The school summer fete might not be the freshest idea in your fundraising calendar but it stays in because, let’s face it, when done well they raise money.
To liven up the event this year have you thought about:
Panning for Gold – allowing children to sift through sand and water to find ‘golden nuggets’ – small stones sprayed gold, is a winner. The gold nuggets could be prize enough but if not ‘find three nuggets and win another prize’, could also work.
There is some investment required for this idea but it generates a lot of interest and money.
Human Fruit Machine – the human fruit machine is a simple idea which can be made as simple or as elaborate as you wish. You set up three boxes with lids, four or five different fruits in each box (each box must have the same fruits in). You can charge, say 50p a ‘pull’. The three helpers put their hands in and draw out a fruit, if they match you win, if not you lose. Remember to begin collecting prizes in good time for your event
