Auction – Ask people to donate unwanted items or auction an online skill that someone could learn. Other ideas might include auctioning restaurant meals (now they have re-opened) or home-made luxury hampers. You could also try auctioning a 'service' that can be carried out in a socially distanced way – cutting a neighbour's grass, offering DIY skills for one weekend or baking a celebratory cake. Once you have your list you can host a virtual auction via video platform with donations going to SRUK.
Afternoon Tea - Who doesn't like an afternoon cuppa and a good chat? Whether you meet online by video call, outside in your garden or in your home, there's nothing better than getting together with friends and family for tea and a slice of cake. Bake your own cakes or try a themed afternoon tea party to get some extra donations – Mad Hatter's Tea Party anyone? We might be social distancing but nothing gets in the way of our Great British cuppa!
