Host a Christmas or End of Year party

Christmas baby

December can be a dark and cold month so give your friends and family something to look forward to.

Help support babies born premature or sick by organising a fundraising party. Check out our guide for holding a holding a ball or party, or if you're holding a virtual party, we have tips for organising your own virtual event.

However you plan to celebrate, below are some simple ideas to turn your event into a fabulously festive fundraiser.

Festive games

Games are a great way to get the party started! Play some games, make them festive themed and have fun! Ask your friends to donate a small fee to play, and think about a prize for the winner. Some ideas include:

  • Christmas Charades
  • Festive Bingo
  • The Fishbowl game ( you could use festive films, food, whatever you like)

Raffle

Hold a raffle and feature festive prizes – Christmas socks, a novelty tie, a packet of baubles. Email events@bliss.org.uk if you would like a letter of verification to help your source some great prizes. Alternatively, make your own prizes if you are feeling creative!

Quiz

Host a quiz at the party and ask for a small donation as an entry fee. Include festive questions such as :

  • Name all of Santa’s reindeer
  • Who played Elf in the film of the same name?
  • Who organised the original recording of the classic Christmas hit ‘Do they know it’s Christmas?'?

You could have a 'Bliss' round. Just email events@bliss.org.uk and ask us for some Bliss themed questions. We'll be happy to support your festive fundraiser.

Online Fundraising page

If you don’t want to have organised activities, simply set up a Just Giving page. Ask your friends to donate to your page if they would like to join the party.
