Breast cancer charity September Fundraising Ideas

Grab what’s left of the summer to get that fundraising flying to raise money for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk!

It’s back to school and back to work... plan a few fun activities to welcome everyone, meeting old friends and making new!

Food glorious food!

If you’re a dab hand in the kitchen, the old favourites never disappoint! Whether it’s cake sales, hot soup or curry lunches, your colleagues will be keen to sample your goodies and make a donation to your fundraising page or tub. You can rent a tub here. Or get a QR code linked to your fundraising page by contacting [email protected].

Wear Pink to work or school!

Everyone loves the chance to wear something a bit different! You know the drill, everyone pays for the privilege of wearing pink for the day, and the ones who forget or don’t want to wear pink, pay twice as much! Be really wacky and make it fancy dress!

Raffle or Tombola

With people working from home these activities came to a grinding halt, but if you are now back in the workplace, putting together a raffle or tombola and selling tickets to your workmates is guaranteed to bring some fun back to work! You could get prizes by asking your friends or local businesses (you can get a letter of authorisation from [email protected]). Try having a theme to make it extra special!

Start planning for the C word!

I know, Christmas in September? But actually, now’s the time to start making those Christmas crafts such as tree decorations, cards, crackers, table centres, Christmas cakes, decorated candles... anything that you enjoy making! Sell them at Christmas fairs or via Facebook Marketplace.

Putting on a Play

Calling all you am drammers! With theatres now opening up, am dram groups the length and breadth of the country are deciding what plays to stage now that they are able to tread the boards again. Previous MoonWalker Gail Young had such a fantastic and funny time that she wrote a play about her experience called Cheshire Cats. It follows a group of MoonWalkers as they train for and take part in the iconic MoonWalk. It will wring your heartstrings and make you laugh out loud! Use the performances to make collections for Walk the Walk and find out more here.
