Things to Make and Sell

  • Cards - Handmade cards are still very popular, especially at Christmas. Either a percentage of what you sell all year round, or cards made for a specific event with all the proceeds donated is a great way to raise funds for us. Attend an event, sell online, take round to local schools/workplaces/cafes etc.
  • Handmade Crafts - Anything that you can make & sell could be used as part or full fundraising for WAY, however please ensure that any items made adhere to Health & Safety regulations and hold any relevant certifications of safety required.
  • Retailers – If you, or someone you know, owns a business why not consider donating a percentage of sales from a certain item, or for a certain period of time, to WAY? Many people in the past have chosen an item that is slightly bereavement related, a range of stock that needs a sales boost, or takings from a certain day in the month/year and donated between 5% and 20% to us. Please email us on fundraising@widowedandyoung.org.uk if you would like to choose WAY as your nominated charity, and we can publicise this online and via social media too!
  • Second hand Goods – If you are having a clear out, you could save yourself a trip to the tip and raise some money for us at the same time! There are many ways you can turn your unwanted belongings in to money for us – some are listed below in the online section, but in terms of events why not go along to a Bring & Buy sale, hold your own yard sale, or pop along to a Car Boot sale and see how much you can make?
