Get Crafty


Ask people to donate unwanted items, advertise and set up a stall to sell things in a safe place.

Bake Cakes

Bake some cakes (or ask people to make some for you) and hold a cake sale.

Talent Evening

Organise a talent evening with friends and family for some entertainment that people could pay to take part and attend.

Poster design

Design a poster based on something you think is special about Viva. Make cards or art work that you could then sell to friends and family.

Papier mâché

Using papier-mâché, have a go at making bowls, jewellery or sculptures which you could then decorate and sell.

Some ideas here


If you are good at drawing – use one of the Viva pictures of a child and have a go at drawing it in pencil or doing a painting which you could then frame and sell.

Something for a rainy day


Do a sponsored read – how many books in a day


A sponsored silence – how many hours can you go without speaking? No cheating!

Zoom quiz

Zoom quiz! Get as many people together as possible over Zoom and hold a quiz afternoon, ask for donation to Viva from each team taking part!

Letter writing

Sponsored letters! Spend a day writing letters or cards of encouragement to different people from Viva’s networks. Pass on the letters to us here in the office and we will make sure the people get them!

Gaming night

Gaming night! Get your friends together for a gaming marathon with small entry fee as a donation to Viva.


Gather together any Lego you have and challenge your friends and family to get creative! Pay to take part!

Get outside


If you are a swimmer – consider doing a sponsored swim

Cuddly Toy

Name a cuddly toy – people could pay to come up with the best name idea as part of a raffle to win the cuddly toy at the end


Show off your skills in a sponsored penalty shootout as part of a football fundraiser. Put the goalie in fancy dress to make their job harder!
