Easter is just around the corner, and knowing that we’ll never let the chance of a little fundraising pass us by, we’ve found 7 brilliant Easter-themed fundraising ideas. Perfect for getting staff and clients involved, these ideas give you an easy way to raise money for your industry charity, whilst having a little fun along the way!
1. In-salon Egg Hunt
It goes without saying that no-one is ever too old for an Easter egg hunt. So why not hide your Easter goodies around the salon, and ask for a donation from those wanting to take part? Add a little incentive, and guarantee that no-one will come away empty handed with a chocolate prize for everyone.
2. Decorate an Egg Competition
A classic Easter tradition! Provide the eggs (make sure they’ve been boiled!) and anything needed for decorating, and ask for a small donation to enter an egg. Take names and phone numbers so the winner can be contacted, and be sure to send them a little something in congratulations.
3. Easter Themed Bake Sale
Think bunny-shaped biscuits, hot cross buns, crème egg brownies. Ask your staff to get baking, and sell what’s been made to your clientele. Everyone’s got a sweet tooth around Easter, no doubt they won’t be able to resist! The hardest part will be not eating the lot yourselves!
4. Best Bonnet Competition
Get your staff to put on their thinking caps and compete to make the best Easter bonnet. Get creative – the more outlandish, the better! Ask clients to vote on their favourite for a small donation.
If you wanted to include clients in this competition, however, you could set up a craft table with the essentials for making a bonnet, and ask for a small fee to enter.
5. Giant Easter Egg Raffle
Raffles always go down a treat, and with a giant Easter egg as the prize, there’ll be no doubt of it! Sell tickets for 5 for £1, and encourage clients to try their luck. Alternatively, make up an Easter themed hamper and include it in a raffle.
6. Easter Themed Hairstyles
Be bold and get sponsored to dye your hair, choosing from a variety of Easter colours. Pastels, pinks, baby-blues, maybe a little bit of green? The more out-there, definitely the better!
7. How Many Mini Eggs in the Jar
Fill a jar with Mini Eggs, and ask people to guess how many there are in it. Whoever gets closest to the right amount wins the jar!
