Fundraising at home, with your nearest and dearest, can be a lovely way to raise money for our Armed Forces community. If you decide to fundraise at home, we've got plenty of suggestions of how to make it special.

Hold an afternoon tea party or coffee morning

Everybody loves a piece of cake and our nation is famous for elevenses and afternoon tea. Raise money by asking guests to donate the cost of their cuppa and treats. Take a look at our Bake for Heroes fundraiser for even more ideas.

Run a ‘guess the weight of the cake’ competition and put a donation box in a prominent place to boost your donations.

Get quizzical

Host an online quiz and invite participants to donate. There are lots of ways to make your quiz a bit different: make it fancy dress and award extra points for the best dressed. There are many ready-made quizzes online so you can do your own thing or you can use our very own Big Hero Quiz.

You could even boost your fundraising by introducing fines for unsporting behaviour, or even for the team with the lowest score.

Curry night

Holding a curry night is a great way to keep connected with others. Instead of ordering from your local takeaway, why not make your own curry, get friends and family to do the same and join you for lunch or for an evening meal. Each person can pay £5 to join, or whatever they feel comfortable donating.

Virtual bingo night

Everyone loves a good bingo night so why not host an online bingo fundraiser in the comfort of your own home? You can use a website like My Free Bingo Cards to play a traditional game with a virtual caller or nominate a friend or family member to be your caller. Simply ask each person to pay £5 to take part, or whatever they feel comfortable donating.

And if bingo isn’t your thing, and you prefer word games or card games, there’s a variety of ways to play online.

Hold a sweepstake

Have a bit of fun with your friends and family, or work colleagues. You can create a sweepstake for almost anything - from a sports event to guessing the weight of the baby. Decide the entry price for all participants and how the entry money will be split between the winner and the charity and enjoy raising money for our heroes.

Note: If you are running an office sweepstake, they can only take place where all the participants are based at the same premises.
