flourishing fivers make it grow
what is flourishing fivers? • Flourishing fivers is a fundraising scheme for local students to take part in. • Every student/team is given £5 which they have to make “grow”. • The scheme encourages students to be creative and business minded. • AND helps to raise funds for Primrose Hospice…
what is a hospice? • Primrose Hospice is like a special hospital that helps patients when the medical team realise that they cannot make them better. • The hospice works with patients and their families through this difficult time. • Patients are treated in different ways to give them as best quality of life as possible. • We also help families to cope before and after the death of a loved one.
how to fundraise… With your £5 you could… • Buy products to sell on. • Buy materials/ingredients to make crafts or cakes to sell. • Make promotional items to advertise a service such as dog walking or car washing. • There are lots of ideas in yourfundraising toolkit! • Have you got any ideas?
accumulative fundraising This is when you use the money from your first fundraiser to make another. For example: • Use the £5 to buy ingredients to make cakes to sell. Make 100 cakes, sell them cakes at 50p each and turn £5 into £50 • Use the £50 to plan a bigger event such as a disco/party/fair. • Charge £3 for entry and if you get100 guests you will make £300…
your team • Come up with a team name. • Decide who will be responsible for money.* • Treat each other fairly and with respect – you are a team and there is NO leader! • Have regular meetings to discuss ideas and progress. • Talk to your teacher if you are not sure of anything. • Everything you need to know is in your fundraising toolkit. • You can always contact me for help or advice!
time scale The task(s) must be completed by Sunday 30th June. All money raised must be given to Primrose Hospice by Friday 12th July. The winners will be announced before the end of term.
sponsorship Sponsorship is when you ask someone to donate products or services to help you fundraise. For example: • You might ask a local shop to donate ingredients to make your cakes. • This is normally in exchange for advertising. • On your posters, use the company’s logo to show they have supported you.
finance • It is important for one person to be in charge of the money only to save confusion (this person is not more important than any other team member). • Keep a record of all your costs – for example, keep your receipts when you buy things. • At an event, make sure you have a float so you can give change to people. • Take into consideration the cost when deciding the price of a cake, etc. Do not under or over charge. • Keep your money safe!
key points • Make sure what you are doing is legal. • Publicise your event well. • Gain sponsorship where possible. • Decide as a TEAM! • Have FUN! • Any questions?
