As the weather warms up, people try to get more active and involved with sports, especially around the World Cup and Wimbledon Championships, so it’s a great theme to use for corporate events, work parties and fundraisers. The great thing about sports themed events is that you don’t have to be that fantastically talented to have fun and raise money for your company’s chosen charity, so we’ve rounded up some ideas for you to try.
- 5-a-side football. You can do inter-department or even get some other local companies involved and making teams for an informal kick-about and some friendly rivalry. See if you can invite the local press along for extra coverage (and free advertising!) and donate ticket proceeds to your chosen charity.
- Sponsored Keepy-uppy. Whether just one person is doing it, a whole department or you get your whole community involved, grab some hacky sacks and get people to sponsor you based on the length of time you last. Our 12 panel hacky sacks can be personalised with your company’s logo and used as a promotional giveaway as well.
- Fun Run. Sponsored runs are perhaps one of the easiest charity events to organise, but you may have to arrange public liability insurance and people taking part will have to do a bit of training to prepare them. This does however mean that you and your colleagues will get into fantastic shape whilst raising money for a good cause.
