What will be happening during #UKCharityWeek?

T

HROUGHOUT #UKCharityWeek 2019 there will be many charity awareness and fundraising events taking place up, and down the country, we have taken the opportunity to compile a brief list of the official daily themes for #UKCharityWeek 2019.

We invite all of our partner charities, sponsors and Corporate Friends to get involved and raise plenty of money for their respective UK-registered causes while having some fun!

Keep up the great work all of you, and thank you for your continued support of the campaign!

Monday

The first day of the week will be a celebration of all things charity; this is your opportunity to shout about your causes vital work.

You can do this in whatever format you wish, be that holding an event at your premises, or just setting a series of social media posts to talk about your charity, volunteers and supporters throughout the day. Remember to use the correct hashtag! #UKCharityWeek

Tuesday

Following on from the opening day of celebrations, we turn our attention to our Give ‘£5 Day’. We use this very simple, but highly effective opportunity to encourage people to donate a minimum of £5 to their chosen Official Partner Charity.

Wednesday

Maybe you fancy yourself as the next Mary Berry? Or, are you the queen of the Victoria Sponge or the king of the Black Forest Gâteau? If so, it’s time to grease your cake tins and pull on your oven mitts, because the #UKCharityWeek Charity Big Bake is back!

Whether you’re an amateur or a seasoned show-stopper, you can have a great time hosting your own #UKCharityWeek Charity Big Bake to raise money for your Official Partner Charity.

Getting started could not be easier with our recipes and guidance at hand, so you can be sure to make your #UKCharityWeek Charity Big Bake event a great success!

Thursday

Could you bring together a few friends or colleagues to give a bit of time to a local charity? #UKCharityWeek as part of its efforts for International Volunteers Day will be encouraging people to volunteer throughout the day to help one of our Official Partner Charities.

Our Volunteers Day is also an excellent opportunity for volunteers, and volunteer organisations to raise awareness and understanding of the contribution they make to their communities.

Friday

The hugely popular #UKCharityWeek Christmas Jumper Day is back again this year on Friday 6th December 2019.

Ask your family, friends, school or colleagues to don their favourite festive knits and donate to your chosen #UKCharityWeek Official Partner Charity.

Then put all the photographs on social media throughout the day, and remember to use the hashtag #UKCharityWeek and our handle @UKCharityWeek.

The Christmas Jumper Days raise thousands of pounds up and down the country every year – let’s see what we can all achieve for 2019!

Saturday

This fundraising day we would like you to all come together and raise as much funds as possible for our Official Partner Charities across the UK who need your support.

At the conclusion of the day, we encourage our Official Partner Charities to use their ‘We’ve Raised Posters’ to show how much they have raised throughout the week.

Please share your pictures with the posters on your social media channels, and we’ll be sure to share them if you tag us in.

Sunday

On Sunday 8th December 2019 we will be looking at how teamwork is vital within your organisation. We will be encouraging everyone to share their stories and pictures of how teamwork has impacted within the workplace.
