Forget Star Wars, it’s time for Penny Wars!!!

pennywarsI’m a firm believer that fundraising doesn’t have to be difficult and the best ways can be the simplest and often turn out to be the most fun!

A great office or student fundraiser can be a game of penny wars. Each team or contestant has a clear jar. The aim of the game is to fill your jar with 1p coins, the more pennies the more points. However, you can sabotage other players’ jars by giving them negative points, a coin that is anything other than a 1p. For example, drop a 20p coin into another player’s jar and that amounts to 20 negative points.

The winner is the person with the most amount of pennies in their jar, it’s really competitive which makes it a fantastic office or university fundraiser and everyone can get involved.

Now sending in jars of pennies isn’t the safest (or cheapest!) way to get your funds to us. But you can send a cheque payable to MS-UK and our address is MS-UK, Unsworth House, Hythe Quay, Colchester, CO2 8JF.

Just be sure to include a note to let us know who has sent it and how you raised the money. Then we can send you a certificate to say thank you!!

If you have any easy fundraising ideas that you want to share, or have taken part in one, don’t forget you can email me any time, I’d love to hear from you!

And let the Penny Wars commence!
