Sands, spring fundraising

Here's a range of fundraising ideas you can do over the spring and Easter season!

These Spring and Easter Themed fundraisers are ‘eggsactly’ what you’re looking for!

1. GUESS THE NUMBER OF EASTER EGGS

Fill a large sweetie jar with mini eggs. Ask friends and family to pay one pound to guess the number of eggs inside the jar – and the closest guess wins all the eggs!

2. EASTER BONNET COMPETITION 

Get creative this Easter by organising an Easter bonnet competition at work/with friend and family! Ask your colleagues or friends/family to make their own bonnets from anything they have at home then pay a suggested donation of £2 to wear your hat for the day and give a donated prize for the best hat!

3. BE AN EGG HEAD

Why not shave your head for Sands and be a real life egg head! Set a target to hit (aim high!) and then get friends/family/colleagues to sponsor you. If they reach your target – you have to shave your head!

4. GOOD OLD FASHIONED EGG AND SPOON RACE

Simply race with an egg on a spoon and suggest a donation of £1 to take part! Winner gets a prize!

5. SPRING/EASTER CAKE SALE 

Invite friends/family/colleagues to make Easter cakes and biscuits (hot-cross buns, simnel cake, chick-shaped biscuits, carrot cake…) and sell them off for a suggested donation. For added fun turn it into a Bake Off and give a prize to the best sweet treat! 

6. EASTER EGG HUNT

Organise an Easter egg hunt at home/in your garden/around your office and suggest a donation of £1 to take part!

7. ‘SPRING CLEAN’ RAFFLE 

Ask friends/family/colleagues to donate items for your ‘Spring clean’ raffle. Sell raffle tickets on a designated day for a suggested donation of £1 a strip (the raffle draw has to happen on the same day you sell the tickets) – then draw the raffle and winners take away a donated prize!

8. EASTER EGG SHY

The Easter version of a coconut shy. Just replace the normal coconuts with painted polystyrene or papier-mâché eggs and suggest a £1 donation to take part! Knock an egg off to win a prize!

9. EASTER BUNNY HOP RACE

A fun bunny hop race where everyone wears a pair of rabbits ears! Suggest a £1 donation to take part and winner gets a prize!
