Summer is here and it’s the perfect time to have some ‘fun in the sun’ whilst fundraising! Take advantage of the balmy weather and longer days... check out some sizzling summer fundraising ideas below.

Ice Cream Treats

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! What a great way to cool down on those hot summer days. You could buy some fancy cones and tubs of ice cream, then set up a stall in your front garden to tempt passers-by and invited friends and neighbours. Serve delicious ice creams and sundaes sprinkled with chopped nuts, pieces of fresh fruit and whatever takes your fancy! You could even get even more creative and make Ice lollies at home with summer fruits and berries. It’s a fantastic way to raise money and keep cool.

Takeaway Summer BBQ

Everybody loves a BBQ... and what could be easier than cooking up a storm and selling your chargrilled goodies to friends and neighbours. Simply flyer, email and facebook everyone with your menu, the date and time and charge them a donation to put in your fundraising pot! Who wouldn’t love a barbie with no washing up? What a great opportunity for some FUNdraising in a socially distanced way!

Car wash

With many car washes now closed, you could offer to wash neighbours’, friends’ and family members’ cars for a minimum donation... What a great way to cool down and earn some cash!

Dog Walking

Offer your services to your dog loving friends and neighbours in return for a top up to your fundraising total. It's great training exercise for you... and the dogs!

Fresh Homemade Lemonade

Ask family, friends, neighbours and workmates for a donation in exchange for a refreshing glass of homemade lemonade on a hot day! If you have some help, you could offer delicious smoothies too... check out these yummy Walk the Walk recipes! 

Entertain the children!

With many people still working from home, parents are struggling to keep the children occupied while they work. Devise some garden activities for the children to keep them busy* and out of Mum and Dad’s hair. See below for some ideas. A donation to your page will be a great exchange!

* there is no need to come into close contact with the children. If you do remember to socially distance.

  • A Garden Treasure or Scavenger Hunt
  • Hopscotch
  • Skipping games
  • Hide and Seek
  • Simon Says
  • Musical Statues
  • Garden Cricket
  • Jacks

Garden Watering

Keep your neighbourhood beautiful by watering your neighbours’ gardens while they’re away. No-one wants to come home to dead plants when they’ve spent a lot of time and effort making their gardens bloom, so watch your kind offer bear lots of cash fruit!
