Get inspired for your summer fundraising activities with our Croc-tastic Competition winners' fundraising ideas!

Sarah (10) was the overall winner with her film night, where you can host a Roald Dahl film night, dress up as your favourite Roald Dahl character, provide drinks and snacks for guests and give a donation to Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity.

Azaria, (5) had the idea to arrange a teddy bears picnic and you can pay to attend with donations going to Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity. Prizes could be awarded to best teddy story, best cake, best picnic, best layout and oldest teddy.

Isabella, (9) came up with a homemade movie idea: Children will be sponsored to make a short movie clip from their favourite Roald Dahl book. They can use a phone/iPad to film it and either be in the firm (with friends) or use puppets. They need to get into character and have lots of fun!

Isabella, (6) had a drawing based idea: Children could get sponsored to draw as many characters as they can from each Roald Dahl book and at the end draw people could donate some more money to buy their favourite.

Or you can get creative and come up with your own idea! Good luck :-)

And don't just take it from us, here's Doctor Who star and Croc-tastic Competition judge, Jodie Whittaker explaining why it's so important to take part in fundraising activities for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity this summer:
