How to

1. Decide on What you are going to do

You really can do just about anything, there is a list below to give you some ideas.

2. Decide where and when…

Planning can take time, so the earlier you can start the better. Put your dates in the diary and if it requires friends or colleagues make sure they know well in advance.

Do you need a venue? If you do some venues might even be able to offer you a discount.

3. Create your own Fundraising Page

Click here to create it on JustGiving, select “Fundraise for us”. This will also give you lots of options to share with your friends. Any money raised automatically will include GiftAid.

4. Ask for help.

Do you need prizes; ask local businesses for example.

Do you need a hand with the organisation, ask friends – this can also be a big part of the fun!

Get in teach with us we might be able to help you spread the word via social media and send you some leaflets and poster to print at home.

5. Set a target

Decide how much you really wish to raise it can help a great deal in terms of keeping track of money coming in and what it might cost to do your fundraiser.

6. Spread the word

Once you have done all the preparations and know what, where and when – spread the word, let your friends, family, teammates, colleagues know.

Also, spread posters or use local intranets at work if you can. If it’s a big event then why not get in touch with the local newspaper or radio.

If you are online on Facebook or Twitter, use it – it is a great place to let people know what you are doing.
