Top tips for successful fundraising
1. Pick something fun to do
The sky is the limit, but if you’re feeling stuck, go for something you know - baking and crafting are always fun, or you could look into putting on an event at your school or work
2. Set a date, time, and a target
Date and time are up to you - just make sure people are going to be around to support you! Setting yourself a target of how much you want to raise will give you that extra bit of incentive to really go for it!
3. Choose a venue
Think about what you’ve chosen to do and pick the best place to do it.
4. Tell everyone you know
This is really important - advertise your event using the posters in this pack, tell your local paper and radio station, and use social media to spread the word - remember to tag us in your posts and we’ll share them with everyone we know too!
5. Get people involved
You don’t have to do this alone - Think about everyone you know and ways they can help. Get your friends, local businesses, and community groups involved.
6. Stay safe
Little things like making sure you have a first aid kit, know where the fire escapes are, and know who to ask for help are all important - make sure you know this before your event
7. Keep in touch
Remember we’re here for you every step of the way - if you need more marketing materials, advice or would just like a chat about your fundraising idea get in touch - we’re all in this together!
8. Enjoy yourself!
