Do Something Different!

Rosie’s Rainbow Fund has signed up with Global Adventure Challenges to offer some exciting trips for 2012 and beyond. These are not all strenuous – they are for different fitness levels with Ben Nevis and the Sahara Desert Trek being the easiest. Trek details include: Ben Nevis, Kilimanjaro, Motorcycling around India, Sahara Desert Trek, Morocco, London to Paris Bike Ride & more.

Can you get a small group of friends together to do an event? The website http://www.globaladventurechallenges.com answers questions that you may have. A fundraising pack is available from us.

Neelam Mankoo of Maidenhead, Berkshire, did the Sahara Desert Trek for us in February 2012 and raised over £2300.

‘The trek was amazing. Tough but absolutely incredible. It has been a long year of fundraising and training, but it was well worth it’


Fundraising Ideas

There are lots of easy and fun ways to raise funds; here are just a few:

  1. For adults – buy some cloakroom tickets and a cheap bottle of champagne (often £10 from supermarkets). Have a raffle on a Friday at work (with some cakes perhaps?), deduct the cost of champagne and tickets and you may find that you have raised £30 – £40 pounds quite painlessly!
  2. If you have a local curry house or other favourite restaurant, speak to them about doing a set menu (normally £7 or £8 on a quiet night) and sell tickets to friends and colleagues for a bit more (say £12.50?). If you add in a raffle, we have found that we can easily make £300 plus if we get approx. 30 people along. Everyone always has a good time too.
  3. Can you speak to local companies/your workplace about donating a raffle prize and hold a raffle at work?
  4. Can you hold a stall or event at a local fair/car boot sale? We can often help with goods to sell.
  5. Are you involved in holding a school disco? You could sell glowsticks and glow jewellery to fund the cost of a therapy session for children in hospital. Glow jewellery is cheap to buy but sells well at events.
  6. Hold a fundraising dinner party or barbecue at home. Keep it simple. People are normally happy to pay £8 or so for a bowl of chilli and a social occasion. If you also hold a small raffle as well, you may find that you have raised in the region of £100 with 10/12 friends and had a great time too. Again we may be able to assist with some raffle prizes if you contact us beforehand.
  7. Could you hold a themed event of some kind in aid of the charity? – a music event, pamper night, a wine-tasting evening, a golf tournament, country walk, football match, quiz night?
  8. Popcorn Sales – Sell bags of popcorn during events. You can charge £1 a bag; with a 70p microwave bag you should get £4 worth of popcorn.
  9. Jumble Sale! These are back in fashion…making an average of £300 per session. They are normally over very quick (1.5 hours), will require lots of helpers – and publicity in press, local churches, groups etc is essential.
  10. Parents Night Out: Offer to sit a small group of children for a parents’ night out. Serve dinner, movies and have simple craft items for children to take home. Charge parents for sitting the kids, perhaps £10 per child?
