Help to raise vital funds for us this Christmas 

With Christmas almost upon us, here are some simple and fun ideas to raise funds to help us support vital research into skin disease and skin cancer this festive season.

By using Give as you Live thousands of famous high street stores will donate money to the BSF every time you shop online. Sign up takes a few seconds and you can even download a toolbar to show you which stores are part of the scheme.

Christmas Bake Sale

We all know Christmas is a time of year we are allowed to indulge, so it is the perfect time to tempt your friends and colleagues with your festive treats, for a price of course. For baking inspiration have a look at www.bbc.co.uk/food/collections/christmas_baking

E-cards

This year why not send friends, family and colleagues a free e-card. Not only is it environmentally friendly but the funds you save from buying and posting the cards, you can give to the BSF. Click here for an easy way to do this. 

Get Crafty

If you have a creative side then you could make beautiful unique gifts, cards and decorations none of which you could buy from any department store, making it an extra special gift.

Carol Singing

If you are somewhat of a song bird then why not host a carol concert. This could take place at your local church hall, shopping centre or train station. As with any event please remember to acquire permission first.

Christmas Dinner Party

Christmas is all about spending time with friends and family so invite them to dinner and ask for a small donation for the privilege. You can easily tell people and invite them to your party by using Dinner4Good www.dinner4good.com/BSF. Guests can also make their donation online so you can fully concentrate on being the perfect host.

Office Christmas Party

If your Christmas party usually lacks some sparkle then why not make things more interesting by incorporating some fundraising activities. Anything (appropriate) goes; quiz, raffle, wine tasting or even casino style games. Just ensure the boss knows and is happy for you to organise it.

Dress Down Day

Ask your boss if all colleagues would be allowed to ditch the suit for a day in order to raise vital funds for a good cause.

Ebay

If come the big day you find yourself with gifts that are the wrong size, colour or that are just ‘not you at all’ and you can’t take them back for fear of offence, don’t worry just pop them on eBay. To find out everything you know about selling in order to raise funds for BSF please Click Here

Why donate to us?

There are eight million people living with a skin disease in the UK. Some are manageable, others are severe enough to kill. We are here to help change that.

We raise money to fund research for cures for skin disease and skin cancer, but research doesn't fund itself.

We are the UK's only charity dedicated to skin research, and all of our donations and fundraising events are crucial to enabling us to continue our work.

We have supported almost 300 research projects and awarded nearly £10 million in funding across all skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis and many more.

Help us find a cure today.
