Easy Festive Fundraisers

Get your Christmas jingle on this year, choose a Christmas-themed quiz, jumper day, or sweepstake. Or you may have your own creative Christmassy idea!

Every pound you raise will ensure that those affected by an eating disorder receive support 365 days a year, including Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day.

Here are some of our ideas:

A Christmas quiz is perfect for school, university or work to get you in the festive spirit. For a small entry fee, you could host this during lunchtime with Christmas delights or find a venue elsewhere. Download our how-to guide and example rounds of questions to get you started.

Our snowflake sweepstake will help you boost your fundraising. Guess the number of snowflakes for just a £2 donation. The person with the closest guess wins a prize of your choosing. Once you have signed up to get your downloadable snowflake sweepstake, ask your team, family or friends to take part!

A Christmas jumper day at work is a fantastic way to bring some Christmas cheer to your workplace. Ask your colleagues to donate £2 to wear their favourite festive knitwear!

Carol singing in your community is an amazing way to spread the festive cheer and raise money for Beat’s Helpline services. You could do this at your local church, pub, or school, or do some door-to-door singing.

A gift-wrapping party at home with friends is a fun way to get festive while raising vital funds for Beat. You could charge a fiver per person and supply nibbles, drinks and wrapping materials!
