Trick or Donation?

The clocks have gone back, Winter is here, that can only mean one thing…it’s Halloween soon! What a great excuse to give your fundraising a bit of a boost. No tricks just fundraising tips just for you:

  1. Hold a gruesome cake sale – as Halloween falls on a Friday everyone in the office will love a cake to celebrate the last day of the week.  Why not make some simple cupcakes and decorate them to look like pumpkins or spider webs?
  2. Dress up in your spooky gear at work and see if your office will agree to take part in a freakish Friday dress-down, or maybe fancy dress. Charge everyone a small donation for taking part, and a bigger donation ‘fine’ for just wearing their usual work gear.
  3. Run in costume if  you reach a level of donations. Agree to tackle an event like Parkrun dressed in your Halloween fancy dress.
  4. Trick or donation why not spread the word on Social Media on the day of Halloween to your friends and family, it’s Friday, Halloween and payday all rolled into one!
  5. Hold a Halloween film night with a selection of ‘scary movies’ and spooky film snacks (we’re thinking green popcorn, Halloween cup cakes and trick or treat sweets). Ask for a donation to your page from your guests and then hide behind a cushion with the lights out when the film starts.
