Has anyone got some good ideas, age ranges from year 7's to upper 6th (12-18)

so far ive got cake stalls, which make a good amount as people donate the cakes. 'casual' days when they pay £2 to wear casual clothes and a colour day (green or blue) where you have to wear something of the chosen colour.

Are you allowed to take the kids away from the school? If so:
* a collection at a supermarket (helping pack bags for a donation) would raise a few hundred pounds for a morning. All youd do is phone the supermarket and most will allow this (you will need security sealed buckets that a charity would lend you)
* collecting outside a panto. Phone your nearest theatre ASAP for this years shows, get a message to the 'star' via a card saying what you are collecting for and ask for them to announce this at the end of the show. Have people collecting at the front door.
Got loads more if they're not right for you (used to be an events fundraiser lol)

Hmmm lol fair point!!
OK so why not a charity jail break! Get a few of the older pupils to 'kidnap' the headmaster (or one of the teachers!) and hold him to ransom? The more money the raise the longer he's stays in 'jail'!

they've already done it, apart from their so inventive. its called the wow factor. amazing i know. its taken too seriously, they film auditions and performances and then have to have someone famous to send a video message to everyone or be a judge. then for the final it was at the local spa.

im thinking maybe a christmas talent show. 50p to watch?

Why not get some of the older girls to do make overs for the younger ones, you know the usual stuff, nails, hair etc. You could charge them £1 a go

bring and buy stall, everyone brings a donation, old toys games books etc, and hopefully they all buy something too.

My kids' school usually writes to local businesses and asks if there's any donations or anything they want to give for a grand raffle (tesco usually oblige with a few electrical items and the such like), these kind of raffles with quality new stuff on them usually rake in the money but there you're relying on the generosity of the businesses near you.
With halloween coming up you could have a halloween party/after school disco/ball thing (basically fancy dress party) but then you're looking at chaparones (teachers usually oblige) and hiring of some sort of disco equipment but ticket sales recoup these costs easily.
The kids' school also has a kind of hamper stall. They have various days where the kids have to "bring a bottle" (anything goes from shampoo to wine) and they wrap some things up together in cute little wicker baskets and have a kind of lucky dip raffle - you pull a ticket out and it states if you're a winner or not think it's a like 1:8 ratio for winners or something like that.
With the other bottles they sometimes have a bottle stall (bottle have raffle tickets on them 0 and 5 are winners etc) and last year they had a ring toss with the bottle stall - however it was a bit dodgy as some of the bottles were glass but it was cool to throw the rings at the bottles and if it landed on one you won it.
They also had a large projector screen and ran a wii games tournament - the bowling and the tennis and the winner at the end of the tournament got some prize but they had to pay to have a shot.
A none money earner would be a dvd swap shop which would benefit the kids as they'd get to swap a dvd or cd they dont want for something they did (however you have to careful to check for copies and 15/18 rated dvds as these aren't suitable for some)
