Do It Yourself: Movie nights

EVENT OVERVIEW

All throughout the year
Whenever you choose
Host a movie night for donations to St Christopher's
Wherever you choose

Movie nights are easy organise, fun and terrific fundraisers.

You simply pick a movie that your friends fancy watching, choose a date and treat your friends to some tasty snacks.

After watching the movie and enjoying the treats, each of your guests donated as much as they think fit. So get ready to sit back and relax while enjoying a movie favourite all the while raising funds for St Christopher’s.

Snacks

Popcorn: Head straight for a bag of kernels. Fresh popcorn is just pennies to make but it can raise pounds for St Christopher’s. You can top this with either sweet or savoury delights –  butter, salt, black pepper, garlic & herb, peanut butter, cinnamon sugar. The best bit is you can be as creative as you like.  This is a great way to thank your guests for “popping” by.

Cinnamon Mini Waffles: You don’t need to be the perfect baker to make these treats. All you need is a box of vanilla cake mix and just add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. It really is that easy! You could complement this by drizzling a frosting over the top (vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate).

Dress up your ice cream: Whether you are a kid, or just a kid at heart there is no better way to scoop up fun than adding an array of toppings to your store bought ice cream. Melted mars bar, nuts, coconut flakes, chocolate digestive biscuits, ginger nuts, toffee popcorn, warmed Nutella, honey, lemon curd.

Pizza: No-knead to make the dough from scratch, you can either pick up store bought pizza bases or puff pastry ready rolled.

There are plenty more yummy food ideas for you to try; nachos, crudités and dip, sundaes, hot dogs, crisps and salsa. We’d love to hear your snack ideas so please get in touch.
