Get Inspired with charity marathon Winter Fundraising Ideas!

Raise money for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk by doing something you love... or that's good for you... as you prepare for your charity marathon!

New year, new fundraising ideas! Get your fundraising off to a quick start and raise money for Walk the Walk by doing something you love... or something that's good for you! Take a look at our great winter fundraising ideas below.

Say No to Naughties and give up something next month or for Lent - Give up your favourite food or drink for a set time (sweets, chocolate, or snacks, you choose) and donate the money you save. Or after the merriment of the festive season, you could get your friends to sponsor you to give your body a break from the booze? You might raise more than you think from giving up the drink! Not only will you feel healthier in yourself, but you will raise money in the process and getting fitter... it’s a double whammy!

No need to get in a pickle over your fundraising - Put your culinary skills to the test and create some homemade chutneys to sell! If you have loads of cheese left over from the Christmas period, then this will be a great time to give those homemade chutneys a go. Try experimenting with some sweet chilli, or red onion or even green tomato chutney, they pair wonderfully with cheese and biscuits and you could even make up a little hamper to raffle off. This could be the start of your very own chutney empire!

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!

Valentines Ready – Are you ready for Valentines Day? This is a great time to create a little hamper of chocolates and a bottle of Fizz to raffle off at work. All you need is some heart shape chocolates and 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! 

Candle Party - Fancy a girly night in? This is the perfect fundraiser... just contact a party plan candle company who can provide a representative for a party... invite your friends, family and anyone else you would like to attend! Provide some drinks and nibbles and encourage them to buy, buy and buy... you can then add the commission you make to your fundraising total.

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.

Unwanted gifts sale - We all get those gifts that we really don’t need, so instead of leaving them at the back of your cupboard, you could sell them and put the proceeds on your online fundraising page? Friends and family may be happy to give you their unwanted gifts too!

Another way to make use of any unwanted gifts is to use them to make up raffle prizes for a grand raffle to be held at any event you are planning, or just to have at work.

If you have a fundraising event or activity planned, take a look at our list of little extra to help you make the event a success.
