Put the FUN in fundraising this Red Nose Day with our top tips to fundraising in primary schools. There are so many ways you can raise money for Comic Relief and have a laugh at the same time.
Along with your FREE school song and classroom activities which you can download here, host a whole variety of money-raising events using our ideas below as inspiration.
Everything is better with a bit of laughter. Why not try fundraising by setting up a face-painting stand for some fabulously funny faces? Or how about hosting a silly walk competition? You could even have a competition to discover who can write the best original joke. Charge a little for entries and make laughter count for so much more.
2. Have A Rap-Battle!
Rapping is its own unique form of poetry. Why not have students write their own raps about the importance of charity and host a rap battle in the classroom? You may find some hidden rappers in your school who would be perfect for performing the song’s rap in a whole-school assembly!
3. Have A Bake Off!
Here’s a super sweet way to fundraise. Host a bake sale in the school and see how much money you can raise for Red Nose Day whilst making hungry tummies happy. We hosted a bake sale at the Out of the Ark Music offices and just look at how happy it made us!
It’s always fun to play a game of football. It’s even more fun to have a chance to beat the teachers in a game of football! Have participants pay a small amount for the opportunity to play against your school staff members in an after-school football frenzy!
5. Have A Disco!
Celebrate a whole week of fundraising by hosting a school disco. Students can pay for tickets, and you could even host smaller fundraising activities throughout the dance! Who’s up for a round of limbo?
Don't forget to check out the Official Red Nose Day Schools' Song Music Video too! Be sure to learn the dance and get into the groove of fundraising today!
