Tips on how to fundraise

Drum up some extra support by adding some fundraising games and activities to your Eve 4 Eve – we’ve put together a list of things you can do below:

Hold a Raffle or Lucky Dip

Here at Eve we think this is one of the greatest ways you can encourage that extra bit of sponsorship! Use the authenticity in your pack when contacting local companies for prizes, for example you might contact your local spa for a voucher or your local supermarket for a hamper.

You can also approach companies to get prizes for other games or activities. Just remember to include your contact details with the letter so companies can respond to you directly.

Christmas Carol Pictionary

Guests can get involved by donating £1 or £2. Split everyone into teams. Individuals then pick a song from the hat and have to draw this out to their team within an allocated amount of time – but remember no words! Their team then has to guess the song and the team with the most points wins a prize.

Festive Charades

Don’t fancy Pictionary? Then how about Charades? Similar to Pictionary, guests can get involved by donating £1 or £2. They then split into teams.Individuals then pick a card at random and have to act out whatever it is to their team etc., this could be Building a Snowman or Christmas Carolling for example – but remember no speaking. Their team then has to guess what they are doing within an allotted time and the team with the most points wins a prize.

Stocking Guessing Game

Put together a stocking with different items all wrapped up and encourage guests to donate 50p or £1 to get involved. Pass the stocking round so everyone can feel what is inside. Give everyone a note card so that they can write down what their guesses are. The person who guesses the most correct answers wins the stocking.

Heads or Tails

Ask everyone to donate £1 or £2 to get involved. Get everyone to stand up and ask them to choose whether they think the coin will be heads or tails. Those who think heads will put both hands on their heads and those who think tails will put both hands on their bottoms.

Toss the coin and call out the result, those on the winning side stay standing, and the others must sit down and are eliminated. This is continued until you have one person standing. Don’t forget to award the winner a prize.

Knicker Designing

Guests can donate £1 or £2 to decorate a plan pair of knickers, they can add sequins, dye or lace to it. Or why not try and draw out a simple anatomical gynae diagram and see who gets the closest? The winning design wins a prize!

Guess how many Sweets are in the Jar

Fill up a jar full of sweets and ask guests to donate 50p or £1 to guess how many are in the jar. All they would need to do is write down their name and their estimate and then the person closest wins the jar of sweets!

Pin the Ovaries on the Reproductive System

To take part ask guests to donate £2 to see if they can pin the ovaries on the reproductive system. To get started, blindfold the participant and spin them round 3 times – then watch and see how close (or far) they get! The closest person would then win a prize.
