More ideas

There are lots of ways that you can raise money for us. Whatever you do, please make sure you download our Gift Aid form so we can get the most out of the money you raise.

We’ve put together some ideas below. Please do email us to let us know what you’re up to, or if you have some fundraising ideas of your own. Download our sponsorship form for use with any sponsored event.

Home-made fairy cakesHold a cake sale at school or work: ask colleagues or friends to all bake a cake, then invite everyone to come and buy them during lunch and coffee breaks

Get sponsored to do something a bit different… If you don’t fancy the usual run or walk – do something else. How about a sponsored silence or read?

Fancy dressHold a fancy dress day or dress down day, and ask everyone who takes part to make a donation to the National Literacy Trust – we suggest £2 per person

Save all your coppers up in a jar and then donate the amount you save to the National Literacy Trust – it’s amazing how quickly they mount up!

Ensure your unwanted gifts go to someone who wants them and hold a raffle or tombola after Christmas, donating the proceeds to us

Wine glass and bottleOrganise a wine tasting among friends and ask for everyone to make a donation to the National Literacy Trust.

Have a swear box at home or in the office: every time someone swears they have to donate a set amount, £1 per swear word should be enough of a deterrent!
