'The Thornton Thunderbolts' had a clear out and raised money too:
One of us organised a second-hand book sale at work with a friend kindly making cakes for sale too. We raised about £100 but it also helped to keep the event in the foreground amongst work colleagues.
Top tip: Ask friends to donate second-hand books, clothes and films to your cause.
Bake it or make it
'Landauer' cooked up a storm
"Our team comprises some quite talented cooks, so for Chinese New Year we brought a banquet of home-cooked Chinese food into our office, with each of our colleagues paying to eat all they wanted. Following the success of that, another themed lunch was planned for closer to the event. We found that by incorporating our skills and interests it has been easier to create fundraising events."
Top tip: Biscuits, cakes, savoury snacks- the options are endless for holding a bake sale.
Have a quiz
'The Mountain Pansies' got going with a quiz
"We arranged a pub quiz and approached a number of local businesses to ask for support in the form of goods we could use as quiz prizes. We had lots of fabulous prizes ranging from free coffees to meals for two. We would recommend producing an eye-catching poster that shops will put up to advertise your quiz for you. This will hopefully draw crowds to your quiz and give you a good 'opener' to talk to the proprietors about Trailtrekker. Also, do it in person- it's much harder to say no to a smiling eager Trailtrekker!"
Top tip: Find your quiz questions online and give them a Trailtrekker twist.
