Want to raise money for us but need a bit of inspiration?
Whether you hold a garage sale, bake cakes for your colleagues, organise a quiz night, cycle to work for a month, swim the English Channel, take part in a 24 hour golf marathon, organise a charity ball or embark on an epic walk…the choice is entirely yours!
Below are some of our favourite ideas, but there is literally no limit, be as creative as you like!
Hobbies to Help
Whatever it is you love to do, do for people with dementia. If you knit, sew, run, walk, swim, bake or make, set yourself a challenge and get your friends to sponsor you.
Do Something Hairy!
Whether it’s shaving off your hair or growing a moustache, we’re sure your friends and family would love to support you.
Organise a Coffee Morning
Organising a coffee morning is a great way to catch up with friends, family or colleagues as well as raising money for people living with dementia. Invite your guests, drink coffee, and eat cake—it couldn’t be easier!
Take Part in a Challenge Event
Why not set yourself a challenge and take on an adventure this year to do something you have always wanted to do?
From walking, running, and cycling, to jumping out of a plane—there are endless events that would offer you a rewarding challenge while you raise money. Click here to find out more.
Have a Car Boot Sale
Get your friends and family to have a clear out then sell the items for Dementia Adventure. You could use Ebay to sell your stuff.
Organise a Quiz Night
Organising a quiz night takes a bit of preparation but it’s a fun way to bring people together and raise money.
You can charge an entrance fee then get friends and family to help out by being quiz master and scorer.
Give Something Up
Whether its cigarettes, alcohol, chocolate or cake, a sponsored quit is a great way to feel good at the same time as raising money.
Organise a Raffle
You can organise a raffle as a standalone event or as part of a larger fundraising event such as a curry night, coffee morning or quiz night.
Don’t forget to ask local businesses if they can donate a prize.
Organise a Charity Ball
It might sound like a challenge, but it’s not as difficult as it sounds and a charity ball can be a great way to raise money.
You could include a charity auction. But don’t forget to budget properly.
Arrange a Karaoke Evening
This is always a favourite if you have friends who don’t mind being a bit silly.
Hold a Curry Night
Organise an evening for friends, family and colleagues in a local restaurant and charge friends an extra £5 on top of the menu cost.
Organise a Sporting Event
Arrange a five-a-side football match, netball tournament, charity golf day or another sporting activity.
This type of event is a fun fundraiser as a match between some friends, or a tournament with lots of teams. Raise funds by charging a player fee.
Arrange a Food or Wine Tasting Evening
Why not spend an evening tasting delicious food or sampling fine wines?
Ask attendees to pay an entry fee and try and get the food or wine donated from local businesses.
Organise a Cake Sale
Bake some cakes, invite some friends and charge for a slice! You could do this at home or at work.
Organise a BBQ or Dinner Party
Invite your friends and charge them £10 to attend.
