More fundraising ideas

There are lots of fantastic fundraising ideas your school can use all year round to support Unicef:

  • Unicef-themed ’Mufti’ day – pupils and staff pay a pound and come to school in head to toe blue!
  • Cake sales – ask your top bakers to make their favourite sweet treat and hold a playground cake sale for pupils, staff, parents and the community.
  • School disco – sell tickets, put on their dancing shoes on, have fun and raise money for Unicef in the process!
  • Sports day – combine fundraising with your school’s existing sports day. Charge friends and family to watch and sell refreshments to boost your fundraising total.
  • Talent show – dance, sing and show your talents for Unicef. £5 per entry and sell tickets for the show to loved ones.
  • Quiz fundraiser – get your thinking caps on and organise a quiz. Collect an entry fee from every player and see which team will be victorious!
