Thank you for choosing to support WUTH Charity. Even though you have decided to fundraise, making the final decision on exactly what to do can be tricky!
So here is our fundraising alphabet - hopefully there is something for everyone!
Auction - Ask people to collect items they don’t want or need (that are worth selling), and auction everything off! Not only is this a great way to raise money for WUTH Charity, but also to make space, and let someone else enjoy something you don’t use.
Bike ride - Be sponsored to cycle a certain number of miles with your friends; there are a number of local, national and international organised events you can participate in - have a look at our events page for more information.
Car wash - Get your bucket and sponge out and charge people a few pounds to wash their cars – weather permitting!
'Dress Down Day' - Whether it’s at work or school, invite everyone to join in and donate some money to wear casual clothes for the day.
Easter egg hunt - Pay to enter - and why not make an Easter bonnet dress code compulsory?
'Fancy Dress Day' - Pay a pound and be whoever you want for the day!
Garden party - Have a garden party, perhaps with games that your guests give a donation to play.
Hair shaving - Can you brave the shave? Whether it’s just a beard or your whole head, get sponsored to have some hair shaved off!
'It's a Knockout' challenge - Team up, take an entry fee and create your own 'It's a Knockout' obstacle course.
'Jeans at Work Day' - Get your colleagues involved. Pay a pound and wear your jeans!
Karaoke - Ask people to pay a couple of pounds to jump on the microphone and belt out their favourite songs!
'Ladies' Day' - A popular fundraising idea is throwing a ladies’ day or night; as simple as getting your female friends together for a catch up, and get everyone to bring an item of food or something to drink, as well as donating a couple of pounds to charity. Looking for a bigger challenge? Why not host an afternoon tea at a local venue and sell tickets?
Murder mystery night - Whodunnit?! Get your friends round for a delicious meal and solve the mystery. Charge to guess the murderer…
Name the teddy - Name a teddy and get everyone to make a small donation. The winner gets the teddy!
Open garden - Proud of your roses? Take admission fees for WUTH Charity and hold an open garden - a great one for the summer!
Photography - Donate your photography skills and ask clients to give a donation directly to WUTH Charity.
Quiz night - Download a fun quiz online and charge your friends or colleagues to take part.
Raffle - Ask around for someone to donate a prize for a raffle, then charge everyone £1 per ticket. For more advice on how to run a raffle, contact us below.
Sponsored silence - Shhhhhh. No talking. Get sponsored for your silence.
Treasure hunt - Get people to donate some sweet treats, create a treasure map and hide the treats. Charge people to take part, following your map to find the prizes!
Unwanted presents - Everyone receives presents they don’t particularly like on special occasions. Ask people to bring in their unwanted presents and sell them to each other – proceeds to WUTH Charity.
Variety show - Challenge your friends to unearth those hidden talents and hold a variety show.
Walk - Don’t fancy running? A sponsored walk is a popular choice with those who don’t fancy taking part in a sponsored run! Get your friends together and organise your own walk.
Xbox tournament - Ask everyone to donate some money and take part in a competitive Xbox (or PlayStation!) marathon.
YOLO challenge - You Only Live Once. What's on your bucket list? Inspire others and get sponsored to do something amazing.
Zip wire challenge - Take the plunge. Be sponsored to do a zip wire ride. Why not do it with friends?
