Fundraising Ideas for Individuals, Groups & the Workplace

Whether it's running a marathon, holding a bake sale, or taking part in a sponsored challenge, there are plenty of ways to fundraise for FareShare Midlands - either on your own, in a group with friends, or with colleagues at work! Here are some activities and challenges you can do to have fun while raising vital funds to help FareShare Midlands fight hunger and food waste:

Take on a challenge event

Do you enjoy running, swimming or cycling? Taking on a challenge can boost your fitness, improve mental health and give you a goal to work towards. If you have secured a place in a challenge event, we can share our top tips to maximise your fundraising. If you'd like to join a FareShare organised challenge, then read about our annual  'Miles for Meals' event here.

Organise your own event

Throw a bash to raise some cash - why not get some friends together and raise money at the same time? You could hold a quiz or sports tournament for those with a competitive streak! Be creative – host a ‘food waste’ themed dinner party, a green cocktail evening, or an eco-friendly summer picnic.

Give it up!

Want to cut back on alcohol, chocolate, coffee or crisps? The savings you make on giving up your ‘treats’ for a month or two can really add up. The price of a medium latte can provide up to 10 meals for vulnerable and hungry people in the UK. 

Fundraising Ideas for Schools

If you are a school teacher, learning support assistant, parent or pupil, there are many ways for you to mobilise the school population, have some fun – and raise some cash for FareShare Midlands. 

Non-uniform day

Tried, tested and loved by pupils everywhere – try a non-uniform day with pupils paying £1 for the privilege of wearing their own togs for the day. Why not make teachers dress in uniform to really switch things around!

Harvest festival

Instead of collecting tins, hold an assembly about how much good food from every harvest goes to waste, while millions of people in the UK go hungry. If every child brings £1 to donate to FareShare, they can each provide 4 meals for people in need.

School disco

D-I-S-C-O! Choose a theme, round up some volunteers and sell tickets to an all-years school disco. Sell refreshments to boost the fundraising effort.
