Some ideas perfect for families
Below are just a few ideas that are perfect for families. Some more practical than others depending on your family circumstances and preferences. But with a little creativity you can come up with some amazing activities
A House Party
You can throw a house get together for close friends and family and ask everyone to make a contribution. You can use the occasion to talk about why you are choosing to serve Saint Lucia.
A Bike Ride
Are you a riding family and often do long rides? Why not use one or two of these rides as a fundraiser?
This one is one of my favourite. We love BBQ's. This activity would almost be a hit! Once you've done yours encourage others to do the same. So you take turns!
Host a Roast
If you are in the UK, you can throw a great British tradition of Sunday lunch while raising money. Instead of going to a restaurant for a family meal, cook a roast at home and get everyone to donate the cost of their meal to Friends of Saint Lucia.
Run for the Family
If you are a running family, you can team up and join a local Run event near you. There are many well-known runs around.
Care for a cupcake
Are you a baking family? Why not hold a Care for a Cupcake fundraiser! Stock up on some yummy treats, invite your friends over, and they can buy a cupcake while sharing a tea or coffee with you. .
Celebrate and Give
When celebrating an occasion such as an anniversary or birthday, we’ve found that many people have used it as an opportunity to ask for donation in lieu (or as well as!) a present. It’s a simple and personal way to celebrate a special day.
Hold an auction
Contact local shops and businesses and ask them to donate some items for a charity auction. Invite work colleagues, family and friends so they can bid to their heart’s content.
A family picnic
This can be a really super fun activities especially if you have a large family and group of friends. Invite them to bring items and ask each to make a contribution.
