Organise your own event

Not everyone wants to climb a mountain or run a marathon. Whatever your interests, hobbies or talents there are many different ways you can do something amazing to raise money for Build Africa.

Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • Get your friends together for a coffee morning
  • Test everyone's knowledge with a pub quiz
  • Run a raffle in the office
  • See how long you can stay silent with a sponsored silence
  • Sing your heart out at a karaoke evening with your friends
  • Dare to shave all your hair off or grow a beard
  • Or why not give up one birthday and ask for donations instead of presents?

You could sell your services by:

  • Washing cars
  • Mowing your neighbours’ lawns
  • Holding a dinner party at your home, cooking a sumptuous meal and charging guests to attend
  • Or simply commit to doing something you've always wanted to do. Set yourself a challenge - and ask people to sponsor you for it
