Promises auction

Auction off a promise to the highest bidder. Promises can include: taking the bins out for a week, making the tea for the entire team or a promise not to swear every time you open your inbox. Email round or put up a poster offering your promises and encourage bidders to put a post-it note on the poster or email back with their offer. Here’s hoping for a bidding war!

Sunflower growing competition

This one takes a little bit of planning! Acquire some sunflower seeds from your local garden centre, email/put up posters to encourage entrants, ask for a donation for three or four seeds and see who can grow the tallest sunflower over the next couple of months. Photo evidence is great and where possible communal growing is encouraged. Set a time or height limit to increase the tension

Board game evenings

Who doesn’t love a board game? Either host an event yourself or ask a local community centre, café or Scout hall. Ask people to bring along their favourite games – making sure to bring along a few yourself – and ask for a donation to play.
