10 tips for 10 miles, to help boost your fundraising

 

  1. Coffee Morning Get those Nan’s baking, those Mum’s cooking and take cakes to work. Pick up your colleagues Monday blues with a cupcake!
  2. Lunch Money Ask your colleagues to bring sandwiches in for lunch instead of buying one and ask them to donate the money they save to you!
  3. Ebay List your good quality unwanted items on the auction site, adding the profits to your fundraising!
  4. Ironing Everyone hates ironing, so this one will make you popular with your friends and family. Charge a fee and watch the sponsorship steam roll its way in. If you’re feeling cheeky enough, ask your partner to iron whilst your training!
  5. Dress Down Day! If you work in an office, colleagues might be keen for an opportunity to dress down for a small fee to help support your fundraising!
  6. Hand out IOU’s for cash! Offer your services once you have finished your training, perhaps looking after a friends dog for the weekend or helping a family member to move house!
  7. Remember that around 20% of donations come in after the event, so remember to email out your JustGiving page & ask for sponsorship after the event. Add photos & gruelling details on how hard it was to your JustGiving page & email.
  8. Fundraise at Work Use emails, pigeonholes, put posters on notice boards and add your JustGiving page to your email signature. Ask your company if they will match fund what you raise or put your JustGiving Page on their website and intranet.
  9. Collect your sponsorship straight away— people may forget they owe you money and it saves you time having to collect your sponsorship from all your sponsors after the challenge
  10. Ask your friends to select your fancy dress outfit for the stroll, the more extravagant their ideas the more they should pay!
