Fundraising with an Olympic twist

olympics for blog

Sadly, the Olympics have come to a close and so have the endless hours, lying on the sofa, watching feats of incredible sporting prowess.

Why not put your Olympic hangover to good use, get your friends and family or place of work involved and do some athletics inspired fundraising?

The ‘in front of the TV’ fundraising tournament

We all know someone who has a Nintendo Wii which could very well be sitting in a drawer gathering dust. Most importantly, it’s likely that it came with a copy of Wii Sports which could assist you in your very own office Olympics!

It could be as simple as creating a Virgin Money Giving page, picking your events, asking people to make a donation in order to enter and then picking up some prizes for the tournament winners.

The ‘back to the old school’ option

If the sun is shining, you could even get your PE kit on, take your friends and family or invite your office outside for a game of rounders or cricket. They might not currently be Olympic sports but we all know they should be.

Participants make a donation to a Virgin Money Giving page in order to take part and organise a small prize for the winner – or it could even just be pride and bragging rights!

There are all sorts of ways you can raise money for your chosen charity with a sporting angle – why not share yours below?
