Top fundraising ideas for the home, school or office!

  1. Buy ERUK Christmas Cards
    With designs to suit all tastes have a look at what is on offer
  2. Buy Search or Sell online
    Shopping or simply browsing for gifts will help raise funds using easyfundraising or give as you live – see here for all the details!
  3. Carol Concert
    Everyone loves a sing along! With mulled wine and mince pies charge a small entry fee with proceeds donated to ERUK
  4. Christmas Fancy dress
    Whether a Christmas Jumper Day or you go to work dressed as a Christmas Pudding you can join in the fun!
  5. Sweepstake
    How long does it take to eat 3 mince pies? How heavy is the Christmas cake? How many sweets in the tin? Small charge per entry with a prize for the winner.
  6. Name the…
    Have obscure/close up pictures of Christmas themed items, or your colleagues baby photos and guess what/who they are!
  7. Cake & Decorations Sale
    Reindeer cupcakes, iced Christmas tree biscuits, snowball cakes or create home made decorations – how creative can you be?
  8. Unwanted Christmas Presents
    We all have old presents bought early and then forgotten, or duplicate gifts or things received that we just don’t want! Why not have a pre Christmas bring and buy sale at work or an ebay auction.
  9. Quiz
    Battle of the departments/classes/pupils v teachers – everyone loves a festive quiz!
  10. Donate
    Donate your final hours salary of the year to ERUK;  at work, (with permissions!) enter a draw to win a day off; Secret Santa – limit to £4 and donate the extra £1 instead.

These are just a few of the ways that you can help us increase the amount of research that we are able to fund.

If you’re not able to organise an event yourself why not just display our Christmas Greetings poster? People can add a festive message and donate £1 instead of sending cards to colleagues.

Do send in your Event Registration Form found in your fundraising pack which you can download here before you start fundraising, and read all of our safety and legal guidelines.

When you’ve finished your fundraising you can send in the monies raised using this form.
