Scotland’s Armed Forces Children’s Charity

A few months ago, we came up with a fun, new fundraising idea that would involve shedding our comfy work-from-home attire in favour of something more glamourous – the Dress Up Not Down fundraising campaign! The idea was to get your friends and family together on Zoom wearing their best clothes to change things up a bit since we have all been wearing our ‘comfies’ since March.

With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve come up with with a festive twist to this fundraising idea; get your friends and family together over Zoom and wear your best Christmas getups including your Christmas jumpers and sparkly accessories! Hold a contest for the best (or ugliest!) jumper, plan a viewing party of a classic Christmas film together, bake some delicious festive treats such as gingerbread biscuits, or plan some fun, virtual Christmas party games and activities for everyone to get involved with.

Charge each person a small donation fee to take part (£5 or more) which will go directly towards supporting Armed Forces Children and Young People to reach their full potential and THRIVE this Christmas period.

If you like the sound of this fun and festive fundraising idea and would like to take part and fundraise for us, then please contact fundraising@rcet.org.uk and we can help you get started.
