An oldie but a goodie. Why not try to get the whole team involved too – or maybe even your boss.
Hold a dress down day
Ask your colleagues for a donation to take part. Why not take it a bit further and get everyone to dress in red?
If you can’t bring yourselves to cut out the cake, charge people to eat it instead! Organise a few colleagues to bake their best showstoppers. Another easy way to bring in the dough.
Stick a large piece of card up on the wall and ask all your colleagues to put on some red lippy, pucker up and plant the biggest, boldest kiss they can (on the wall, not each other). Hold a ‘Guess the lips’ competition, where people make a donation and put names to the kisses, with the highest number of correct guesses winning a prize. You can get them to vote on the best smacker too, with a ‘Perfect Pout’ award.
Skip the snacks
Are you a sweet-toothed bunch? Why not ditch the doughnuts for the day? Donate what you would have spent to the BHF.
Sell a service or skills
The chances are you work with a talented bunch of people. Convince them to give up a bit of time for free. From guitar lessons to handmade knits, from fancy food to make up tips. Auction everything off. You’ll be saving lives in no time.
Get an exercise bike in the office
Hold a cycling or rowing relay – how quickly can you and your colleagues cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats? How fast can you row the Thames? Get your colleagues who don’t want to get sweaty to sponsor you. Or draw lots, getting people to guess how long it will take.
