Fundraising ideas

  • Festive quiz: A quiz is the perfect get together for colleagues, families, friends and community groups. Ask everyone to write a themed round.
  • Virtual Christmas Dinner: Can’t get together with friends this year? Host a virtual Christmas dinner. Make it extra special by asking guests to dress smart and incorporate games.
  • Auction: You need to make space for your Christmas gifts so why not sell off old items? Set up a Facebook fundraising page, invite friends, post pictures and get bidding.
  • Mince pie challenge: How many mince pies can you make in two hours? Get sponsored to take on the challenge and to raise even more, set up a sweepstake for people to guess the lucky number of pies.

Long-term supporter Anne has run the London Marathon for St Mungo’s and has cycled the 46-mile Ride London for us – twice! She’s also a regular Christmas fundraising volunteer.

“I've been supporting St Mungo's for many years. The sight of people living rough, which has become a more frequent experience in recent times, makes me feel sad and helpless.  However, I know that by supporting St Mungo's some of these folk will be helped to get back on their feet again". - Anne Unseld
