We have put together a fun guide with lots of inspirational ideas for fundraising activities or events you can run. Raise money for a vital cause whilst having fun! Over the years fundraising activities have included making coffee for donations; wearing blue for Cobalt days and involvement in our challenge events.

Brew and bake

Get together with friends and set up a bake sale together. Whether it's at work or a local venue, you can't go wrong with tea and cake! Tickets to an afternoon event are always popular and you can do extra fundraising at the event by having an auction.

Football and netball tournament

A great fundraiser as a match between friends, or for something bigger ask everyone to enter teams into a tournament. Raise funds by charging a player fee.

Manicure and makeover

Host a pamper party and swap skills to give each other makeovers and manicures.

Treasure hunt

As big or as simple as you like, this could be a race in groups across locations or something as simple as a grid map where you sell of the squares to give people a chance of choosing the winning coordinates.

Challenge yourself

Make a change and get sponsored – whether it is giving up cake for a month or running to the Devil’s Chimney and back, challenge activities are a great way to raise money for Cobalt.

Games night

Host an evening of games and challenges. Add a bit of extra fundraising into the night by giving penalty fines for being late or talking about work!

Quiz night

An easy one to host, whether it's in a pub, church hall or at home. For an evening of relaxed entertainment, ask groups for an entry fee and find your quiz questions online.


Gather a group of friends and pick your route, you'll be keeping fit and raising money for vital research at the same time.

Dress blue for Cobalt

Get yourself sponsored – how many days can you go wearing blue for Cobalt or can you encourage your company or school to go Blue for Cobalt?


Always a classic. This is for friends who don't mind being a bit silly in front of each other for a night that's guaranteed to be fun.


Ask around locally to drum up some donated prizes and sell off your tickets to friends, family and colleagues alike.


If you're feeling energetic and want a physical challenge that lots of people can take part in, then this is a great way to raise sponsorship together.
