You could wash cars, start an office swear box, run a sports sweepstake, organise a jumble sale or swap shop – the sky’s the limit!
But if you need some inspiration, here are some simple ideas to get you started.
Host a quiz night
Why not organise a quiz to get those brain cells working and some competition going? It could be a pop quiz or general knowledge, you could even include a ‘guess the baby’ round with embarrassing baby photos! Raise money by charging for entry, refreshments and having a collection, and ask local businesses to donate prizes.
Organise a bake sale
Why not organise a Great Brook bake sale? Thanks to Mary Berry, baking has never been so popular! Get your pinny on, and impress your colleagues or friends with sweet treats by running a bake sale.
Get active for Brook
Challenge yourself to run, cycle, swim, trek, hop, skip or jump and get active for Brook! Whether you’re a seasoned runner, a first time 5ker, mad enough take on open-air swimming in the freezing winter months or keen to get pedalling, we want you on our team! Get fit, push yourself and raise money to make a huge impact for young people in the UK. We’ll be here cheering you on all the way.
Hold an evening event
From black tie dinner to talent show, to club night or a disco, make it glamorous, make it quirky, just make sure people will want to come! Charge for tickets and hold a raffle to raise cash.
Dress down day
A dress down day is one of the easiest ways to fundraise. They’re simple to organise and it’s easy for everyone to take part. If everyone in your class or team paid £2 to wear their jeans for the day, how much could you make? What about the entire school or building?
Sponsoring someone to stay silent means that everyone gets some peace and quiet and you’ll raise loads of cash for Brook in the meantime. Whether you take on the challenge yourself or nominate a mate, get people to sponsor for every 15 minutes of silence. You could even run a sweepstake on how long the quiet will last to raise more!
Run a sweepstake
Appeal to your friends and family's sense of competition by running a sweepstake in aid of Brook. Guess to Give lets you run a sweepstake on big events such as Eurovision or the Grand National, or you can even set up your own.
Give as you live
If you'd like to do something but haven't got the time to organise an event, you can still help! It's really easy to fundraise for Brook without even leaving the comfort of your chair. Learn how you can make a difference as you search the internet or shop online here.
