We want to encourage everyone taking part in the firewalk to fundraise for a great cause. Here are some tips to get you started.
The first step would be contacting your chosen charity to ask their advice and see if they have collection tins etc.
Have you set up a Virgin Money Giving page?
Click here to create your free Virgin Money Giving page. Virgin Money Giving is 100% not for profit, so more money goes directly to your chosen charity. Plus as a fundraiser you get a chance to win £100 for your chosen charity!
Does your workplace match fund?
Certain employers will match employees fundraising up to a certain level. This means that for every pound you raise, your employer will match that amount to double your funds raised (up to their agreed limit). Ask your HR department about this!
Would your place of work allow you to host a cake sale or other fundraising activity?
Would they share your Virgin Money Giving link on the intranet, and would they allow you to place a sponsor form (get this from your chosen charity) on notice boards and or rest areas?
Would your local pubs host a quiz night or similar to boost your efforts?
