Whip up some Coffee Morning creativity

  1. Coffee and cake-away. Set up a stall for friends, neighbours or work buddies to pop by and donate.
  2. Create your own Coffee Morning 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 guests and people can donate to take part.
  4. Bake ‘n’ make. Share your favourite bake and auction off the recipe. Baking for charity can be virtual too by having a group video call.
  5. Share your charity 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.
