Bike Free Fundraising Ideas

We  value your help but we know that coming up with an idea isn’t easy and with busy lives it’s hard to find the time. Read some of our favourite fundraising ideas for a bit of inspiration for fun and not-too-tricky ideas anybody can try.

Karaoke party

Use your singalong to raise money for your favourite cause. Have your karaoke party at your local pub and hire a proper machine, or keep it low key and host friends in your own home. There are lots of free karaoke apps and console games you could use to turn your TV into a karaoke screen. Make sure you have some good speakers and disco lights. If you really want to get into character ask your guests to dress up as their musical heroes!

Bake off

Cakes sales are always popular, after all, who doesn’t like a victoria sponge? And a bake off adds a bit more fun to the traditional bake sale. Hold yours at your office at lunchtime. Ask entrants to concoct their finest confections and find some ‘judges’ and award prizes e.g. tastiest cake, most beautiful cake and best cupcakes. Guests pay a few pounds to come to the bake off where they get to taste and vote for their favourites. You can also sell off the creations afterwards.

Quiz night 

Yours could be at the office, at home, at a village hall or an evening with friends at your local pub. Charge £5 or £10 per team to enter. Personalise it with bike themed questions, a guess-the-baby-photo round or a special theme to fit your crowd’s interests.

Get sponsored 

You can be sponsored to do almost anything. How about trying to keep absolutely silent or only speaking a different language for one day. Grow or shave your beard, dress like a celebrity at work, enter a running or swimming challenge or walk up a mountain. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
