Make the most of Christmas cheer this year by raising funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Haven. Here are our top festive fundraising tips to inspire you, your family and friends to help us change women's lives across Yorkshire.

Christmas Jumpers or Bobble Hats Day

Choose a date to don your festive knits or bobble hats and raise money for Breast Cancer Haven. Just choose a date and donate at least £1 to wear your jolliest jumper or get sponsored to wear something super silly. Anyone can take part including workplaces, community groups and schools - don't forget to share your photos!

Mince Pie Mingle

Gather friends or colleagues and enjoy a mince pie or two! You could ask your guests to make a donation to attend or for every mince pie they munch. Why not make your fundraising efforts go a little further and add some other festive treats?


Gift Wrapping

Wrap your friends’ gifts for a fee. You could also ask your local shopping centre, market, or workplace if you could set up a stall: don't forget lots and lots of tape! You could add an extra charge for ribbons and bows.

Seasons Greetings

Instead of sending lots of Christmas cards, create your own poster or contact us for our Breast Cancer Haven, Yorkshire e-card. You can make a donation for the amount you'd usually spend (great for the environment too!).


Stars for Stars

Sponsor a decoration on our Christmas tree with a donation. You could dedicate your star to someone special or provide a message to go on our tree.

The gift that keeps giving

Struggling to find the perfect gift for the person who has everything? Why not make a donation to Breast Cancer Haven on their behalf instead? We can send a personalised certificate for you to gift on Christmas Day and make sure that special someone knows what a difference their gift has made. 

Hopefully our tips have inspired you, or maybe you have an idea of your own! Whatever the case, we'd love to hear from you. Be sure to download your very own Christmas Fundraising Pack for plenty more ideas and helpful materials, too.
