We can all struggle from time to time to think of an idea for our next fundraising attempt! But not anymore, as the brains at CCHF have put together an all expansive list of ideas and events which could be used to raise money for whichever great cause you are backing.
To top it off, its even been put into a lovely, all inclusive, alphabetic list for your connivence: aren’t we great! Lets kick things off with A through to H…
These can be great ways to get rid of some old stuff and raise some money for charity too. Organise your own fundraising auction and sell talents as well as goods!

Who doesn’t love cakes, baking and – frankly – food! Getting friends and family together to bake can be an brilliantly tasty way to raise money.
