November Fundraising Ideas

As the trees don their finery for Autumn, now is the time for cosy indoor fundraisers. Invite a few friends round and make the most of the darker evenings!

It’s not too late to organise a Bonfire Night fundraiser – sell hot soup and sparklers to get your fundraiser off to a twinkling start!

Christmas Gift Parties

As the dreaded ‘C’ time approaches crack on with 2023’s fundraising by inviting folk round for a get together as you do your Christmas shopping in front of the fire! There are many companies who sell their goods via ‘party plan’ like the Tupperware parties of old. Jump on board yourself and become an agent, or invite a local representative to your home for commission.

Of course, if you make any sort of craft, this is an opportunity to sell your stuff too! And don’t forget to have a raffle and ask for donations for any refreshments you serve!

Come Dine with me

You’ve seen the TV programme right? It’s great fun, and a good socialiser when the weather gets cooler, and there’s no need to risk being in a large crowded venue! Decide how many people are taking part and then set the dates. Everyone takes a turn at cooking a 3 course meal and invites the others, who score the meal and entertainment out of 10. The person with the highest score wins!

So where’s the fundraising in this? Well, everyone taking part pays a donation per meal. You can decide how much beforehand, or, alternatively they can pay what they think the meal is worth!  Don’t forget to have some little ‘extras’ too, like a raffle, a guess the name of the bear competition, a quiz sheet or a book stall for example; the choice is yours!

Online or ‘actual’ Quiz

The lockdown certainly showed us that we don’t need to hire an expensive hall to raise money playing a quiz! Quizzes surged in popularity so jump on the bandwagon and arrange one either online, or hire a hall in the traditional way. Don’t forget to ask for a charity rate and maximise the event by having little extras to bolster than fundraising! You could also ask your local pub if they will support you with their quiz, or let you use the pub free of charge. You can get some free quiz questions by emailing [email protected]

Games Night – Monopoly anyone?

Light the fire, get some bottles of fizz and snacky bits, crack out the board games and invite your friends round for a cosy night in building hotels, deciding whodunnit or thinking of as many words as possible! Charge an entrance fee and have extras on the side to help boost your fundraising coffers!

Online Auctions

Auctions are a great way to raise money but you do need some nice prizes. These can be ‘real’ things like a nice Christmas Hamper, dinner for 2 at a local restaurant (speak to local suppliers for prizes) or people willing to donate their time or ‘promise.’ Prizes people have given in the past have been cooking for a dinner party for 8, painting a fence, loaning their canal barge for a weekend and writing a CV! Make up lovely bundles that people will want to bid on and run the auction for a week updating all the bidders as you go. Mind though, it can get very competitive!


Here’s another way to raise money as you shop! Over 5,000 retailers will donate to Walk the Walk as you shop online, so register here and do your bit to make a difference! So far we’ve raised over £330 since last year through easyfundraising! Read all about it here.

All you need do is register for Amazon Smile, add Smilematic to your browser, and you will be automatically redirected to Smile every time you log on to Amazon! Amazon will donate 0.5% as you shop and it costs you nothing! Read more about it here.
