Get Involved: Organise an Event at Work

Fundraising at work is a great way of bringing colleagues together and having a bit of fun too. Get inspired by reading about how others have transformed children’s lives – and we’ve included some of our own favourite activities too!

Get inspired!

"We organised a virtual race to India. Colleagues competed against each other by running, walking or cycling; we then plotted everyone’s distances to see how far we got to India. When everyone was feeling disconnected it brought people together."

"For some reason our colleagues told us a sponsored silence would be a good way to fundraise. We pledged to stay silent for a day asking for sponsorship and we raised nearly £300!"
