Fundraising in schools, colleges and universities


Hold a themed fancy dress day 

VSO university fundraisers celebrate their event vso

Everyone loves a dress up day! Why not take it one step further, by picking a theme and awarding a prize for the best outfit?

Ice cream eating

Buy huge tubs of ice cream, sprinkles, chocolate sauce and marshmallows and sell the best ice creams by the scoop as cornets on a hot day!

Fairs, fetes and bazaars

Ask your head or student union if you can use a hall, a field or even a car park and let your imagination run wild. Set up a coconut shy, apple bobbing stand, races and jumble sales. 

Film show or premiere

Stage a screening in your school or college – provide popcorn and ice cream and ask people to pay a small amount to view a blockbuster. 


Celebrate everyone’s uniqueness and talent, let them shine by putting on a show and asking for a donation for family and friends to come and watch. 

If your place of study would like to support us as your Charity of the Year, please contact us for further information.
