Fabulous Fundraising ideas

Choose one idea, or do them all. Do it all on one day, or stretch it across a whole week, it’s entirely up to you.


Dress to impress

Pick a theme and showcase your best fancy-dress at work. Ask everyone to pay to enter, and even source prizes for the best dressed. Or, keep it simple by collecting donations for a classic dress-down day or wearing your best red outfits.

Best bake ever

Throughout the week of Red Nose Day, host bake sale breaks to bring everyone together for a lovely bit of tea and cake. Ask everyone to donate what they can to join in the fun. Or why not challenge employees to make their best bakes ever and host an organisation-wide baking competition.

Take a break

Donate to have an extra hour in bed, or leave an hour early, all in aid of having the best Red Nose Day ever.

Team Challenge

Push your team to the limit. Get sponsored to take on a epic team challenge – think anything from a 24- hour disco-a-thon relay to collectively running or cycling the distance from Lands End to John O’Groats.

Nominate the boss

Have some fun by challenging the boss to a forfeit or dare, like dying their hair red, making everyone’s tea, or coming to work dressed as a flamingo. Everyone donates to vote, and whatever raises the most, the boss must do.

Play our super sweepstake

Which dance move will Ellie Taylor bust out for Red Nose Day? Register to get the Red Nose Day sweepstake poster and ask colleagues to pay to guess.

Best meeting ever

Give your weekly team catch up or lunch hour the Red Nose Day treatment. Ask everyone to wear as much red as possible, invite a special guest, add food, games and entertainment tothe agenda, and see what happens! Everyone donates to take part, whether they are athome or in the office.

Get quizzical

Host the best quiz ever with a little help from the nation’s favourite quizmaster Jay Flynn MBE. Register to get Jay’s exclusive Red Nose Day quiz.

Do your own thing
