Get Everyone on Board:
There are several ways to make everyone aware that you are raising money. You need to launch with some noise. Get your fundraising in the newsletter, send out emails or put it on the website. Design a calendar and poster and post them all over the office. The more people that are aware of it the better. Before you do all this you must set up a JustGiving or GiveNGain page.
Getting management on board means you can offer lots of fun opportunities. For example, you could auction or raffle for a day off or an afternoon off. Or potentially get them to bring in baby photos to guess who is who.
Food and Drink:
This is, of course, one of the biggest and popular categories. There are lots of options for you. A bake sale, guess the number of sweets in a jar, a tuck shop, cheese tasting and finally Friday night drinks. There are lots of other options for food so just have a think about what people may want to join in with.
Why not host a team event. This could be as simple as a football or tennis tournament. Or another trusted option could be a quiz night. Other tested team events are a workplace treasure hunt, virtual challenges (run a marathon, cycle, or row without leaving the gym) or perhaps a mini Apprentice with the teams being given a small budget to see who can make the most money by the end of the day.
