Whether you’re planning to take on a physical challenge, organise a non-uniform day at work or host the mother of all bake sales, the money you raise will make a huge difference to people suffering health-related financial hardship.
Here are some tips to get you started once you’ve decided on your event or challenge:
Set up a fundraising page online. This is easy to do on the Justgiving website and they even coordinate the collection of Gift Aid.
Tell all your friends, family and colleagues about it and don’t forget us too! Spread the news on social media and don't forget to use the hashtag #TeamBenenden
Most people will give to charity but only when asked. So don’t be afraid to ask people to sponsor you and explain what you are raising money for! We will happily send you some leaflets to hand out.
If you’d like to have a paper sponsorship form, you can download one here.
