Fundraising Ideas

Sporting Challenge

Every wanted to complete a 5k, 10k, half or even full marathon? Then why not get fit and raise money at the same time. You may have a sporting idea of your own or are already part of team wanting to do a charity match. Bungee Jump anyone?

Bake for Books

Get everyone in your office or club to bake some cakes, bring them in and sell. If someone is really creative maybe they could make a BOOK cake and raffle it off or guess its weight. However small or big the cakes it’s a scrummy way to raise money.

Bring and Buy Book Stall

Everyone has lots of books they no longer read but can’t bear to throw away – and who would! So how about sell them at a bring and buy book stall? Childrens books are always very popular and any books left over you can donate directly to The Library – win win!

Who is your Favourite Character?

Ever wanted to be Harry Potter or The Gruffelo for the day? Or maybe the BFG? Whatever your chosen character you could get your school or office or group to dress up for the day and make a donation.

My Donate

The easiest way to help is to directly donate via our link on the website. And why not contact us to make a book suggestion whilst you are there.

Sponsored Something

Silence, read, walk, dance, swim, bounce…..the list is endless. Children, adults and even the pet dog can join in with this one.


Host a book/literature section in your local pub quiz or create your own. Get friends together or organize a bigger Quiz. Don’t forget a prize for the winning team, and a wooden spoon for the team who comes last.

Race Night

Host a race night and have some fun whilst raising money at the same time.

Fancy Dress Party

"Being able to read books in a print size I can see is fantastic. The paper large print books available are still too small to enjoy comfortably. The range of books available through Seeing Ear is great as there are books I can read for myself and books I can read to and with my children."
