Hi, Tori here.
With summer just around the corner it’s the perfect time to start planning a fundraising activity to support Living Paintings. Here are a few of our ideas for fun ways to raise money:
Sizzling Summer BBQ:
Dust off your BBQ and your garden furniture and invite some friends around for an alfresco meal. Ask them for a small charity donation and have a great party! If you feel more active and want to recapture the thrill of school sports’ day, add some fun activities such as three-legged races, egg and spoon or even a sack race!
Offer a dog walking service:
Dog walking in good weather can be a lovely job and it helps to keep you fit. You can volunteer to walk friends’ and neighbours’ dogs for a small fee which you then donate to us.
Summer Fete/Fun Day:
If your local school, church or village hall are holding a summer fete, ask them if you can have a stall. You could sell cakes, old clothes and children’s toys. A lucky dip or tombola are easy to organise, really popular and raise masses of cash.
Dress down for the summer:
Introduce a summer “dress down” day at work or school. Wear Hawaiian shirts and summer hats and donate a couple of pounds to Living Paintings to leave your suits/school uniform at home.
For the more adventurous adult why not sign up to the Tough Mudder. It’s a 10-12 mile obstacle course designed to test all-around strength, stamina, teamwork, and mental grit. You will need a strong sense of camaraderie to make it through the Arctic Enema, Electroshock Therapy, Everest, Funky Monkey and Pyramid Scheme. Find out more and sign up on the Tough Mudder website.
