Promoting your event

Once you've decided on the details of your fundraising event, it's time to drum up support! The more people you tell, the more successful your event will be.

  • Use our template posters to advertise your activity - around your workplace or school, in the local area etc - don't forget to ask permission first!
  • Tell people about your event using social media, like Facebook and Twitter. Post some information on your profile and get the word out to your friends and family and the people they know. If you have an online fundraising page, include the link! Let us know too. Find us on Facebook and Twitter, or tweet us using the hashtag #teamCCLG.
  • The local media are often looking for stories about people who are doing extraordinary things. The best way to get noticed is to write a press release and email it to the editor. Follow up with a phone call to make sure they have read it!
  • Word of mouth is one of the most effective kinds of promotion, so tell everyone in your neighbourhood, social club, gym or office what you're doing and why.

Next: maximising your fundraising!
