Bake. Invite friends to a mouth-watering bake sale or coffee morning.

C


Cycle. Fancy a cycle challenge? Sign up for a place at Ride London with other CAP supporters or take on your own challenge.

D


Dinner. How about hosting a dinner party where you tell a story of a CAP client’s journey out of debt? If you’re competitive, you could make it a Come Dine With Me style event, where people donate to take part.

Jumble sale. Embrace your inner minimalist and raise money by selling the stuff you want to declutter from your home anyway!

Knit. In exchange for donations to CAP, offer them their very own handmade hat or scarf!

Loose change. Have a jar to collect those copper coins in your purse or wallet, and they’ll soon add up.

Matched giving. Ask a local bank or business to match your fundraising and watch your total go up!

Non-uniform/dress down day. Ask people to donate £1 to come to work in casual clothes. Or go a step further and make it fancy dress!
