Ticket sales are an important part of many fundraisers but you can increase the money raised as well as increase the fun level by having additional games, stalls and attractions! You’d be amazed the difference it can make adding on a few fundraising extras!
These can range from the old favourite of a raffle to guess the weight of the cake or the number of sweets in a jar, find the hidden treasure and so many more!
Don't just take our word for it... Angela Banks recently posted on Facebook about her fundraising success...
“Very happy! I ran a ‘Guess the number of sweets in a jar’ at the pub tonight and with very little notice I managed to raise £82.81.”
Major fundraisers can be enhanced by holding an auction. This can either be a live auction with an auctioneer or a silent auction. Whichever format you opt for good prizes are a must, so it’s worth approaching local businesses and organisations for donations. You can group smaller prizes together to make a great one and get that bidding going!
Tombola (bottle or otherwise)
Heads and tails game (great for after dinner)
Live auction (with an auctioneer)
Silent auction (the amount of the bid is written down)
Sealed bid auction (the highest bid in a sealed envelope wins)

Guess the number of sweets in the jar
