Dryathlon Fundraising Tools and Ideas

Fundraising ideas

At work

  • Office treats: Treat your colleagues to some home baking with a good old fashioned bake sale or tuck shop at your office
  • Pint on the desk: Laying off the booze will mean you’re fresher than ever at work. A pint glass on your desk is the perfect way for your colleagues to show their appreciation – see if you can get it full of spare change by the end of the month!

Down the pub

  • Be the designated driver: A great way to rack up some more donations is to be the designated driver for a night out with your mates. Get your chauffeur cap on, reel in the tips and enjoy the morning hangover-free. 
  • Dress up: Wear your pyjamas, a gorilla outfit or even a onesie to your local for a sure-fire way of getting people talking about Dryathlon. Then turn those drink offers into donations!

Fundraising events

  • Host a sober disco: We’ve all heard of silent discos. How about getting your mates together and holding a sober one? ​
  • Mocktail night: Organise a mocktail night and charge people a donation on entry. Anyone for an Abstinence on the Beach?
