Promoting your event

There's a lot to consider when you're planning an event: the financial, legal and health and safety aspects all need some thought – but don't worry, we have lots of information to help you on our planning a fundraising event page.

Remember to spread the word

A great way to boost your fundraising is to get some publicity on a local radio station or through your local paper. We have put together a press release template to help you do this.

If you use Facebook, Twitter or any other social media, promote your fundraising there and ask friends and family to share it onward.

If you don't have a social media account depending on how many of your friends and family are online you may want to set one up, it takes five minutes and can really boost donations.

Use photographs and videos to tell your fundraising story, show people how much effort you are putting into your fundraising and remind them to sponsor you.

Add a link to our website so anyone wanting to know more can find out and to help find out how their sponsorship of you will make an impact.If you don't have a social media account depending on how many of your friends and family are online you may want to set one up, it takes five minutes.
