Need some inspiration?

Berry Street fundraisers host all sorts of events. Here are just some ideas.

How to Guides Movie Night

Movie night

Who doesn't love a good movie!? This is one of the easiest – and most fun – ways to raise funds. Many local cinemas have small theatres for private screenings, or you can book out a couple of rows and invite your friends, family and co-workers. Throw in some snacks or a drink, and you’ve got a great night out!

Fundraising ideas

Trivia night

Trivia nights are one of the most popular ways to raise funds – who doesn’t love a challenge, surrounded by your mates!? Pubs and community halls might provide venues for free or low cost for charity fundraising. Add some snacks, a raffle or silent auction, and your fundraising is sorted!

How to Guides Foodie Delights

Foodie delights

If you love to bake, love a night out, or just love good food, organise an event at a cafe, pub, your office or your school. You can run any food-related event, from a morning tea or bake sale to sausage sizzle or a lush three-course meal. Chat to your favourite cafe, restaurant or pub about group bookings.

Other Ideas Fundraising

Other event ideas

Run a raffle through your community group or workplace. Ask people to donate gold coin donations for a holiday program or a dress casual day.
