Fundraising tips

All schools, not just those outside the 70km / 44 miles grant zone, might want to consider raising some extra cash to help pay for teacher cover, travel and even spending money. In our experience, schools that raise a little bit of extra money have a much more relaxing experience at the event, not having to stress about how much things cost, or how much they have spent getting there. It really should be all about the experience of taking part and attending so here are a few fundraising ideas we know have worked for many schools over the years:

  • Car boot sales
  • Sponsored events like walks or silences
  • Wear your own clothes to school day
  • Cake sales
  • Seasonal fêtes/ fairs / bazaars
  • Balloon races and releases
  • Parties and discos

You might even want to think about approaching local companies, especially those in the industrial or technology sector, to ask them for a lump sum sponsorship. They can then use this partnership to get positive PR in local newspapers.
