Fundraising hints and tips
Your friends and family will probably sponsor you once you've set up your fundraising page, but to raise the maximum amount of money for our life-saving work, you could also think about organising a pub quiz, having a raffle or asking a local school to run a non-uniform day. The next step is to create your online page...
Social media can help you build a real buzz around your event. These channels work best when you make them personal. Be yourself and talk to your friends and followers as you would in person.
