Individual fundraisers organise and participate in all sorts of events and activities from coffee mornings and craft stalls to overseas treks and parachute jumps.
It doesn't need to be expensive orcomplicated - many of our fundraisers hold small events at school or at work such as dressing differently for a day, car washing or auctioning off the boss. Some supporters have beautiful gardens which they open to the public whilst others organise sponsored walks.
Organising an event should be fun and relatively hassle-free, but there are a few points to remember which will help things go more smoothly.
• Some research and find out how much interest there might be in your event before organising it.
• Ask family, friends and colleagues if they would be prepared to join in your event or sponsor you.
• Book the date and venue well in advance.
• Use people's skills and experience.
• Start small and make it a bigger event next year.
• Publicise your event using posters, leaflets, the internet, local press and word-of-mouth.
• Tell people afterwards how much money you raised.
Remember, St Barnabas is grateful for any support you are able to give - thank you for thinking of us.
