On the 13th March, people all across the UK will be joining forces to raise money in support of Sport Relief which helps to fight child poverty, homelessness and mental health across the world.
Since 2018, Sport Relief has raised enough money to support 13 million people across the United Kingdom and around the world!
We’ve pulled together some top family-friendly fundraising tips for a truly worthwhile cause.
Don’t forget to order your fundraising pack here and for schools and nurseries here, to get your fundraising off to a flying start, whether that be at work, school, nursery or you are doing your own thing! The pack contains hints, tips and great materials.
GET YOUR KIT ON
The challenge is simple. Get Friday 13th March in the diary and ask your work mates to donate £2 each to wear something sporty on the day. Sport your finest kit, whether that’s a simple pair of footy socks or full ski gear. The only rule is that everyone donates to take part. Schools, nursies and clubs can also get involved.
Put your obstacle course skills to the test and raise money at your children’s school, with a group of friends, at work, you name it! Just set up your course and skip, jump and hop into a special Sport Relief obstacle course.
It’s an excellent way to raise money, have fun and bring everyone’s athletic skills together.
DO AN ANYTHING-ATHON
Dance, hop, skip, swim or hula, just keep going for as long as possible. Just make sure you sign up sponsors or sell tickets to join in the fun.
A classic fundraising initiative. Whether it be taking part in a bake sale at your children’s school or at your work, find the star bakers amongst your friends and colleagues. Ask them to put sweet and savoury treats on top of the table and your fundraising will be a winner.
Mix up an old favourite with themed bakes or competitions amongst your friends and family.
