Fundraising ideas for outdoor and group activities

cinema ticketsHave a go at running your own cinema! Join the outdoor cinema craze with your very own charity popup cinema. Once you’ve found a suitable space and decided on an entry price, you’ll need to choose a film people will love.

To get people excited and involved, start a poll to see what film they’d love to watch, with the favourite being screened on the day.

walking bootsThere’s endless fun to be had with a treasure hunt. Give it at theme. Create your own maps. Pick your choice of “treasure”! It’s a great chance to get creative and do something all the family can enjoy.

Charge an entry fee and have refreshments ready to sell when the hunt’s over.

The secret to a great festival isn’t rocket science, so why not host your own? Music, food and great company are all you need! Find a suitable space for your festival and charge an entry fee.

Give your miniature stars a stage of their very own! Singing, dancing, acting – give the kids a space to do whatever they enjoy most.

Checking your activity is safe and legal

  • plasterYou must comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and all other relevant subordinate legislation.
  • If you are going to be carrying money around take care with personal security. Always use a safe route and always be accompanied and/or carry a personal alarm.
  • The NSPCC does not encourage particularly hazardous activities including abseiling, assault courses or bungee jumping - if you are unsure please contact us.
  • If contractors, sub-contractors or external facilities are used, make sure they have the relevant experience and can demonstrate compliance with insurance and health and safety standards.

moneyNever send cash in the post. If you haven't set up an online fundraising page, the safest way is to send in money from your fundraising is by cheque.

Post your cheque(s) to your local fundraising office, making them payable to 'NSPCC registered charity'. Remember to enclose your name and address so we can thank you for your hard work!
