Fundraising tips

Do it together – fundraising together is an easy way of raising more money, especially if you’re not feeling confident. It’s also is a great way of raising reaching more potential sponsors.

Raise money online – setting up a Just Giving page for your activity is the easiest way for friends, family and colleagues to support you. You can then share the page on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Add Gift aid - ask your sponsors to tick the Gift Aid box on your sponsorship form to boost their donation by 25p for every £1 raised.

Promote your activity – word of mouth is the most effective ways of promoting your fundraising event - so why not tell everyone at your office, pub, neighbourhood and gym about what you’re doing?
