Unwanted Christmas present Drop

Instead of gathering cobwebs at the back of your cupboard, your unwanted Christmas presents could make brilliant SNAPS raffle prizes throughout the year. Bring presents you don’t want to any January SNAPS session or contact helen@snapsyorkshire.org to arrange collection


Give it up – What’s your vice?

If you’re looking to make some positive lifestyle changes in 2018 after the excesses of the festive season, you could make even more of a difference by getting sponsored to do it throughout January! You could give up chocolate, nicotine, alcohol, TV, driving to work, social media, sugar, nail biting… the list goes on! Set up a virginmoneygiving page today and contact helen@snapsyorkshire.org to tell her about your challenge.

Christmas Fundraising

Nominate SNAPS to benefit from your Christmas Jumper Day fundraising at work. You could boost funds by holding a raffle too and all manner of Christmas fun-fundraising!

Save the trees this Christmas and donate what you’d spend on cards and stamps to SNAPS. Use Don’t Send Me A Card to spread your festive cheer this year.

It’s a big ask, but could you forgo one Christmas present this year and make a donation instead to SNAPS?
