Challenge yourself

Give something up and ask friends and family to sponsor you - it could be a habit, or even a favourite food.

Have a declutter

Now's the perfect time to declutter and sell any old clothes, unwanted gifts or books online – try eBay for charity, Facebook Marketplace or Depop.

Host a quiz

Dust off your aprons to challenge your friends to a bake-off competition. Ask people to donate to enter, then share your baked goods together or over video.

Coffee mornings

Catch up over a cuppa and host a coffee morning with friends and family – settle in with a drink, a slice of cake and enjoy some games.

Get crafty

Make homemade gifts, soap or cards for your loved ones. Send to your friends and family in the post and ask for a donation.

Teach a class

A group or online class, like yoga, home workouts or guitar lessons, or home schooling - are great ways to help people learn new things.

Get playing
