St George’s Day Fundraiser
On 23 April we can officially celebrate all things English and we’ve designed a simple fundraiser for you.
This is the perfect opportunity for some fun-fundraising, so take your pick from the ideas below and then just sit back, think of England and watch the pounds roll in!
Host your own Special Full-English Breakfast
Start the day just right by offering a Full English Breakfast at your work-place, local hall, club or ask your local pub for the use of their kitchen. Then charge your guests / customers by the plate or for individual portions. Once you’ve covered your costs, all profit comes to TMW. It’s too tasty a fundraiser to resist!
Alternatively, you could team-up with the local butcher to produce a special Full English Home Delivery Pack. Simply put all the ingredients together in a decorated bag called ‘The Full Monty’. Then either sell them in the couple of days before the 23 April or hand deliver to individual addresses the night before.
St George’s Day falls on a Friday this year, so you could sell your English Breakfasts post-party on Saturday Morning, or why not make a St Georges weekend of it and sell them on Sunday morning as well?!
Top Tip: If you team-up with your local Butcher or Deli then you could ask for the food at cost price or free of charge in exchange for advertising their business by handing out business cards to all customers and featuring their logo and website link on posters or invites.
A Typical English Breakfast includes:
Bacon, eggs, sausages, black pudding, baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms and a couple of slices of toast. All washed down with a few cups of tea.

Other St George’s Day ideas include:
Host your own Classic English Cream Tea – This is one for the more refined palettes amongst you! Hold this in a lovely garden and invite friends and family. Why not extend the invitation to a local club or church group as well. Ask everyone to make a donation to attend or sell the goodies on offer. Serve-up delicious home-made scones with butter, clotted cream, strawberry jam and a lovely pot of tea. What a lovely way to spend the afternoon …. Croquet anyone?
Pie & Mash Night with a pint or two of best bitter, asking for donations from people for the privilege.
An East-End Quiz Night – Donate to take part with questions like, ‘Why did Dirty Den do it’ and ‘Who was always looking for her Little Willie?’ Jazz up the evening with a Cockney Rhyming Slang Quiz (who knows their Whistle and Flutes from their Kettle and Hob?)
The ultimate Ruby Murry – Seeing as Chicken Tikka Masala was voted England’s number one top dish, why not organise a St George’s fundraiser with a difference. Partner up with a local Indian Restaurant for the best curry night ever.
