Festive fundraising ideas

Christmas bake-along

Whip up some sweet treats with friends or colleagues via video chat. Mince pies, cookies or even a gingerbread house – pick your favourite festive recipes and get baking! Everyone donates a small amount to take part.

Festivise your workplace

Turn your workspace into a winter wonderland. Think baubles, tinsel, flashing lights… anything Christmassy! This is great at work or at home – you could also turn it into a team competition. We recommend a donation of £4 each. Get started by downloading our branded bunting below.

Scavenger Hunt

A bit of old-fashioned fun updated for the here and now. Be the first to return to your video call (or designated spot, if you’re at work) with something red, a wrapped present, a half-eaten mince pie, or whatever crazy category you come up with. This is great for those with a competitive streak. Charge a small fee per person.

Knit-mas Day

Get into the festive spirit by dressing up in your most Christmassy clothes. Santa costumes, reindeer antlers, cheesy Christmas knitwear - or anything red and green. You could even buy a special Santa jumper from our online shop.

Reindeer sweepstake

Guess the name of Santa’s new reindeer and win £50 (clue: it’s not Rudolph!). Ask people to make a £2 suggested donation and choose their reindeer name. Once all the reindeers have been claimed, pop them in a hat and draw the winner. Download your sweepstake poster below.

With Christmas around the corner, now’s the time to expand your culinary repertoire. Set up a ‘MasterChef’ WhatsApp group and share your creations and top tips. Back in the workplace? Make sure you bring your delicious dishes in! Ask for a small donation to take part.

Use our e-card templates instead of buying, writing and posting paper cards. You can then donate the money you save – we recommend 50p per card, plus the cost of a first class stamp. Or, get your team to dress up and make a festive team photocard.!
