Raising donations in the Christmas Dome Challenge

We spent the beginning of this week spreading some festive cheer on the streets of Edinburgh in the easyfundraising Christmas Dome Challenge.

We invited 20 teams to take part in the challenge to raise donations for their charities and good causes.  Taking inspiration from the iconic 90s TV game show, The Crystal Maze, our teams had to collect as many gold tickets as they could in one minute.  For every gold ticket collected, we donated £1 to the good cause the teams were representing. And in true Crystal Maze fashion, we deducted £1 for every silver ticket collected!

In total over £3,900 was collected in the Christmas Dome for 19 charities and good causes, with the Scottish Wildlife Trust topping the league table by raising a huge £411 in just 60 seconds!

Other good causes benefited included MS Society, Woodland Trust, Alzheimer’s Scotland and the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Christmas Dome Challenge, we really enjoyed showing people that fundraising can be really easy and fun!
