Put the 'fun' into Fundraising this Festive season...

In the lead up to Christmas, give your Fundraising an extra boost with a few of our favourite Winter and Christmas tips!

Christmas Fair

Bring the local community together and make raising money fun with local arts and crafts at a Christmas fair. All that’s required is a school hall or village hall, some exhibitors and a bit of advertisement. Charge exhibitors £15 and £5 entry fee for everyone else. Approach a variety of exhibitors selling cupcakes, chocolates, jewellery, photography, maybe some Christmas cards... One of our walkers raised £600 from this alone!


Make up a pink Christmas hamper (ask people to donate items) and then raffle it off at work or at your fundraising event.

Homemade Preserves Sale

Why not put your culinary skills to the test and create some homemade chutneys or jams to sell? Any leftovers would make lovely Christmas presents too!

Gift Wrapping

Why not put your gift wrapping skills to use by setting up a gift wrapping stall at your local shopping centre or supermarket? You could even offer to wrap friends’ and family’s gifts at home for donations.

Marshmallows and Mulled wine

Have your children and their school friends round for a toasted marshmallow evening, invite the parents to come too, make some mulled wine and mince pies and ask for donations.

Xmas tree

Encourage your friends, family, customers and colleagues to sponsor a bauble or a ribbon to put on the Christmas tree.


Any excuse for a party (Christmas, New Year, Birthday...)! Pick a date, a theme, provide the food and drinks and invite your guests! Charge them an entry fee and make sure you have all those fantastic party games ready to maximise your fundraising.

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?

Christmas cards

Add stickers to your Christmas cards with a link to your online fundraising page, or don’t send cards at all; put half of the money you save on the cards and postage towards your fundraising. Let your friends know via an email that you are doing this.

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?

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.
