For Christmas comes but once a year….make this the best one yet by raising money for Chestnut Tree House. Some of our favourite ideas to make your fundraising Christmas-inspired.
Mince pies, gingerbread or yule log – get everyone to bake their favourite festive treats and crown the winner Star Baker. Dish out your delicacies at the end and ask for a donation.
Board Games are a fabulous way to lift spirits. Get fundraising by getting people involved in games that can be played virtually such as Pictionary and Charades!
Whether you’re at home, in the office or at school, break out the baubles and hold a Deck Your Desk competition. Charge a small entry fee and be sure to vote for your favourite festive makeover.
How about a Christmas morning dip in the sea? Some people do this for free, but you can drum up support by sharing your post-dip-selfie alongside a link to your fundraising page.
You could add a donate button to a Facebook post. Perhaps friends and family won’t be going out as much this Christmas, encourage them to donate what they might have spent on going to the theatre, restaurants. Or ask for your Christmas presents as a donation
Get everyone in the festive spirit by organising a Christmas raffle and ask local businesses to donate some prizes. Or what about an online auction? Click here for our handy raffle guidelines
Release your inner quiz master by hosting a Christmas quiz and asking entrants to donate to play. For handy tips on how to host a virtual quiz click here.
Have unwanted Christmas gifts from last year? Launch an online auction offering gifts to bid on or donate to our retail shops
Donate the cost you would usually spend on cards and stamps
Don your Christmas outfit, gather a small group and walk for Chestnut Tree House. Pick your distance and ask people to sponsor you. Together, you will be making a difference with every step you take.
Ask colleagues if they’ll be kind enough to donate their last hour’s pay before Christmas.
Good at getting crafty? Jump on the personalised retail trend and use a platform like MyCharityMarketplace.com to sell your own one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts
Remember your fundraising will help to provide vital care for children in your local community
