Back to your youth’ dress down – Shock and make your colleagues laugh by dressing in your best 70’s/80’s/90’s get up.

The Great Office Bake-off – Get colleagues to bring in their homemade cakes or even have them compete in a bake-off held at your work.

Sponsored pledges – Ask your colleagues to pledge to give something up for a week or a month, in exchange for sponsorship from their teammates.

Charity birthdays – Instead of buying cake and a card, give some money to charity in honour of the birthday person

Donate your pay – Ask some of the managers and directors in your team if they would be happy to donate a day’s pay to your chosen cause.

Food and wine night - For a more sophisticated themed food event then run a food and wine tasting night to raise money for your cause.

Quiz night – Include a round on company knowledge to make it more personalised!

Movember/Hairless fundraisers - Get the men in your life to grow a beard or moustache for charity. Or for all genders, make a bold move of shaving your hair completely and get the recognition it deserves by offering people the chance to bid to shave your head.

Alumni networking luncheon - Why not ask for donations or voluntary involvement of any kind for your cause, who work in the same or related fields
