Top 10 festive activities from our Board Advisory Panel

The HotC team got into the festive spirit pretty early this year – we had tinsel around our screens by 30 November! It’s not always that easy to get your colleagues feeling festive though, so when our Board Advisory Panel got together this week we asked for their top 10 tips for workplace holiday activities:

  • Hold a Christmas Jumper Day or Get Your Sparkle On, taking donations from those who take part AND that don’t!
  • Hold a Christmas raffle, using the proceeds to support a local charity
  • Offer your staff the opportunity to donate their last hour’s pay
  • Assemble an office choir and collect donations
  • Work with your local youth group or school to host festive art activities for young people
  • Hold a professional clothing or coat drive and donate them
  • Encourage staff to engage in volunteering all year round (not just around the holidays when charities can get overwhelmed with volunteers!)
  • Organise a ‘giving tree’ and buy presents for charities to give to people they support
  • Host a group of care leavers for a Christmas lunch
  • Remind staff to wrap presents using recycled or reused materials
  • A bonus 11 – encourage your colleagues to purchase with purpose this year, using our social business guide!
