Dress up day

Everyone loves a non-uniform day. Crank it up a notch. BHF fundraisers are our heroes – why not get everyone to dress up as their favourite hero?

Bake sale

Sell cakes and fruit at break times and lunchtimes. Go the extra mile and give your goods a red theme.

Bring and Buy sale

Set up your own BHF shop for the day. Ask everyone to bring in their unwanted items and hold a sale. All the leftover items can go to your local BHF shop – double whammy!

Treasure Hunt

Make it as big or as small as you want – around your school, college or university. Make it fun and friendly so everyone can enjoy it. If you have enough people, why not make it a team challenge?

Joke time

Get all the pupils to bring in their favourite jokes and bring in a donation to tell them. Hold an assembly just for joke telling – put the fun into fundraising!
