Whip up some Coffee Morning Creativity

  1. Coffee and cake-away. Set up a stall for friends, neighbours or desk buddies to pop by and donate.
  2. Create your own games. Make a target on the table for guests to throw coffee beans into or guess the number of chocolate chips in a mega large cookie.
  3. Mix in a quiz. Host a quiz for your virtual office and people can donate to take part.
  4. Bake ‘n’ make. Share your favourite bake and auction off the recipe. You could bake it together virtually too.
  5. Share your fundraising page and QR codes for people to donate online. You may find guests that can’t make the day, would like to donate too.
