Top tips

  • Work in a team: Fundraising is more fun if you recruit your friends, family and colleagues to get involved.
  • Match funding: Many employers will match the amount you raise, so check if this is available to you.
  • Go public: get in touch with your local media to let them know what you're up – contact us for help with a press release.
  • Get off to a fast start: Encourage your most generous supporters to donate first, then others will follow suit.
  • Remind people what you're doing: Busy people won't always get around to donating.
  • Ensure maximum coverage: Add the link to your fundraising page to your email.
