Some tips to get your fundraising off to a good start...
Personalise your page

It’s always inspiring to see the people behind a fundraising campaign, so include a photo. Your message to your sponsors can be very powerful. Let them know what you want to achieve and why you have chosen this cause.

Get others involved

Fundraising with others can be great fun! Grab your friends, family and neighbours to join you - the more the merrier!

Spread the word

Harness the power of social media. Post, share, tweet and capture your fundraising event. Pick up supporters along the way and maximise your donations from the broader community to make your efforts really count!

Have fun

We hope you have fun, we hope you achieve your targets. We know you’ll make a difference. We know you’ll inspire others. We know you and all your supporters will be immensely proud of your achievements. Good luck.
