Christmas number 1 sweepstake

Do you want to support The Christie this Christmas? Take on The Christie Challenge and help us keep make sure we can be there for people with cancer.

If you're running a Christmas number 1 sweepstake as part of The Christie Challenge or as a standalone fundraising activity, please create a JustGiving page in support of The Christie using the button below.

Feeling lucky this Christmas? Get your friends, family members or colleagues involved and ask them to take part in a sweepstake for Christmas number 1, while fundraising to support people affected by cancer.

To start, you’ll need to create a list of the songs that are in the running for the Christmas number 1 spot. You can usually do this a week or 2 before Christmas, when the big Christmas players have all released their new hits.

Draw up a grid and write one of the songs in each box. You can always add in a few ‘dark horse’ songs as well, in case there turns out to be another Christmas number 1 shock win on the cards.

Then, you’ll just need to get everyone who’s entering your Christmas number 1 sweepstake to select one from random. Ask for a donation to The Christie charity to enter.

Decide what the winner gets – you could give them a percentage of the entry costs and then donate the rest to The Christie charity. Or you might be able get someone to donate a prize to give away, then all of the entry costs can go to charity.

If you’re holding a Christmas number one sweepstake in support of The Christie charity, get in touch and request a fundraising pack from us. We can provide some Christie charity-branded materials for your party and a sponsor form to collect your money.
