Get arty with your wellies and add a splash of colour, then put them on display and ask for donations. You could even try and fill them with coins. And don't forget to share with us using #GiveItSomeWelly
Give your oven some welly and rustle up some boot shaped biscuits and buns for a socially distanced bake sale, or plan a virtual bake off competition for friends and colleagues. Make sure you #GiveItSomeWelly on social media
Get creative with an old pair of wellies - they make great plant pots (just make sure you put in some holes for drainage). Fill your wellies with plants and flowers to show your support. You could even sell your floral arrangements.
Welly boots were made for walking. So this Yorkshire Day why not put yours on and head out into the glorious Yorkshire countryside for a good old ramble! You could ask friends and relatives to sponsor you for a welly good cause.
