Can you cook, play an instrument, do magic tricks or speak another language? Why not hold a lesson for your friends and ask for donations in return?
Invite your friends round for coffee – and don’t forget the collection box! Give it a theme and hold an Ethiopian coffee ceremony!
Rustle up some ugali, fry some sukuma wiki or bake cassava chips. Download these recipes (PDF) or contact us for more ideas for your ‘mealie meal’.
Hold a welly ball, wear your wellies to work, hold a welly sports day or bake some bootiful biscuits. Whatever, help us stamp out poverty the welly way. Boots are great for collecting coins in - and you could link your fundraising with our Give Hunger the Boot appeal.
Hold an evening of talk and debate about Africa or farming or any other subject of your choice. Charge for entry or ask for donations.
Bring a funny photo into work and hold a caption competition. Workmates pay to enter and the winner gets a framed copy of the photo and caption for their desk.
Hold a tournament and charge to enter a football, rugby, or rounders team. Follow it with a BBQ, tea or garden party for all the players, family and friends.
Hold an auction of promises, ask friends and colleagues to donate a promise - and let the bidding begin.
Ask everyone to bake and donate cakes, buns and biscuits and then sell them – it’s amazing how much flour power can raise.
Offer your gardening skills in return for Farm Africa donations. You could offer to weed your mum’s garden in return for a donation to Farm Africa, open your garden for a fee or sell your excess veg, plants, eggs or seeds at a village fete.
