Festive Fundraising -

The festive season is looking very different this year, with some of our events unable to go ahead as planned. But, that doesn’t mean we haven’t got plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in some festive FUNdrasing!

 

Santa Saturday, Saturday 5th December

Join Santa for a day of stories and crafts by purchasing one of our Santa Saturday Craft Bags. Craft bags are £12 each or 2 for £20 and they can be either collected from Santa’s elves on Saturday 5th December, or they can be delivered to you for free if you live within a 5-mile radius of QAC.

The craft bags will be full of lots of fun things including:

     - At least 5 different craft activities (incl. video and written instructions)
     - Festive colouring and activity sheets
     - A chocolate treat
     - A gift from Santa
     - USB containing 2 ‘Stories with Santa’

  

Virtual Christmas Market, Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th December

Virtual Christmas Market Banner

Our annual Christmas Fayre is always a popular event and one of the team's favourites, but this year we can’t host it in person so we are taking it virtual. Over the first weekend in December, we will be showcasing a number of ‘stalls’ featuring a range of quality gifts and festive treats.

Videos and links will be posted on our Facebook Page throughout the weekend, and we will also list all stallholders here on our website from the Monday.

Festive Quizzer Banner

With lockdown, wet days and dark nights upon us then why not get people together virtually and be a QAC Festive Quizzer.

For a £5 donation, you will get an email with over 20 quiz rounds, complete with answers, along with a Christmas Star certificate for your winners and Festive Turkey certificate for your losers.

All you need to do is choose your Quiz Master and get friends, family and colleagues together on whatever video calling platform you choose and get quizzing!

 

Christmas Playlist, NOW until Christmas!

Christmas Playlist Banner

Choose your favourite Christmas song and add it to our festive playlist! Perfect for getting people into the Christmas spirit – whether it’s wrapping presents, decorating putting up the tree or preparing those pesky sprouts for cooking the turkey dinner!

Visit our GivePenny page and donate a minimum of £1 per song and then add your song – it’s that simple. You don’t need a Spotify account to add a song to the playlist, but will need one to be able to listen to it - but the good news is it doesn’t have to be a paid subscription account, it can be free! 

  

Amazon Wishlist, NOW until always!

If you would like to support QAC this Christmas, but none of the above ideas take your fancy, then don’t forget we have an Amazon Wishlist with lots of items from different departments, that will really benefit our students.

Perhaps you and your team could pool your ‘Secret Santa’ or cards money to buy something off the list, or maybe you would just like to send us a little post present yourself. All gifts will be very much appreciated and put to great use.

 

There are lots of ways you can support us this Christmas and we really do appreciate it more than ever this year.  

If you have any questions about any of the above festive activities then please contact fundraising@qac.ac.uk or 0121 803 5487.
