Hold a 'campover'. Families can pay to camp on the school fields for a night, you can arrange entertainment, a barbecue and a bonfire (suitably monitored, of course!), the children can help putting up the tents, and everyone can enjoy a bacon butty in the morning.
Hold an evening fun run/walk, organised with a map of the route, and refreshments at the end, you can have certificates for the fastest in the year group, and fastest parents! An entry fee for runners and some fundraising from the spectators, should ensure success.
Get parents to donate their professional skills to the PTA, it doesn't matter what the skill, it could come in handy for an event, or just for managing the PTA
Put on a pantomime, where the parents are the actors!!
Think about combining ideas to maximise funds. Combine a book fair with a coffee morning so people will stay longer, combine a school disco with an event for the parents, such as an auction.

Has anyone got any ideas around walking fundraising events aside from the obvious sponsored walk. We're taking part in CARE International's Walk In Her Shoes and we'd really like a walking theme. Raise £500 and we get put in a draw to meet Jacquel... read more »

We held an art exhibition. Didn't cost the school anything. Company turned up with kids art in frames and looking really professional, then parents bought their children's art and a percentage of the sale went to the school. Kids really loved it and ... read more »

For one thing, the new bill isn’t all that different to new regulations imposed by the Federal Reserve which were due to take effect in July 2010; this just moves those regulations up a few months, probably to February. Other than that, the differe... read more »
