Fundraising Ideas for the Festive Season

Make this Christmas a wonderful opportunity to increase your fundraising and bring people together.

It will be a very different Christmas this year that’s for sure, but don’t let that stop you fundraising for vital breast cancer causes! Money raised will be making sure that small frontline cancer charities can continue to offer much needed support to people living with cancer.

Swap pressies for Donations!

If you are lucky enough to have lots of friends and family buying you pressies for Christmas, why not ask for a donation instead? It’s a Win, Win situation! You get what you want and they don’t have to browse the internet for hours!

Hamper Raffle

Making up a hamper to raffle is a great way to add to your fundraising. To get started, you can either ask people to donate items like jams, mince pies etc, or you can make or buy them. Make up the Christmas hamper and then either raffle it off at work, or if you are lucky enough to have a Christmas Fair, take a table and raffle it there. If you are working from home, you can still raffle a hamper by sharing your fundraising page for people to buy ‘virtual’ tickets.

Christmas Tree Decorations

If you are one of those lucky people who can just make, bake or grow things, then you could use your talents to create amazing little crafts to sell like one of our wonderful walkers who did just that…

    

“Having been a fundraiser for Walk the Walk for a number of years. I was finding it hard to keep asking the same people to sponsor me year on year. So I decided to put my crafting to use and make Christmas Decorations as a way of raising money. This will be my 7th year of making them and each year I do a different handmade felt decoration. People ask me as early as April what this year’s decoration is going to be!!! Over the years I’ve done Reindeer, Gingerbread Men, Snowmen, Santa, Angel, Penguins and so far raised over £3000....not bad from a little Christmas Decoration. This year’s Christmas Mouse decoration is proving very popular. Each year I sell them to family, friends and via Facebook and have even posted them to Australia, America & France.” Gynette Janney.

Christmas cards

Save on sending Christmas cards this year by sending e-cards (check out Walk the Walk's e-cards here) and donating what it normally costs to buy and post them to your page! Tell your friends you’re doing this, or you can even ask them not to give you a Christmas card this year and just donate the cost of a card to your online fundraising page... they can then leave a nice Christmas message for you there!

Christmas Lights

Do you like decorating the front of your house with lots of lights? Do you get random people visiting just to adore the decorations? Why not put a collection tub out by your gate and get some extra pennies for Walk the Walk? You could also set up a QR code leading to your fundraising page for those folk without any cash.

Christmas Dares 

Offer to do Christmas Dares in exchange for a £10 donation to your fundraising page! Who can come up with the most bizarre? Here’s a couple to get you started

  1. Sing the 12 days of Christmas with all the actions on a Zoom call
  2. Do your supermarket shop dressed as the fairy on the top of the tree

Christmas Quiz by Zoom! 

One undoubted success of Lockdown has been the quiz! This old favourite has come into its own. So, invite your friends and family to take part – for a fee of course – and gather up some Christmas themed questions from Mr Google. Add a raffle and a cocktail demonstration and you have a full on fundraiser! Now, what are the names of Santa’s reindeer…?

Unwanted gifts sale in January

We all get those gifts that we really didn’t need, so instead of leaving them at the back of your cupboard, why not sell them and donate the proceeds to Walk the Walk
