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.
Take a Christmas morning swim in the sea, share your post-dip selfie with the link to your fundraising page and drum up support! Or inspire your friends and family to donate by promising to do it in in your Reindeer Fun antlers and red nose if you reach a certain amount!
ou could add a donate button to a Facebook post, or if your birthday is in December hold a Facebook birthday fundraiser!
