Festive fundraising for Wooden Spoon!

Here are a few festive fundraising ideas for you to get involved with and help make a real difference to vulnerable children and young people.

Organise a Christmas Jumper day

Set a date for a Christmas jumper day at work and ask everyone to make a small donation to take part. You could also hold a competition for the best… or worst jumper!

Host a Christmas Bake Off

Get friends, family or colleagues to bake their favourite festive treats and crown the winner! You can then sell the tasty bakes at work, school or your sports club, to help raise much needed funds for vulnerable children this Christmas.
