We welcome any fundraising ideas and are very happy to support them through our social media channels. Perhaps you could do something fun with your colleagues to raise money. How about:

  • a Pub Quiz – get into teams, charge a fee to take part and nominate your most exhuberant colleague as quiz master!
  • a swear jar– and make sure people put in a pound every time they use a naughty word.
  • running a sweepstake– whether it's for the Six Nations or the Apprentice, assign everyone a team or participant, charge to play and split the pot between the winner and Marie Curie
  • karaoke night or an open-mic night
  • an office sports day– channel peoples' competitive spirit and organise chair races and 10m tea runs
  • a dress-down day
  • signing up for a challenge as a team – you could do a local run, swim or cycle
  • nominating Tiyeni as your Charity of the Year.

If you're a bit sporty not try:

  • a dodge ball tournament – have a little prize-giving ceremony at the end with awards for most creative dodger and good sporting attitude!
  • a sponsored silence – a classic, but always a challenge
  • a treasure hunt – theme it according to the season
  • a rounders tournament
  • a super hero day – dress up as your favourite superhero – don’t forget, not all heroes wear capes... Marie Curie was a hero in the world of Science
  • a car boot sale – this is a good opportunity to have a bit of a clear out too.

Have fun while you raise money. Why not try:

  • pamper party – crack open the fizz, face masks and nail polish collection and get the girls over for a feel-good time in support of Marie Curie - mwah!
  • a cocktail evening – take a trip to the obscure spirit aisle and try those exciting flavours (and moves with the cocktail shaker) which you've always wanted to master!
  • an abseil or skydive – if you're scared of heights, this is sure to impress your friends into making a generous donation
  • Come Dine With Me – bring out the competitive spirit and try something new in the kitchen
  • a head shave – a bold, brave and bonding way to raise vital funds
  • a knit and natter day (or night!)
  • doing good deeds for donations – always entertaining to see what people come up with...
  • organising a concert – rope in family and friends with musical abilities and charge for entry.
