Here's some of our top tips to help you raise as much sponsorship money as you can...
Set up an online fundraising page
If you’ve already set up an online fundraising page, fantastic! If not, visit Just Giving or set up a fundraiser through Facebook fundraising. Once it’s set up, you just need to share it as much as possible – post it on your social media pages and email it to friends, family and work colleagues.
Download a sponsorship form
For those who don’t want to donate online. Make sure you let all your friends and family know what event you’re doing and that you would like them to support you by donating on your sponsorship form.

Do a sweepstake
Why not do a sweepstake on the time you’ll complete your event in? Even if your event is not a timed event, it’s easy to time yourself with a phone or watch. Ask people to donate £1 (or more if they’re feeling generous!) to bet on your time and then the winner gets half of the proceeds.

Lots of companies now take part in Matched Giving where they will match the amount of fundraising an employee does for a charity (up to a pre-determined level), thereby doubling your total. Ask your employer about matched giving.
