We’ve put some key pointers below to help you plan and make your event as special as possible.

Plan in advance

  • Set a date. Check your calendar to avoid any clashes, such as an important sporting event and make sure you’ve given yourself enough time to organise everything.
  • Make a checklist at the beginning and use this as a guide to know exactly what needs to be done and when.
  • Set yourself a target of how much you’d like to raise.

Publicise it

Spread the word about your event as much as possible using:

  • Social media – create an event on Facebook or tweet your followers
  • Posters – pin up posters, order some today
  • Download -  branded bunting and flag decorations
  • Local press – we can send you a template press release for your local paper
