Exercise brainpower for a fun evening at a quiz night. Simply charge each team per ticket, which could include a takeaway meal – maybe fish and chips – at half-time, which is delivered to your venue. It can be a fantastic evening if everyone brings their own drinks – and ketchup – and a raffle to round off the evening is always a great idea, with donated prizes gathered up prior to the event from local people and businesses.
Fundraising is something for everyone, no matter what age. A sponsored silence could be a wonderful challenge for a class of children and experienced knitters and crocheters could hold a sponsored event to make a wonderful array of items which could also be sold to raise additional funding.
Something that we may not want to consider, but forward planning is always beneficial, is adding a donation to charity in your will, which is a way to ensure your estate is appointed as you wish.
A final reminder to maximise any donation is to ensure, if you are eligible, to add Gift Aid whereby a charity can reclaim the tax on any donation given to them by UK taxpayers, making each pound donated worth £1.25. Thank you for your support.
