Are you interested in raising money for Alder Hey Children’s Charity? Well, with Easter just around the corner, why not put the two together and think about some Easter-themed fundraising ideas? When it comes to Easter, most of us think about chocolate, eggs and chicks – so keep these things in mind when planning your Alder Hey fundraising event!
Easter egg hunt
Whether it’s at home with family and friends or at school, an Easter egg hunt is always a firm favourite, no matter what your age! Ask people to donate an “entry fee” of their choice (ie. don’t put a price on it – just ask people to give whatever they can), then hide Easter eggs around the house, garden or playground. Whoever finds the most eggs wins, and all the money can be donated to Alder Hey to help with children’s health research.
Egg and spoon race
Similar to the Easter egg hunt, but a bit more balance is required! Ask entrants to make a donation to take part – that’s the fundraising bit done. The race can either involve actual eggs on spoons (for the pros) or, if you fancy a tasty reward at the end, why not use chocolate eggs in your egg and spoon race to get into the Easter spirit?! Either way, make sure the winner gets a chocolatey prize!
Speaking of sweet treats - why not plan a bake sale for your Easter fundraiser? Whether it’s at school, work or within your local community, if everyone agrees to bring in some home-baked goods, they can be sold to raise money for Alder Hey. It might sound like you won’t make much money, but just think; if 20 people bring in 10 cupcakes each and these are each sold for 50p, that’s £100.00 raised!
Easter afternoon tea
Host an Easter-themed afternoon tea! Ask everyone who attends to bring a small donation as well as something to eat or drink, and collectively you can enjoy an Easter-themed afternoon tea whilst raising money. Make it Easter-themed by asking people to bring hot cross buns, Easter cupcakes, chocolate eggs and of course – tea, milk and sugar!
