Ok, as part of the sixth form president team, we need to keep coming up with fresh new, exciting fundraising ideas , anyone got any?

Or If they're just things your sixth form does for fun or activities you have going on all year round, I'd love to know as we're running out of idea's fast! :eek:

Well, we were trying to raise money for our yearbook, and we did an ipod nano raffle and in a School of around 1000 people, we raised £700 in profit, that was selling £1 for a ticket and £3 for 5...

Something to consider?

My experience is the annual charity week. Every year, year 12 plan a whole week of events in the school within about a month and on average usually raise £10,000!

I'm on the commitee this year and we're just finishing all the events now. Here is a list of what we did/organised:

*A year 7,8 and 9 disco in the school hall, which rasied nearly £800.
*A non-uniform day where people pay £1 to come in non-uniform (£1 x 1500 students = £1500! :eek:
*A variety show of dancing, singing, ect (like Bitain's got talent but with school students) and charge people to watch. It was on two nights and raised £1500.
*Bake sales.
*Raffles.
*Auctions.
*Teacher sumo wrestling (hilarious to watch), raises lots of money.
*selling bits and bobs on stalls.
*A fashion show.
*car washing.
*bucket collections.
*House party (like Noel Edmonds lol) on a lunchtime.
*hire a party boy =P
*hire a sixth-former.
*bag-packing (can get a lot of money).

...it goes on and on. exhausting but worth it, I think we'll get to £10,000-£12,000 from it, for the Josie Grove Lueikeimia (spelt wrong, o well ) Trust.
But the events are quite fun to organise.

Hope that helped, if you want any tips or advice just ask me.
For example, we bought glow sticks at Poundland (30 for a pound) which worked out at about 3p, then sold them for 50p, which made profit as they all sold out (150-200 of them )

Hope your fundraising goes well whatever you decide to do

Although its not very exciting, our Student Union do cake sales for our 6th Form every friday morning and usually make about £50-£80 profit in 3 hours.

We also go to every single parents evening and sell raffle tickets with a cheap prize like £20 WHSmith Vouchers (they dont care what they win they just want to support us).
We make about £160 on that per evening.

I'm not sure... It's the enterprise team sorting it out.. I think they're buying them off the internet. *shrugs* lol

We managed to get a sumo wrestling arena for the teachers to ultimately battle it out, it worked a charm. While that was going on lunchtime, we sold sweets by the shed full. Seriously, buy a massive tub of sweets from Makro, (5kg tub for £15) then put about 3 or 4 sweets in a bag and sell them for 20p! We made quite alot by doing this, by the end of the week we had made £700 on sweets alone.

Good stuff. :rolleyes:

Just bag packed in Tesco today and we each got the equivalent of £13 an hour, for 5 hours. We're also doing a teacher car wash where we re washing teachers cars in our free periods in one day

Dear Sir/ Madame



I would like to introduce you to our company JimmyJoe’s and the opportunity we can offer your school or society to hold a hassle free fundraising event with an environmentally friendly purpose! We work as a clothing-recycling operator where our aim is to reduce the current statistic of the amount of reusable clothing ending up in landfill by extending the product lifecycle of the items through reuse and recycling. In order for your school to benefit from our service we offer a one-stop shop fundraising event opportunity.

Your school or society will need to do little more than distribute a collection bag to your members. It really is simple, firstly book an event, receive your event promotional pack and clothing sacks and we will collect at a convenient time for you. With an instant payment based on the number of kilo’s you collect. This can add to funds for a project of your choice and can happen as regularly as you would like to partake.

JimmyJoe’s will provide your school with an introductory letter to parents explaining the clothing collection event, therefore reducing the need for any administration on the behalf of the school. You will also be provided with stickers and certificates, which could create a fun or competitive edge between year groups or tutor groups highlighting their success on being eco friendly recyclers!

On a pre arranged event collection day a Jimmy Joes representative will call at your school or society and weigh the total weight of the clothing collected. The schools will then be presented with an instant payment to represent the success of the collection. You can relax in confidence that the event is promoting an eco friendly sustainability initiative that can create a valuable opportunity for the school.

We would relish the opportunity to communicate further with yourselves and we very much hope we can create a fundraising event together soon.
Thank you very much for your time and interest.



The Jimmy Joes Team
