Can you sell space on advertising boards around the edges of your green, or on the pavilion?
Is there an expert among you who could use their knowledge to help raise funds. For example, this could be an amateur historian willing to donate an evening for a lecture, or a well-traveled club member with plenty of tales to tell. Whoever your expert is, charge admission for the event and sell refreshments to raise money.
It may not be an original idea, but it sure is popular. Organise a cake morning and bring along delicious treats to sell to friends and family.
Is there a local walk or hill climb which your group can take on for charity. Even a walking trip around the local pubs can be approached as a fundraising challenge!
Funding is available to many organisations in the UK through lottery funding. The Big Lottery Fund is one such group who support hundreds of UK community and voluntary causes. Visit their website to find out more about eligibility.
Do you have any green fingered gurus among your members? It is easy to nurture a few different species of flower, herb or vegetable plants to adulthood and then sell the plants in small pots at a community sale.
