Local Bunnings or Mitre 10 are great opportunities with lots of foot traffic. These are good to book in advance.
Selling edible goods
Many playgroups have been successful in partaking in Cookie Dough Fundraisers, Olive Oil and Chocolates or a bake sale. Scheduling them around different occasions also works well for e.g. Chocolates around Easter / Mothers Day.
Tip: $1 Freddo and Caramello Koala boxes are a popular option and have proved to be easier to sell
Selling other non-perishable goods
Look outside the box – goods such as kites, socks, beeswax paper, tea towel keepsakes etc. are a creative and different approach that the usual chocolate boxes. Stuck on Your Fundraising is a popular option.
Hosting a Cinema Event
Hosting an event
Organise an event for local families and children such as a community disco, messy play day, bingo or quiz night.
Hosting a stall
Look at what local community events are happening in your area and host a stall and hold a bake sale or sell homemade playdough
Visit local businesses from your community and ask for goods, services or experiences to be donated to create a big raffle with multiple prizes to be won. Creating a poster for the businesses to display is a good way to spread the message.
