Father's Day is nearly here!

Hi everyone,

This Sunday you may be celebrating your wonderful dad as it is Father’s day, and I couldn’t resist sharing some top fundraising tips!

Why not hold a ‘competitive dad competition’ after your Sunday Roast and raise funds for MS-UK? You could get all generations of the family involved in something as simple as ‘minute to win it’ style challenges, where people pay 50p to enter. These challenges could be something like eating as many cream crackers in a minute to picking up smarties with chopsticks. Get inspired with this YouTube video.

To get you in the mood, here’s one of my favourite ‘minute to win it’ games, expertly demonstrated by father and son, Ben and George…

Cotton Ball Nose

What you’ll need…

  • Vaseline
  • A bag of cotton wool balls
  • Two paper plates

How to play…

Place cotton wool balls onto one paper plate. Players put a blob of Vaseline onto their noses and put their hands behind their back. They then have to transport the cotton wool ball to the other plate by using only their nose. Only one cotton wool ball can be moved at any time! They have one minute to transfer as many as possible. Whoever moves the most is the winner.

Good luck everyone, and happy Father’s Day!

Best wishes,


Events Fundraiser
