fundraise at Christingle
We ask those holding a Christingle celebration to arrange a collection in support of our work - helping children and young people most in need. Whether you're planning an online service or holding an in-person celebration, there are lots of easy ways you can collect donations at your event.
Fundraising at a Christingle
We’ve made fundraising at your Christingle celebration as easy as possible. The safest and easiest way for you to take in collections during your service is through your very own online donation page, and you can create one by registering your Christingle event with us.
You may also want to take in physical donations and then pay into us later. If you'd like to do this, why not order our collection candles or collection envelopes to hand out to your church, school or group.
Register your Christingle
Please fill in your event details below to register your Christingle with us. Once your page is approved, we'll send you an email with your unique event page URL that you can share with your Christingle guests to collect donations easily and safely.
If you wish to do so, we'll also promote your Christingle on our website, so Christinglers nearby can find and join your service.
How to pay in your donations
Every donation, large or small, makes a difference to a young person’s life and we are thankful to each and every Christingler for this. There are four easy ways to pay in the donations raised.
Pay in donations online
Simply pay the funds into your own bank account and then transfer the funds online. Don’t forget to tell us whether you're paying in on behalf of an organisation or for yourself. You'll receive an email confirmation to thank you for your donation.
Send us a cheque
You can pay in collections raised into your own bank account and then send us a cheque for the total in the post. Cheques should be made payable to 'The Children's Society' and should be sent along with a Christingle paying‑in form to:
The Children's Society
50 Banner Street
Please remember that you should never send us cash in the post.
- BACS payments
To ensure that we can accurately tie your BACS payment to your records, please ensure that you include your full name and Supporter number (if known). This can be found on your most recent communication from us or alternatively you can call our Supporter Care team on 0300 303 7000.
Pay in donations at the bank
You can pay your collections directly into our account at your local Barclays bank or Post Office. To do this, you’ll need to order a Christingle paying‑in form and take this along with your donations when paying in. You can pay in at another bank but you may have to pay a nominal fee to do this and we may not be able to acknowledge your donation.
