Fundraising ideas:

Sell stuff

Most kids love making cakes and almost all kids love eating cake. So, raise a tasty sum holding a bake sale in your school. Another great money spinner is selling Red Noses in your school, or your kids could also raise a few laughs and cash by selling a joke book.

Pay to participate

With all the talent shows and dressing up primary schools do for Red Nose Day, you’d think they were compulsory. So, why not get those wanna-be stars and dedicated dresser-upperers in your school to pay for the privilege? Or, to check whether anything has actually gone in, you could hold a quiz.

A Sponsored Something

Kids love getting sponsored. Maybe it’s repeating something fun over and over again or the pride in completing something special.

So, get yours to do a skip, space hop or dance-a-thon for starters… and then a collect-the-money-a-thon.

Where your money goes

Just £500 could enable a whole community living in a Kenyan slum to improve their health and sanitation by building a latrine that everyone can use.
