Five SPOTacular fundraising ideas for your staffroom

Whether you’re getting the whole school involved or simply raising money with fellow teachers, your support makes a huge difference right across the UK.

1. Bear Pong

Bear Pong is what fundraising is all about – silly fun to raising life-changing funds. The aim of the game is simple: compete against your colleagues to be the best at bouncing ping pong balls so they land (and stay!) in cups at the far end of the table.

2. Wear something spotty

Whether it’s spotty hairbands, spotty nails, spotty socks or spotty Pudsey ears, ask staff to come in on Friday 18th November simply wearing something spotty. Find dress up ideas, rosettes, certificates and more right here.

3. Jellybean jar

It couldn’t be simpler. Grab a jar, fill it to the brim with treats of your choice, take donations for guesses on how many there are and the winner takes the sweets!

4. Auction of promises

Come up with a list of promises, such as cleaning someone else’s desk, giving up your parking space to a colleague, covering a class, and let colleagues bid donations to win!

5. Baby photos

Dig out your old baby photos and ask for donations to guess who’s who. Whichever teacher guesses the most right gets a prize!
