  4. Set up a JustGiving page – It only takes a few minutes to set up a Just Giving page and it’s quick and easy to share with friends directly and on social media. The money donated will come directly to us, so you don’t have to worry about sending it to us either!
  5. Spread the word – Tell all your friends, family and colleagues about your fundraising to help you reach your target. Check out our Fundraising materials, where you can find a template press release and posters.
  6. Have fun – Enjoy your fundraising; spending time with your friends, family and colleagues and feel good about all your hard work.
