Girl Guiding & Scouts

Teach your scouts/girl guiding group the importance of philanthropy early on by helping them to organise their own fundraiser for Rays of Sunshine.

It is a wonderful and exciting way to teach the younger generation important team building, communication and leadership skills, all whilst raising money to put smiles on the faces of seriously ill children.


There are plenty of easy fundraisers that you can help your girl guides or scouts to organise, here are a few of our favourites:

Bake Sale

Organise a bake sale during club time in the local community – get the children involved by asking them to create and put up posters, baking, making labels, setting up and collecting donations.

Bucket Collection

Bucket collections are a really fun and easy way to raise money and spread awareness throughout the local community. You simply need to get in contact with a local shopping centre or the council, depending on the location, and get a permit to bucket collect. We’d be happy to send out any resources to help make your fundraiser a great success!

Smarties Challenge

Give all of your group a tube of smarties and challenge them to fill them up with 20p’s (which fit perfectly inside!) Each tube can hold £12, so this is a really simple and fun way to raise money and let the children think of their own ways to earn the money at home! To make it even more exciting, you could incentivise it by giving them a ‘charity badge’ afterwards to wear with pride.

Promote your fundraiser

Setting up a JustGiving page is the easiest way to get donations. Make sure to spread your page far and wide on social media and with friends and family.
