Plant sale

What is it?

  • Organise a plant sale and support the British Red Cross!
  • Raise money by growing lots of plants and selling them for a suggested donation.

What you’ll need

  • Seeds or seedlings to grow lots of plants from
  • A date to have your sale, once you know that you’ll have enough plants for it
  • A stall
  • Suggested donation prices for each of your plants on sale
  • Friends to help you run the stall
  • A venue for your sale
  • Permission from your youth leader or teacher
  • A way of making sure everybody knows about it so they can come along. Think about the ways you can do this – maybe using posters, newsletters or announcements
  • A safe, sealed or lockable place to keep the money you raise
  • Someone who can write a cheque for the amount you raise

Top tips

  • Spring is a good time to start growing your plants.
  • You’ll need to start growing far enough ahead of when you want to hold your sale for the plants to be ready.
  • Make sure you have plenty of time to tell everyone about it.

All about the money

  • Once the event is over and you’ve collected all the money, post us a cheque (made payable to the British Red Cross) for the amount you raised, along with a copy of the banking form from the module five facilitator's notes. Our address details are also on the same page as the form.
  • If you have any questions about sending us money or want to ask for other advice, please contact our fundraising team on 0844 412 2728 or getfundraising@redcross.org.uk
