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, (keep it in the work freezer) then serve up those delicious ice creams after lunch and charge a £2 donation. You could even get creative and make Ice lollies at home with summer fruits and berries. It’s a fantastic way to raise money and keep cool. Why not combine the ice creams with your summer BBQ or Mini Festival to raise that little bit extra all on one day!

Mini Festival

Grab some friends, any local bands you know (or a loud stereo) and charge for entry and drinks! You could even combine this with your BBQ! There is nothing better on a summer’s evening than listening to music and enjoying good food with friends and family. So go on get that BBQ fired up and Music on!

Summer BBQ

Everybody loves a BBQ... so simply invite some friends round, however, on this occasion, charge them £5-£10 a head to put in your fundraising pot! It’s a great opportunity for a get together in the sun whilst doing that all-important FUNdraising!

Car wash

Offer to wash work colleagues’, friends’ and family members’ cars for a minimum donation... get your bra T-Shirt or decorated bra on! How can they refuse!?

Summer Fete

Perfect for a sunny summer afternoon... bake some cakes, make some jam, create homemade crafts and your stall is on to a winner. Don’t forget Walk the Walk bracelets, collection tubs and balloons– all available from our WalkWear Shop.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

A great fundraiser if you have children! Organise a picnic in the park for families, ask the children (and the parents!) to bring their favourite teddy bear and charge a small fee to come along.

Garden Sports Day

Let your competitive side come out as you race against your friends... tug of war, egg & spoon, etc. Have a fixed prize for the winner and charge an entry fee! 

Dog Walking

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

Yogathon

After a summer of eating fabulous foods at picnics and BBQs, you may want to keep in shape… a Yogathon is a great way to keep toned and fit. Great for the supple ones amongst you... all you need is some eager participants and an instructor willing to donate his/her time to support vital breast cancer causes.

Zumbathon

If Yoga is not quite your thing why not step it up with a fun Zumbathon. Love a good dance? Then, this is a great fundraiser for you! Organise a Zumba session... approach some instructors to donate their time, hire a hall, charge an entry fee and let the party begin! If you still have the energy, why not throw in a raffle too?

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!

Treasure Hunt

This one doesn’t just have to be for children - it’s a great one for the big kids too! Spend some time creating your clues and charge your friends/family to hunt the ‘treasure’!

Picnic Hamper

Make up a healthy picnic hamper... perhaps ask people to donate items... and then raffle it off at work or at your fundraising event.
