Top 10 Autumn and Winter fundraising ideas

Two carved pumkpins on a wooden table

As Summer becomes a distant memory and – dare we say it – Christmas is on its way so, here are our top fundraising ideas for Autumn and Winter:

  1. Hold a pumpkin carving competition in the office for Halloween – charge an entry fee and offer a prize to the winner
  2. Halloween-themed dress down day – grab your spookiest outfit and pay a fee…maybe you could charge extra for those not willing to dress up
  3. Organise a themed bake off, for Halloween or the festive season – charge an entry fee, select a panel of judges and offer a prize to the winner
  4. Take one of our Football Fundraiser scratchcards to your work/pub/club/group – someone will win £25!
  5. Christmas jumper day – pay a fee to go to work in your most festive jumper. The uglier, the better!
  6. Wrap presents – if you’re great at wrapping, offer your services to friends or colleagues for a donation per item wrapped!
  7. Blindfolded wrapping challenge – looking for an ice-breaker activity at your Christmas meal or party? Why not try to wrap a present while blindfolded! It’s a bit of fun, but raises awareness of the challenges of losing one of your senses.
  8. Christmas quiz or raffle at work or your local pub – organise a quiz or raffle in the office or at your local, charge for tickets and ask local companies for donations as prizes
  9. Donate instead of sending Christmas cards – be environmentally friendly and help a charity this festive season by sending an e-card/text/message and donating the money you would have spent on cards to us!
  10. Nominate Deafblind UK as your company’s next Charity of the Year for 2020
