Continuing our blog series of fundraising ideas, today is brought to you by the letter E!
Whether you’re a first time or regular fundraiser, we all need a little inspiration sometimes. So, to give you a helping hand, we are putting all of our favourite fundraising ideas together in a handy series of blog posts!
Easter Egg Hunt – If it’s Easter time and you’re trying to find a way to keep the kids entertained, you might organise an Easter egg hunt. However, you could make it into a bigger event and invite lots of people to partake for donations to your favourite charity!
Easter Party – To keep kids and parents entertained at Easter, host an Easter party with an Easter egg hunt, pin the tail on the Easter bunny, and an Easter egg piñata game. Lots of fun and opportunity to fundraise for charity!
Eating Competition – Challenge your friends to an eating competition in support of your favourite charity! Think of games such as “who is the last one to lick their lips after eating a sugary doughnut”, or bake a variety of cakes or dishes and see who can guess the correct ingredients in each dish!
Easyfundraising – Visit this amazing website where you can do all your weekly shopping, as well shopping for clothes, holidays and more, where you can also do a bit of fundraising! Check out their website on the following link, and don’t forget to select Metabolic Support UK as your chosen charity (!): https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/
Exercise Challenge – Pick a sport and set yourself a goal! This could be aiming to complete 100 km of cycling, running or swimming in a month; aiming to run your first 5k; or something completely different! Whatever you choose, get people to sponsor you and to push you towards achieving your goal!
Experience Challenge – This could be a variety of things, such as a sponsored sky-dive or bungee jump. Or you could challenge yourself to conquer a fear. For example, scared of spiders? Why not get sponsored to hold a tarantula and conquer that fear? Challenge yourself to embrace a new experience!
Some of these activities are great as stand-alone events, and some can be run together to support a bigger event.
We hope this post has given you some food for thought! All of your fundraising is very much appreciated and helps us to continue our vital work to raise awareness and provide bespoke support to those affected by Inherited Metabolic Disorders.
