Would you like to hold an event to help Blood Pressure UK raise fund, but have run out of inspiration? Perhaps our A-Z of ideas will help to spark your imagination.


A

Aerobics:

If you enjoy keeping fit - or want to start - why not get people to sponsor you or pay to join in


B

Book Sale:

Dig out all those old books and have a book sale at home or at work.


C

Chocs Away:

Get sponsored to give up chocolate for a month (or longer!).


D

Darts Match:

Charge an entry fee, have a raffle and refreshments. Make it fun - ladies versus, left handed throws only etc.


E

E-Bay

Have a rummage in the cellar, loft and garage. During your clear out, why not put your items on e-bay and you can give the proceeds to support the vital work of the Blood Pressure Association


F

Fashion Show:

Arrange a fashion show and charge for entries, or have a dress up day at work - compare haute couture around the photocopier!

Get your club to support us for their charity golf day.

How Many…..?:

Sweets in a jar, for example. Sell tickets for people to guess

International Dinner Party:

Prepare dishes from around the world and charge people to enjoy them

Jumble Sale:

People love a good rummage and it's always a good fundraiser
