Fundraising ideas


"The charity fund raising night that I arranged was spectacular and the prizes donated by friends and local business played a huge part in its success. I would gladly promote its benefits to future braintrusters" 


-Matthew Lee, organiser of a Charity Fundraising Ball 



Fun fundraising with food & drink!

Love food? Love drink? Why not use raising money for brainstrust as an excuse for a party! Below are some ideas to get you on your way. 

Pub quiz             

An easy formula – pubs are often only too keen to help, particularly if you want to hold the quiz on a quiet night. Many will run the quiz on your behalf, but if all else fails, there's a great guide to getting a pub quiz up and running here.

cake 2Tea parties
How we love tea and cake. National Tea Party Week is usually in March. Get friends baking cakes, you provide the tea and invite your friends and colleagues along to buy tea and cake – hey presto, a good time for all!

Buffet supper
Everyone cooks a course (keeps it nice and easy!), but you can charge for tickets and donate the proceeds to brainstrust.

A night in
Instead of going out for the evening, why not stay in – invite some friends round, cook a meal, watch a great film and donate some of what you all saved to brainstrust

Vanishing lunches and coffee
Right, bear with us here! First, invite six people to lunch or coffee. Ask them to donate a minimum sum to cover the costs. Then they must each invite five people to a lunch they organise – again for a minimum donation. Then the five invite four, the four invite three and so on. If the chain is completed at £3 per head, then it will raise a massive £5,868; at £1 for coffee - £1, 956! You get to eat TONS of food and raise money for brainstrust. Thanks to brain tumour UK for this idea.

Garden open days
Either show off your garden or persuade a local house to open its garden. Add a tea party – and donate proceeds to brainstrust.
