Fundraising Ideas and Resources for Schools

A group of school children in a playground.

Stuck on how to get your school involved with fundraising? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a handy list of ideas and all the resources you need to have a cracking time.

Gromit’s Grand Read

Books at the ready! Challenge your pupils to read a number of books of your choosing throughout the term with Gromit’s Grand Read. This can be a team effort, but you could make it a competition between classes. 

Wallace & Gromit’s  BIG Bake

Why not add a BIG Bake stall to your summer fete this year for a day jam-packed with fundraising sweetness, or hold a cupcake decoration competition? To make sure your event is piped to perfection, we’ve put together a cracking kit containing all the ingredients for a truly delicious day.

Get sporty

Take on a sponsored run and encourage your pupils to see how many laps of the playground, park, or garden they can do. You could also raise funds from your annual sports day. Have pupils race against teachers, host inter-class sports matches, or organise a sponsored star jump competition. 

Gromit’s  sponsored  silence

Is your school filled with little chatterboxes? Gromit doesn’t express himself with spoken words, but his facial expressions and body language speak volumes! Will your classes manage to communicate as effectively as Gromit and without breaking the silence?

Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day

Take part in the most unique dress-down day of the year – Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day. The idea is simple: wear your wackiest and most wonderful trousers and make the classroom your catwalk.

Wallace’s cracker of a spell-a-thon

The eccentric inventor loves cheese and with over 500 varieties to choose from, what better way to challenge your super spellers than testing their dairy knowledge? For the younger competitors, there’s the added option of a cheesy word search too.
