Autumn, wood and colourful leaves

Make raising money for Walk the Walk fun by doing something you love!

Autumn is here and with it comes thoughts of colourful autumn leaves, Halloween, Guy Fawkes and cosy evenings keeping warm! Make the most of what the season has to offer and check out some of our favourite autumn fundraising ideas below!

National Curry Week
The nation's passion for curry is celebrated from the 13th-19th October... to mark the occasion put some spice in your life and invite your friends around for a tasty Indian meal and some warm hospitality! Either ask your guests for a donation towards your fundraising total or charge a set price per head. You could also offer a taxi service for afterwards so they can fully enjoy themselves!


Barn Dance
Invite your friends, supply refreshments, charge an entrance fee... you could even hold a raffle on the night to bump up those donations! Dancing is obligatory... so pull on your cowboy boots, grab your partner by the hand and get your 'Hoedown' on! 

Halloween Party
Get your friends and family together for a 'spooktacular' party... everybody loves to dress up for Halloween... so why not offer a prize for the most 'frightful' costume of the evening... or even get sponsored to make a friend jump!

Conker Tournament
Revisit your childhood by holding a conker tournament! Charge for entry and award a prize for the winner. For an added fundraising boost, hold a sweepstake to guess how long it takes the first conker to get destroyed... fundraise and enjoy some good old fashioned fun!


Scary Film Night!
Sit back on the sofa, put your feet up and turn your movie night into a fundraiser! A great laid back way to fundraise... simply supply the drinks and popcorn, rent or buy a suitably scary movie... and ask your friends for a minimum donation amount to come and watch your spooky screening!

Soup Lunch Fundraiser
Cook up a large batch of soup and take it in to work! Encourage those that normally pop out and buy lunch (and even those that don’t!) to save money and donate to a worthy cause - charge just £2 per bowl - it's a win, win!


Treasure Hunt
This one doesn’t just have to be for children- it’s a great one for kids of all ages! Simply create some clues and charge your friends/family to hunt the ‘treasure’ and let the fun unfold!

Leaf Clearing
Ask friends, family and neighbours if they need their gardens and pathways cleared of autumn leaves... in return for a donation to your fundraising of course!


Apple Bobbing
One for the child in everyone! Get a bucket and float some apples in it, and ask your friends for a donation to have a go! Mark one or more of the apples to qualify for a small prize... perhaps a toffee apple... candyfloss or a warming glass of spiced punch.

Pumpkin Carving Competition
Autumn is pumpkin season... so why not got creative and have a pumpkin carving contest? Help your fundraising budget by asking your local grocery store for pumpkin donations.


Trick or Treating
Instead of asking for sweets why not ask for donations instead? It's a perfect opportunity to explain face to face exactly why you’re fundraising!

Bonfire Night
Remember, remember the 5th of November... invite people round for fireworks and sparklers in the garden... charge for entry, serve jacket potatoes with chilli which are cheap and simple to do in bulk... then step back and watch the night go with a BANG!
