Christmas is coming... A Knitting Fundraiser!

Christmas is a great time for fundraising! If you’re planning on tackling a challenge next year, now’s the time to start your fundraising.

One of our fabulous fundraisers and Walk the Walker, Pat Knight, has been knitting these great little drummer boys and snowmen – absolutely adorable!

Pat says, “I started knitting to raise sponsorship money in 2017 as I needed to find a new way to raise money… rather than just ask for direct sponsorship. The whole concept took off - this is the sixth year of knitting the shelf sitters and, with the help of my sister, we have knitted over 250 of them!! We have raised nearly £4,000 with the shelf sitters alone. In addition, there have been many other knits that add every year to my fundraising. It’s a good job I love knitting as much as I love walking!”

You can find patterns for shelf sitters and other Christmas knits here.

What a wonderful and festive fundraising idea to really share that Christmas magic.

If you have a fundraising event or activity planned, take a look at our extra bits and pieces to help you... if we can help in any way, please do get in touch.

Raise money, Raise awareness, Get fit and Have the best fun Walking the Walk!
