This month is all about the Superbowl for sports fans. So to celebrate, we’ve come up with some sporty fundraising ideas that can help you keep that sporty spirit flowing!
- Hold a charity football match
If you’re involved in a local club already, you could hold a fun charity football match with the local U12 team vs. their parents. Or play a fancy-dress friendly hockey match against another local team. Or, if you’re in your local netball team, you could challenge your local football team to a game of basketball. Charge a match fee for your charity sports event, ask a donation from spectators and you could even put on a buffet at the local pub for afterwards!
- Have a PE Kit Day to support your local breast cancer charity
If holding a charity football match isn’t your thing, why not persuade your boss to let you have a PE kit day at work? Swap your suit or smart-casual for some 70s football shorts and a couple of outrageous florescent sweatbands…or something a little more low-key if that’s not your thing. Ask everyone who dresses up (down?) to donate a couple of quid to help the Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer charity.
- Charity sports event night in
If there’s a big game coming up in your chosen sport that’s showing on TV, why not make a night of it? You could rent a space and borrow a projector or persuade someone with a big living room to let you use it. Get in some snacks and drinks and ask for a donation to cover food and drink and a little extra to donate to your favourite local breast cancer charity, LFBC!
- Compete in a charity sports event like a fun run
Find a local race or fun run and either go it alone or get a group of friends together to join in with you! You could take your charity sports event super seriously and aim for the Birmingham 10k or Half Marathon or do something a little sillier like a Tough Mudder or a Superhero Run. Ask for sponsorship from friends and family to raise money for people suffering from breast cancer in the West Midlands.
If there’s a big sporting event coming up (a football final or The Grand National maybe?), try doing a sweepstakes with your friends, team mates or colleague. Instead of the winner taking it all, why not split the winnings 50/50 between the winner and a Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer charity fundraising pot? Win win!
