February fundraising charity walk ideas

Make raising money and awareness for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk fun, and check out our February fundraising ideas!

As February flits into 2021, and the shy snowdrops start adorning our grassy banks and woodlands, check out our top tips for kicking that fundraising into touch, while still keeping safe!

Valentines Ready – It’s not long until Valentine’s Day! This is a great time to create a little hamper of chocolates and a bottle of Fizz to raffle off at work, either in person or using social media for those of you working from home. All you need are some scrummy chocolates, some red ribbon, a bottle of pink fizz, put it all together in some red cellophane with a big bow and you’re ready. If you are feeling creative, you could even make your own heart chocolates! Of course, you may have to try them before you put them in the box, just don’t eat them all! 

 

Virtual Pancake Flipping Competition - Who doesn’t love a pancake and 16th February is Shrove Tuesday! Invite your friends to join you via Zoom, charge them an attendance fee (payable via your fundraising page) and knock up a few pancakes in readiness. Then, the guests take it in turns to see how many flips they can do with a pancake before they drop it on the floor! You could also see who can toss theirs the highest! Afterwards, take your spare ones, add a tasty topping, and tuck in! You could also see who can create the most divine filling. Mmm, what’s not to like?

P.S. You could have a virtual raffle too as long as the prizes aren’t too heavy to send, or everyone lives in your neighbourhood.

Get fit, active and healthy! - Continue the year with a new super fit you, and challenge yourself to walk the distance of your choice every day! If you already have a fundraising page, post comments and photos about your walks, and share that page with your family and friends regularly so they can see how fit you’re getting! Not got a page and not taking part in any of the challenges? No worries! You can set up your very own My Challenge page by following this link.

Got a birthday coming up? - Why not ask for donations to your fundraising page instead of gifts? You can set up a simple fundraiser on Facebook and put the funds raised towards your challenge goal! Just drop us a line to [email protected] to let us know. 

EBay and Facebook Marketplace - It’s lockdown and if you didn’t clear everything out in the first one, now’s your chance! After you've had that big early spring clean you can gather all those unused and once loved gifts, clothes, toys, books, DVDs... Sell them on Ebay and Facebook Marketplace, or maybe you have a local website. It’s a great way to de-clutter your house and boost your fundraising total!

Dog Walking - As you head off on your daily exercise, why not offer your services to your dog owning friends and neighbours then head on out for Walkies! They will be sure to make a donation - the perfect way to raise money and increase training miles at the same time.

Charity of the Year - Could you nominate Walk the Walk as your company or organisation's Charity of the Year... meaning that any money raised for charity throughout the year could be donated to Walk the Walk? This is a great way to raise awareness of the importance of checking your breasts and raising some much needed cash!

Walk the Walk Bra Pin Badges - You can purchase a box of these for £24.99 and give them out in exchange for a suggested donation of a minimum of £2 each, which would generate a total of £75.00 plus donation per box! Many people may even make a bigger donation! Visit our website here for more details.

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!
