Step 1: Decide on a fundraising event
From bake sales to bungee jumps and dress up days there are endless ways to raise funds for
You’ll find a full list of things you could do in our fundraising kit.
Step 2: Shout about it
To really make your event a success, it’s a good idea to advertise it to as many people as possible. So tell friends and family, advertise it at work, school or on local notice boards and of course, share in on social media like Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat.
You can also set up a page with Virgin Money Giving – it’s a great way to tell your story, share photos and provide your supporters with a link so they can donate online.
Step 3: On the day
With all the planning done, the only thing left is to enjoy the day!
Make sure to take plenty of photos and post them on social media – it may help bring in a few extra donations and our social media team might be able to help by sharing and retweeting them too.
Step 4. Donating the funds you raise
