Ideas For You

Movie Night

Get your friends round for a yellow-themed movie night! Have some yellow snacks and your best pyjamas at the ready, then watch some yellow-themed films like Minions or The Wizard of Oz!

Hold Your Own

Bake sale, curry night, car wash or pamper evening. Download our BYF Quiz pack to run a quiz night

Big Yellow Ball

A ball is a wonderful excuse to get dressed up, invite friends and family and have a great time. Throw in a raffle or auction and you have a night to remember as well as a fantastic fundraiser.

Big Yellow Bikeathon

Organise a Big Yellow bikeathon (from the comfort of your own home or gym!) – challenge yourself to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats, or get friends and family involved and take turns to cover the distance.

Ideas For Work

Big yellow lunch

Ask your colleagues to join in with a Big Yellow lunch; all wear yellow and bring some yellow goodies to eat. You could even offer a prize to the most creative outfit or food creation.

Big yellow bake off

Hold a bake sale and a competition for the tastiest treat. Everyone’s a winner with a table full of yellow cakes!

Yellow fancy dress

Staff can get sponsored to wear fancy dress! How about wearing a banana costume on the train to work or a yellow fairy outfit to an important meeting?

Big yellow sweepstake

Get your colleagues guessing by downloading a Big Yellow sweepstake – an easy way to get involved!

Ideas For School

Big yellow day

Organise a Big Yellow Day (or week!) by wearing yellow, holding a yellow cake sale and arranging yellow themed activities. If you’re going for a full week, top it off by holding a Big Yellow party on Big Yellow Friday itself!

Teachers vs students

Hold a teachers vs students sports day or talent contest!

Get crafty

Decorate your own pot and plant some sunflowers in the build up to Big Yellow Friday. Organise a plant sale after school on the big day and invite parents and family.

Big yellow walk

Organise a Big Yellow sponsored walk around the school grounds, or a mini marathon or sponsored toddle.
