents really proud. So, why not get your kids doing a hop-a-thon, a bounce-a-thon or any other a-thon you can think-of-a-thon. Alternatively, a good old sponsored walk, dressed up, or in red, is a great way to bring in the cash.

Look who's fundraised

Bravo to Broomloan Nursery in Glasgow. Staff joined parents and children to raise £795 with a sponsored walk, skip and run around the new football pitch. What a hat trick!
