Local fundraising ideas

We're gathering together ideas from our districts about how to raise funds to support your activities. You will find these in the resources tagged by 'local fundraising', or you can click the links below to go straight to a specific activity.

Please submit your ideas at

Venturer Auction

Venturer Auction (from Highgate & Holloway district)

Each year, at a time when we have lots of adults around (usually the quiz),we hold a Venturer auction at some point in the night.

Pea Fair

Pea Fair (from Highgate & Holloway district)

At the end of each term we hold a district event. In the summer it’s in a park and we invite parents and run games etc. At the end of the term before Christmas we hold a pea fair for the whole district including parents.

The week before the last session we get the young people to come up with ideas for stalls they could run at the pea fair.

These are not limited to

Tuesday, 20 October 2015

Huge thanks to all our Give as you Live supporters, particularly our 'Top Ten'  - Bernadette Russell, Andy Marshall, Bryony Walsh, Jon Nott, Owen Sedgwick-Jell, Jane Astill, Nadine Spencer, Sandra Smith, Emily Crane and Carly Walker-Dawson who between them have raised over £300 for Woodcraft funds.

How did they do this? Just by using Give as you Live for online purchases. All they had to do was install the Give as You Live extension to their web browser.
