Here are some tips to fundraising:
- Create an online fundraising page; great websites for this are Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving, they’re easy and convenient.
- Utilise your social media; this is a great method to self-promote and let everyone know what you’re up to, also don’t forget those hashtags; they’re a great way to reach a wider audience.
- Hold a charity event; treasure hunts, quiz nights, bingo, bake sale, football games etc. Play to you strengths to organise an event to get people excited and involved!
