12 Days of Fundraising this Christmas

We have 12 fabulously festive fundraising ideas to keep you busy throughout December! Whether you`re a keen runner, baker, crafter or simply like taking on an interesting challenge, there is an idea for everybody!

12 Days of Fundraising

Here is a list of our 12 days of fundraising ideas! If you have any questions or would like any help with your fundraising, please get in touch.

1) Santa Dash

Whether it’s a 5K run around your local park or a 20k walk around your city, pop on your Santa hat, grab your trainers get sponsored to do your very own Santa Dash.

2) Virtual Carol Concert

Wherever you are, join us for the virtual GOSH Carol Concert and enjoy popular carols, readings from our patients, celebrity guests and special musical performances. You can also take part in our exclusive silent auction and raffle! 

3) Be a GOSH elf

Channel your inner festive Elf and help out throughout December. Ask for donations in return for present wrapping, card writing, dog walks or a festive taxi service.

4) Socially distant festivities

Social distancing doesn’t mean the fun stops! Hold a virtual Festive Film Night, Christmas Quiz or Wine and Cheese Evening. Ask for donations to join in the festivities!

5) Get competitive

Whether it’s Christmas tree decorating, the craziest Christmas jumpers or the most festive poetry, pick your competition theme, source a prize and charge a donation per entry.

6) Celebrate and donate

Why not ask for donations instead of gifts this year? You could also donate instead of sending Christmas cards, holding a Secret Santa or going on a Christmas night out!

7) Last hour's Pay

Before you clock off for the Christmas break, donate your last hour’s pay to GOSH Charity. Invite friends, family and colleagues to join you and do the same!

8) Christmas dares

Accept socially distanced Christmas dares in return for donations. Why not try eating 10 mince pies in one sitting or learning how to say Merry Christmas in 20 languages?

9) Get crafty

Whether it’s sparkly baubles, knitted scarves or homemade confectionery, save someone the job of choosing a present this year by Christmas crafting in return for donations.

10) Guess the name of the GOSH elf

Get in touch for your free sweepstake poster! £2 per entry and the chance to win half the prize money (with the rest coming to GOSH Charity of course!).

11) Bake it better

From mince pies to chocolate logs, gingerbread biscuits to panettone, hold a bake sale, coffee morning or afternoon tea. We have all the materials you need to get started!

12) Register to run off Christmas

Get 2021 off to a running start and feel fantastic! Register for Running Off Christmas and run 31 miles your way in January.
