Make it Matter this Christmas

Lockdown doesn’t have to get in the way of your festive fundraising! From hosting a virtual festive movie night to online Secret Santa, raise that cash and make it matter this Christmas. 

This year things are looking a little different, but we have everything you need to help you pop your festive fundraising hat on and raise some vital funds:

  • Broadcast carols live from your living room with Carol-oke
  • Test your knowledge with a virtual Quiz Kringle
  • Get cosy with a virtual festive movie night
  • Take your Secret Santa party online
  • …or do a festive funfest of your own!

Whatever you’re planning, request your digital guide to kickstart your Christmassy fundraising journey!

Check out our top tips for starting your festive fundraising journey this year:

  1. Get inspired to choose an activity with our free festive fundraising guide.

  2. Set a time, date and venue. These days we need to get a little creative with our fundraising locations. Make sure to follow your local lockdown guidance when arranging your activities and if you can't meet in person safely, make the most of what the internet has to offer. Christmas cake Zoom filter, anyone?

  3. Spread the word. Make your own poster, set up an online fundraising page and tell all your friends, family and colleagues. If you are part of a group or association, get them involved too! The more the merrier and remember to post about it using the hashtag #MakeItMatter.
     
  4. Enjoy! Once the preparation is out of the way, you can sit back and have a wonderful time raising money for a fantastic cause.

Some of our favourite festive fundraising ideas to get that inspiration flowing:

  • Carol-oke: That's right, you heard it! It's time to grab the mic and the words to your favourite carols and have a proper singsong. Make it your own or use our guide for inspiration for a festive night you won't forget. 

  • Party Pooches: Get sponsored to parade your pooches around town in their finest festive fancy dress. Your family and friends could join you from wherever they are!

  • Winter Wrapping: Host an online wintery workshop and get wrapped up in creativity. Give all participants a list of materials and charge a small fee for access to the class. Teach everyone how to make their own wonderfully whimsical wrapping paper out of vegetable carved stamps and brown paper.

We’re always on hand to answer any questions you might have - we're here to help every step of the way.
