Vulgar taste day

Sometimes known as: Free for all Friday. There’s just no accounting for bad taste. Ask colleagues or friends to pay to show off their garish taste: terrible ties, neon stockings or novelty t-shirts are lurking in everyone’s wardrobe. If they refuse, get them to pay a fine.

University Challenge

Organise a University Challenge style event (the teams don’t necessarily need to be from universities) on the theme of literature. Why not have a start for ten on “Starter for Ten” by David Nicholls or an entire round on the teachers of Hogwarts? Charge an entry fee per team and if possible offer up a book-themed prize.

Literary Lunch

If your local group is looking for a new fundraising idea, why not raise money for Read for RNIB Day with a Literary Lunch. Combine fine words and fine wine by creating a special menu on a literary theme for a memorable lunch or supper. How about a delicious curry for “Passage to India” or indulgent treats to accompany “Chocolat”?

Book sales/swap

Everyone loves a book sale or swap! Ask your friends, colleagues, classmates, family etc to bring in or donate a pre-loved book, invite everyone along and ask for a donation to take away a book and open up a whole new world of reading.

If you work for a company with more than 300 employees then you might want to consider holding a Book Event book sale.
