Shout about your fundraising
The more people who know about your fundraising the better. Here are some tips to help you get the word out.
Use your network
Your friends and family are a great network so ask them to spread the word.
You could also think about all the networks you’re involved in, like sports teams, church, work, school and local community groups.
If everyone you know can get 1 or 2 people to support you, that can be a big boost without much effort from you.

Put up posters
You can create your own posters using our online tool, or ask us and we’ll send you some blank ones. Put them up at work, in local shops, cafes and community spaces.
Get in touch with your local paper
Local newspapers and radio stations love stories with a personal touch.
Download our press release template, add something about why you’re fundraising for us, and send it to all the local media sources as you can think of.
You could also send some photos to your local paper after the big day – you might become a local hero!
