Fundraising Ideas

Big Yellow Friday is an exciting opportunity to help raise money for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation. Wearing yellow or holding a yellow themed bake sale is the easiest way to take part in Big Yellow Friday. But if you would like to ramp it up and raise more money for CLDF, we have plenty of top tips and ideas to make your event a huge success. Fundraising couldn’t be easier – if its fun and you can throw in a splash of yellow, go for it!

 

Here are some simple and fun fundraising ideas to get you inspired…

 

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!

Big yellow ball

Why not go all out by holding a ‘Big Yellow Ball’ at a local hall or event space and inviting all your friends and family. You could have entertainment, hold a best dressed competition and organise a raffle or auction.

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.

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?

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.

Teachers vs students

Hold a teachers vs students sports day or talent contest!

Big yellow walk

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