DECEMBER = Festive Fridays
We all know that Friday's are the best day of a working week (because it means the weekend is practically here) and we all know that December and Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year (according to Andy Williams)...
...put them together and you have a great excuse to enjoy yourself wth KEMP's Festive Fridays!
All you have to do is have some fun at work (or at home) while fundraising for the Wyre Forest's hospice and let the festive cheer flow this year.
Whatever you do - tag us: #festivefriday
There are loads of fun things you could do. Here are a few ideas...
Christmas Jumper Day
People all around the Wyre Forest will be wearing their Christmas jumpers for KEMP this December. Choose your day to get festive (it doesn't have to be a Friday), set your donation amount and get everyone involved. including the boss!
Remember to take lots of pictures and send them to us or post to our social media pages. Hashtag them #KEMPFestiveFridays and we'll share them and pick the best.
Check out a few of the pictures from last year...
Bake & Cake Sale
Who can resist yummy homemade cakes on a Friday? Bake your favourite cakes and decorate them in a festive theme to sell all in aid of raising funds for KEMP this December.
Your workmates will love you (who doesn't love a slice of cake with elevenses or lunch at work?). Plus, everyone knows that calories don't count in the run-up to Christmas ;)
A hamper full of delights could be yours to win this Christmas. We have a number of luxury hampers we can give to your company to raffle off during December or that you can purchase as an extra special Christmas gift.
How you want to do the raffle is entirely up to you...you might be a pub that wants to raffle it off for your customers, or a shop that wants to entice your shoppers. It's entirely up to you.
Sparkle all the Way
Accessorize your uniform or day to day clothes with tinsel, glittery make up or sparkly hairspray. Make yourself the most festive person in the office OR challenge your colleagues to 'out-sparkle' one another.
Why not sponsor the men to wear as much glitter as possible! We would love to see as many sparkly beards this year as possible! Go on - get your glitter on, it's all for a good cause!
Practically everybody loves chocolate in the run-up to Christmas (it may even be a law that people have to have chocolate!). Why not ask everyone you work with to donate a bar of chocolate and then you can put together a chocolate hamper that you can then raffle off on the last day of work before Christmas.
Alternatively, hold a chocolate tombola where everyone gets the chance to win something and then donate all the money raised to KEMP this Christmas. Turn those chocolate coins into real coins and make a real differnce to people's lives here in the Wyre Forest.
We all know how annoying it can get when you have to write Chritmas cards for everyone you work with and invariably you'll miss someone out (and run the risk of them not speaking to you in the New Year!). So why not simply forget sending Christmas Cards this year! Do something more personal than an email and more worthwhile.
We will provide you with a large poster for everyone to write a Merry Christmas message that you can put up in the staff room (see below). Then donate what you would have spent on Christmas Cards to KEMP Hospice instead!
