Don’t feel restrained by the classic charity fundraisers, step out of your comfort zone or use an unusual hobby to fundraise. See below for a few examples of some unique and succesful fundraising ideas.
Last year, Dundee Ice Arena hosted their 1st fun filled 12 hour “Curlathon” to raise funds for Bliss The event was organised by Scott Colston whose son Sam was born premature due to his wife Gillian developing HELLP Syndrome during pregnancy.
The event involved a “12 hour” team who played six 2 hour curling games back to back against 6 different local teams from 10am to 10pm. The ice was donated by Dundee Ice Arena and players donated their Ice Fees to Bliss. Friends, family and colleagues of the players were also invited to make donations. On the day, there was a raffle and a bake sale. Signed Scotland Curling tops were also auctioned. (Photo credit - Evening telegraph)
The Cheltenham Twins Group chose Bliss to benefit from their charity ‘toddle waddle’ and picnic. Despite the wet weather there was a great turn out with the little ones walking, toddling, being pushed in pushchairs and scooting to raise money for Bliss.
Puddle Ducks Sutton Coldfield, who provide baby, toddler and children’s swimming lessons, spent a week holding pyjama parties where the swimmers and parents wore their pyjamas in the pool. Donations to Bliss were made via an online giving page and money collected during lessons. This event tied into their programme of teaching lifesaving skills and promoting water safety, as well as being a great way to raise money.
An event held by the Birmingham University Yoga Society that combined their yoga session with UV lights and glow sticks. A fantastic turn out with all participants making a donation to the charity chosen.
