Primary Fundraising Ideas
There are endless ways to fundraise, but to get you thinking, here's Barney from Blue Peter with his top ten fundraising ideas.
1. Star makers - put on a talent show and ask for donations. You might discover the next big star.
“I can play piano with my nose – my top tune is ‘When The Saints Go Marching In.’”- Barney
2. Paper clippers - pay to race against classmates to assemble the longest line of paperclips you can in 15 minutes. Give a prize to the winner from our online shop.
3. Space hoppers - organise a fun run with a twist – you have to complete the course on a space-hopper, on piggy-back or jumping in a sack.
4. Fancy dressers - come to school dressed as your hero, or create your own theme from your favourite films or books.
6. Coin collectors - fill colourful cardboard tubes with £1 coins and donate them at the end of term. Or fill an outline of Pudsey with coins.
7. Prize winners - sell raffle tickets to win a grand prize, and draw the winner during assembly.
8. Song writers - can you sing as well as One Direction? Write your own song for Pudsey using our activity sheet.
10. Game players - host a kids vs. teachers sports event, and play wacky games like three-legged football.
11. School fayre - who will be the best at apple bobbing, in the fancy dress competition or guessing how many sweets are in a jar?
12. Something for the parents - host a quiz or race night. Ask for donations to enter – all for BBC Children in Need!
13. Sshh! - have a sponsored silence day – for the whole class. Can you get through the whole day without speaking?
14. Games day - donate to bring in your favourite games from home and see who wins the most.
15. Dance off - have a school disco – who throws the best moves on the dancefloor?
