Spending ten minutes online to publicise your event can make a huge difference. Use websites such as Facebook and Twitter to tell your friends about what you’re doing and why to encourage them to show their support. You could even add the event details to your email sign off.
Put posters around your local area, use word of mouth and perhaps you could get in touch with the local press. Make sure you give the media enough notice to cover the story (generally about two weeks prior to the event), and send them lots of details about what’s happening, who will be attending, why you are holding it, how much you hope to raise, when/where it is happening, and your contact details.
If you need advice on how to do this, just contact the Fundraising Team on 020 7470 9393 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also advertise your event on our website, just contact us on the number above.
Remember often the best way of promoting your event is talking to your colleagues, friends and family about why you are supporting the Brooke and what difference this will make. This may even encourage them to spread the word too!
