FOWO normally organises two Bag2School collections a year - keep an eye on the calendar for dates. Collect any good quality, reusable clothes, bedding, towels, soft toys etc that are no longer needed and bring in your bag on the collection date. FOWO is paid per kg collected. In 2022-23, we raised just over £200 from these collections.
Does your workplace offer match fundraising when you volunteer for a charity? At previous Christmas and Summer fairs, we have doubled the takings of some stalls thanks to volunteers putting their activity forward for match fundraising. Policies vary by company, so check out what your firm offers, but this can be a great way to supercharge event fundraising if you are ever volunteering for FOWO.
