Fundraise or host a Christingle

Fundraising at your Christingle celebration has never been easier. Every pound you collect helps young people build a brighter future.

Collecting donations

We ask those holding a Christingle celebration to arrange a collection in support of our work - helping children and young people most in need.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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' at:

    The Children's Society
    Whitecross Studios
    50 Banner Street
    EC1Y 8ST


    Please remember your include unique supporter ID (if known), your full name and address, the name of the organisation you represent and mention that the funds raised were in support of your Christingle service to ensure that your donations are received and banked correctly. You should never send us cash in the post.

  3. 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.
  4. Pay in donations at the bank
    You can pay your collections directly into our account at your local 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.
