School Fundraising

Whether you’re raising money to help bring the Project Zulu Choir to your school or you simply want to support our work, here we have plenty of ideas to help you reach your fundraising target!

Disco – a classic fundraising event. Dance the night away to your favourite songs and help Project Zulu while you do it!


Egg decorating – hard-boil your eggs and go wild with the decorations. Line them up for a judging competition or hide them around your school for a treasure hunt.
