– olunteers to help with candy canes and on the night
– candy cane delivery selling this week and delivery this week

Think about things that cuth’s enjoy specifically and use these to raise money

7. Ideas
RAG Raids (DUCK)
– pay £10, covers food and accommodation
– people raise about £100 each
– encourage people to go in groups
– cuth’s takes on edinburgh – advertise as a night out in edinburgh?
Charity sports matches
– summer term
– people playing sports that aren’t their own
– sell food
– donations to watch
Cuth’s Holi Festival (summer term)
Fun Run
– along the bailey/from bailey to brooks/palace green
Charity formal
– increase tickets by £1 for the air ambulance
Awkward formal
– valentine’s day

More fun formals
Money for DUCK can still go straight to the charity we want butstill counts towards out annual total
