Primary school fundraising ideas
Whether you’re planning to go all out and make a day of it, or just squeeze in something quick and easy, we’ve ideas of every shape, size and silliness.
Fun, free and full of ideas
Stuffed with ideas, tips, teaching resources, balloons and stickers, our primary school packs make planning for the big day a doddle.
Dance the donations in
Dust off the glitter ball and prepare to dance the night away at a school disco or danceathon. Sell tickets or get sponsored and set up a snack stall on the side to keep everyone going (and the money rolling in).
Dress up (or down)
Join schools across the UK on Friday 15 March and ask everyone to pay a small fee to go non-uniform for the day. To really get in the Red Nose Day spirit, dig out your reddest t-shirt, hat or silly wig and accessorise with deeley boppers.
Bake a difference
Bake, buy or just pay to eat lots of home-made treats. To help get you started, we’ve put together a few easy recipes to make at home or school. You can also print cake labels and bunting to decorate your stall.
Splat the teacher
Water, sponges, some medieval stocks… I think you can see where this is going. Name your price and prepare to get wet, wet, wet. Bring in the big names to really up the ante – we’d definitely pay extra to splat the headteacher.
Put on a show
Ask teachers to channel their inner diva, dancer or comedy genius, then sell tickets and fill the hall for a rip-roaring Red Nose Day show. Let pupils pay to pick a winner or recruit them too for a whole-school extravaganza.
