Fundraising Ideas

You may already know the type of fundraising event you would like to host for Barnardos but if you need some help, here are some fun ideas for in-person and virtual fundraisers to inspire you and get you started.

Bake Sale or Bake Off – always a winner at work, home or in your local club.

Run a raffle – this can be done virtually or in-person. Approach local businesses for support in donating prizes and ask friends, colleagues, community and family to buy tickets.

Get active – organise a sponsored walk, run, cycle, skipathon or Boot Camp in your area.

Quiz, Race, Bingo or Comedy Night – another fun virtual or in-person event. Host a raffle too and boost your fundraising.

Take on a personal challenge – this could be a marathon or an endurance challenge. You’ll find lots to choose from here

Car Boot Sale – clear out those garage/shed/attic corners and sell off those items you no longer need.

Coffee Morning – whether in person or virtually, this is a great way to get to know your neighbours or catch up with friends and family.

Sports Tournament – get your local sports club involved and hold a golf, tennis, Gaelic, hurling or soccer tournament.

Or you can get creative and come up with your own idea. Get in touch with Jo Garry at [email protected] to see how we can help.
