Fundraising at work

  • Office raffle: Holding a raffle is a traditional and popular fundraising method. Spread the word that you’ll be hosting a raffle and sell tickets at lunchtime. You could also encourage colleagues to buy tickets for their family and friends and event donate some prizes!

  • Lunchtime TED talk: If you or any of your colleagues have a special skill or experience you’d like to share, host a TED talk at lunchtime with a donation to attend.

  • Orange heart

    Wear it Sense: You could ask the office to come dressed in orange and purple for the day to show your support for #TeamSense.

  • Utilise your email signature: Once your JustGiving page is set up, make sure to insert the link to your page in your email signature. This will give your colleagues and others an extra nudge to donate.

  • Great British office bake off: Get your baking hats on and your mixing bowls out, it’s time to see who will be crowned star baker in your office! Why not hold a bake sale at lunchtime with all the donations going towards your fundraising.

  • Office Olympics: There’s nothing better than some healthy competition. Try speed typing, synchronised chair swivelling or elastic bank flicking
