Ideas to get you started!

Donors decide which option they will go for and then simply send in their donation. Or, alternatively, host a real afternoon tea!

In a hurry? Get everyone to share the amount they would have spent on ingredients for baking.

Ever the people pleaser non-uniform days brings in funds. Entertain your students by having a uniform day for the teachers.
