Holding an event to help raise money for NPF If your workplace would like to hold an event to help raise money for NPF and at the same time bring a team at work together, feel free to contact our fundraising/ sponorship co-ordinator to obtain an authority to raise funds. Below are some ideas for events you can hold at work or as an after work function.
- Brush the dust off your joggers Start a running team and feel the buzz of completing a marathon. Not up to running marathon? Why not set the date, set the distance, and get sponsored to walk!
- Prefer to crawl? What could be better than a pub crawl! Charge each person to attend, hire or have a mini bus donated for the evening and you could even have a bucket with the group that is ‘crawling’ and ask other patrons in the bars to pop their change into the bucket to help support your efforts for NPF.
- The ball’s in your court! Why not hold a baseball/cricket/golf/basketball/netball/tennis/football tournament? How do you raise money? Charge entrance fees of course!
- Bullseye! For the not so energetic, how about a darts match or a game of dominoes down the pub? You could also have a balloon board and have amounts hidden in each balloon. Charge each person a small fee to play and then they aim a dart at the balloon and if they pop a balloon they donate the amount in the balloon. You must make sure each person participating is aware of the highest amount and agrees to this prior to entering.
- Anyone for a quick dip? Try a sponsored swim.
- Love cooking? Why not hold an all you can eat BBQ or buffet for your workmates/friends/associates – they’ll be happy to make a donation and scoff as much food as they can!
- Naughty but nice! Do away with the diet, get sponsored and challenge others to devour as many cream cakes as possible.
- Still a big kid? Eat jelly beans with chop sticks – how many can you cram in a certain period of time? Encourage others to guess and run a sweepstake!
- Feeling a bit portly? Shed your kilo’s whilst raising money for the NPF. Take part in a sponsored slim!
- How many grams? Bake a cake and run a competition to guess the weight. Then you can sell slices of the cake to staff for morning or afternoon tea with coffee or tea.
- Host a dinner party Get the food and wine donated or ask people to bring a course each and make a donation.
- Roll back the years! Hold a 20s party, a 50s rock n’ roll dance or an 80s disco – pick your favourite decade and watch the money come rolling in for the NPF as you charge people for a ticket.
- Christmas cracker Why not make a donation to the NPF rather than sending Christmas cards this year?
- Still got a full head of hair? Shave it off for NPF! For the not so brave, try a beard or moustache instead!
- No hair? Get sponsored to wear a silly wig for a week. The more sponsors the more money you can raise.
