Decide on an event or challenge

Your event can be anything you like, from holding a cake sale, coffee morning or dinner party, to organising a clothes swap, raffle or a dress down day in work.  If you want to get your fundraising hat on but need more inspiration, please click here

Alternatively you could get sponsored to do something daring such as a head shave or skydive, or embark on a challenge such as a runwalk or bike ride, or an overseas challenge for the ultimate experience of a lifetime.

Aim high and shout about it!

Aim High

Set yourself a fundraising target, as this gives you something to work towards and can encourage your supporters to be a little more generous. Think about who will be able to take part in the event or sponsor you and make sure you are realistic when setting the target. If you can try and raise at least three times as much as you plan to spend.  



Plan your own event

Shout about it

Once you have set the date, tell everyone you possibly can about your fundraiser and increase your event's profile. Your personal reasons will really help motivate your supporters. Put posters around your local area, use word of mouth and social media. Perhaps you could get in touch with the local press?  

Remember we would love to hear about your event. Get in touch with our Fundraising Team
