If you’re looking for ways to celebrate the festivities with friends, families and colleagues, why not organise a ‘Quizmas’ party, games night or Christmas Jumper Day for Elf? Dust off your festive attire, get the nibbles out and host an afternoon or evening of fun.
Entertain all ages with activities such as a Christmas quiz, bingo or other party games. Set up a virtual gathering via Zoom, Facebook, Teams, Skype or Houseparty and create a fundraising page for donations.
Are active challenges more your thing? Don your festive finery and take on the Virtual Santa Run for Elf before Christmas.
Select your own distance and run around your neighbourhood, at a local park or at home on a treadmill. Visit www.justgiving.com/campaign/elfsantarunners2020 for information.
Alternatively, say jog on to January by joining Elf’s new year get fit campaign. Set your own target of miles and complete them at your convenience throughout January.
Run, trek, cycle, swim, row or even walk your dog to pick off miles toward your total.
Visit www.justgiving.com/campaign/jogonjanuary for more information. If you’re looking for a creative, hands-on approach to fundraising then donating from the sale of goods could be
Bake festive treats, make Christmas crafts or have a pre-Christmas clearout and make use of those unwanted items. Sell your items directly, auction, raffle or list them on an online sales
