At work

Dress down Friday: Ask everyone to wear casual clothes at work on a Friday for a £1 charge. It really lightens the mood, and gets everyone working together ready for the weekend.

Skills auction: Offer your skills and services to the highest bidder. You could offer to get your colleague’s lunch, jazz up their PowerPoint presentations or recycle their unwanted paper.

Email-free day: Have an email-free day at work. Everyone pays a fee to take part, and pays a fine if they break the rules.

Who’s the baby? Ask everyone to bring in a photo of themselves as a baby, then charge people £2 to guess the identities, with a prize for the winner.

At school

Non uniform day: Ditch the school uniform and pay a small amount to go to school in casual clothes for a day. Dress-down days are simple but effective ways of raising funds, especially if you decide to ask everyone to dress according to a theme.

Sponsored Mini Marathon: Ask the children to run/walk a specific distance and collect sponsorship money – it’s a great way to keep fit and raise money for a good cause.

Pupils v Teachers: Hold a quiz morning where pupils pit their knowledge against their teachers’. You can choose any subject to quiz people on.

At home

Sell something: You can do something useful with unwanted items you have at home – sell them and donate the proceeds to Baby Lifeline! You could organise a car boot sale or use the internet.

Let’s do lunch: Host a lunch for your friends and ask them for donations – around the same amount of money they would have spent if they had dined out at a restaurant.

With Others

If you’re a member of a group or club form a committee of helpers and organise a really big event.

  • Organise a sponsored walk.
  • Have a golf day.
  • Hold a ball or charity dinner.
  • Organise a concert.
