Thank you so much for supporting The Crossing Point.
Fundraising can be fun so we’ve come up with a few ideas to help inspire you.
Clear out your wardrobe and have a clothes-swap
Instead of dining out with your friends – cook a meal and invite them round – charge for what’s on your menu
Organise a get fit fun day – with various ‘sporting’ activities with a difference!
Arrange a sponsored fancy dress walk or cycle ride
Have a car wash day
Hold an open mic night – pay your friends and colleagues to perform .. or not!
Pub quiz nights are always popular – throw in a raffle to brighten up proceedings
Make sure you let everyone know about your event! You can create your own posters to advertise what you’re doing and why. Design your own sponsor forms if you’re feeling creative. Your work place might want to contribute with some office supplies!
Mention your fundraising event on your answerphone message, in emails, on your notice board at work …. anywhere you can!
Set a fundraising target, tell people what it is and what their contribution will help achieve.
Make sure your fundraising page is compelling – let your passion and motivation shine through.
Time your event – when payday comes around people are more inclined to give.
Get your friends and family to spread the word – they should be keen to support you.
Ask your employers to match your final total if you’re bold enough – be bold!
Don’t forget to take care in whatever activity you organise.
After the event always thank everyone involved for their support – in whatever way that’s happened.
Let everyone know the total raised and the impact their contribution has made.
