Help us make a difference for our wounded, injured and sick.
It has never been easier to run your own fundraising event and help support those injured in the line of duty. Together we can make a real difference to their lives!
1). Decide what you would like to do!
Pick something fun you can do either on your own or with friends and family, don’t be too ambitious, you don’t need to fill the Albert Hall to make a valued contribution, above all enjoy it, you’ll definitely raise more money if you do!
Here are a few ideas:
◾Quiz and race nights
◾Raffles/Auctions of unwanted items
◾Car boot sales
◾A sponsored ride out, walk, run, or swim.
◾Parachute jump or throw yourself down a zipline

Online & Local Adverts
If you’re holding an event, we’ll advertise it on our website and, if we know when and where it’s taking place, we can alert the local media!
3). Advertise and promote your fundraiser!
There are many different ways to advertise and promote your fundraising event, we can setup an online fundraising page for you via gofundme, its one of the easiest ways to ask and collect moneys from your sponsors. Don’t forget to keep your promotion up till your fundraiser happens, you could create and send an email marketing campaign once a month to help gain support.
Everydayhero is a place where you can create an online fundraising webpage, it allows friends, family and colleagues to sponsor and make donations to your fundraiser.
Ask more people by email. Online fundraising lets you email people to show them what you are doing and why, and them ask for donations. In our experience 30% of people you email WILL donate, so the more emails you send, the more money you will raise to make a difference!
Other Ways to Promote
Think of other appropriate ways you can promote your fundraising event, an advert in the local shop, golf club or gym.
Don’t forget to post it on facebook and Twitter if you use them.
