Community Groups

If your local group is looking for a fundraising challenge that will help prevent disease, protect the planet, and provide jobs – thank you! 

If you have a ‘rubbish’ idea, you could start your fundraising today! 

We’re here to help you fundraise in any way we can.  

Here are some ideas we came up with earlier:

Idea #1
Litter picking

A sponsored waste walk or litter-pick is a fun way to serve your local community and raise funds for a Bin Twin. Here are our top tips…  

Idea #2
Plastic-free picnic

In a safe way that complies with the government’s guidelines on social distancing, how about holding a plastic-free picnic with your group? Choose a date and a venue and challenge everyone to bring along their own lunch that does NOT include any single-use plastics (that means no cling film, plastic bags, plastic cutlery, plastic straws or disposable cups, no crisp packets or plastic sweet/chocolate wrappers). Here are some top tips on how to be plastic-free. 

Idea #3
Set up shop

Sell, sell, sell all those unwanted items uncovered in lockdown, or use your creative skills to make and trade. Plants, keyrings, face masks…

Idea #4
Brave the shave

Get buzzing to raise some cash. Film and post your head shave online for maximum support.

Idea #5
Go the distance

Set yourself an individual or group-wide sporty challenge of running, cycling (or tap dancing) for the planet… or, if you want to combine jogging with litter-picking, it’s apparently called plogging – and that might be a great way to raise enough for a Bin Twin (or two)!

Idea #6
Donate your everyday

Home working means many city folks are missing their morning coffee on the commute. But there is an instant alternative: each of you could donate the money saved for a week.
