<Fundraising Ideas>

Looking for inspiration on how you can get involved and help brighten lives? The team at Rays of Sunshine are on hand to help find the perfect fundraising idea for you, whatever your age, interests or time commitments. Take a look at some of our suggestions below or get in touch with our team today to get started.
Virtual Quiz

Put your trivia skills to the test by hosting your own virtual quiz. A great way to have fun with family and friends while helping to brighten the lives of seriously ill children. Ask for a small donation to take part and raise extra funds on the night with a game or a raffle.

Sunshine Bake-Off

Challenge your friends, family or colleagues to a Sunshine Bake-Off. Charge a small fee to take part and virtually bake along together, with a prize for the best-looking cake at the end. Download our Sunshine Bake-Off pack here.

Sponsored challenge

Take on a personal challenge and ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you – whether it’s giving up something you love for a month, staying silent for a week, staying awake all night or even shaving your head!

Donate your morning coffee

If working from home is saving you money on your morning coffee, why not choose to donate what you would have spent to Rays of Sunshine instead?


Clear out any impulsive lockdown purchases and help brighten lives at the same time. Sell off any old or unwanted goods on eBay and donate the money you make to Rays of Sunshine.

Sunshine Gamers

Raise money while playing your favourite games. Host a gaming marathon, tournament or livestream and recruit your family and friends to support. For more gaming ideas and inspiration, download our fundraising pack here.

Sunshine Social

Host your own ‘socially distant social’. Get your friends and family together for a virtual night in – whether it’s a movie night, a game night or a dinner party. Ask guests to donate what they would have spent on a night out to Rays of Sunshine.

Step challenge

Challenge yourself to walk at least 15,000 steps a day for a whole month in return for sponsorship. Add an element of competition by recruiting some team-mates to join you, with a prize for the person who takes the most steps overall.
