What a Welly good idea

What welly themed fundraisers can you dream up?

Now more than ever, Yorkshire needs you to grab your boots, raise vital money and help save lives. We know people in Yorkshire are a creative bunch, so why not come up with your own fun ways to raise money with wellies on Yorkshire Day.

We’ve put together a fundraising pack full of welly good ideas to get you started, which you can download here, before setting up your fundraising page.

All it takes is a little imagination – and a pair of wellies!

Paint Them

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

Bake Them

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

Plant Them

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.

Take a walk on the welly side

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.
