As the sound of jingle bells and smell of roasting chestnuts are already upon us we wanted to share with you some ideas of how you can continue to support Bloodwise over the festive season.

We hope some of these ideas inspire you and we would love to hear some of your own – please feel free to pop any suggestions in the comments box below.

Your Best Dressed Bloodwise Bear

We have lots of Bloodwise bears looking for a new home this Christmas so why not hold you own Best Dressed Bear Competition in your school, college, work place or community group. Each person buys a bear for £5 and must dress their bear in the best outfit they can make. Dig out some old material or raid your children’s toy box and get creative - the Best Dressed Bear wins!

Send an email to lfraser@bloodwise.org.uk to arrange for your Bloodwise bears to be sent out.

We would love to see your Best Dressed Bear pictures – Tweet us @Bloodwise_North or find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/bloodwise.north

Christmas at the Movies

Have you ever wanted to dress up like a character from your favourite Christmas Movie? Perhaps you want to don your PJs and scarf like the little boy from The Snowman? Become an Elf for the day? Or perhaps you are more suited to the Christmas Grinch? Forget dress down day….now it is time to hold your own Christmas Movie Character Day!  Hold it in your workplace or school, paying to go dressed as your favourite Christmas Movie Character with a prize for the most creative costume.

Jingle Bell Jam Jars

It’s that time of year where you need to clear out your fridge to make way for turkey and stuffing and that bottle of Irish Cream and I bet there are some condiments ready for the bin.  Only, don’t through away the jars. These can be used to make beautiful Christmas decorations and LED tea light candle holders.  Spend that wet and windy afternoon with family and friends decorating your jars and then sell these to raise funds for Bloodwise.

A Bloodwise Christmas

Here at Bloodwise we have a fantastic range of Christmas cards and gifts with 100% of profits going back to the charity.
