Winter Wellness Challenges!

Fun fundraising ideas in a socially-distancing world this Christmas!

COVID-19 has severely impacted the way we fundraise here at Barretstown. With so many of our regular events postponed or cancelled, we're having to rethink how we do things... and we're asking for your help!

Now is the time to get creative, pull together and start your own fundraising challenge/event THIS CHRISTMAS and help us to continue to provide our life-changing services to families in need. Would you host a virtual family quiz night, a Christmas Jumper day in work; a silly socks day in school; taking the Christmas Carol Challenge….there are loads of great options for you to safely fundraise for Barretstown! Host an outdoor challenge or divide larger groups into smaller teams competing? Take on a 10,000 steps-a-day walking or running challenge? Host a virtual games night or start an online coffee-morning with friends or colleagues; run around your local area and compete against your colleagues or take to the airways and Busk for Barretstown. There are so many ways you can raise vital funds in a socially distancing world.

Below are just some examples to get you started.

So….what’s it going to be?

Choose a day and get everyone in your class,
team, club or company
to pay a donation amount to wear their finest and funniest Christmas attire for the day!

Bring some cheer to the team!

Be part of the Barretstown magic.
