How do I take part? 🤔

Plan a fancy dress day at your workplace or school and recruit as many people as possible to take part.

Pick a fancy dress theme (see our suggestions below), choose a date and get the word out to your colleagues and friends. See our tips on how to promote your activity to maximise donations. 

Ask participants for a set donation or whatever they wish to give. You could also plan some other activities on the day to raise extra cash like a bake sale or a sweepstake.

How much does it cost? 💷

Nothing. All we ask is that you raise as much as you can for Blind Veterans UK.
