OrganiseYour own event

Top tips for organising your own event

Have you ever thought of organising your own fundraising event? Take a look at our tips below.

  1. Have fun – and choose a fundraising event that you will enjoy. If you’re having a good time people are more likely to join in.
  2. Keep it simple – The best fundraising projects are the simplest. Be realistic and cost out your event carefully. Keep a checklist so you know what needs to be done along the way.
  3. Keep it legal – Keep in contact with us to ensure everything you are doing is legal.
  4. Do your sums – Make sure you keep an accurate report of all financial transactions you make for your event. If possible use a separate bank account to cash money and please don’t send cash in the post.
  5. Why are you helping us? – If you have a personal reason for supporting the Therapy Centre share it with potential supporters and share it across social media to generate  interest.
  6. Choose your date carefully – Be aware of major sporting events, other local events and school holidays and work around them.
  7. Tell us about it – We’d love to hear what you’re planning and can jazz up your event with posters, balloons and materials to help make it even more of a success.
  8. Tell others about it – Tell your friends, family and work colleagues about what you’re up to and let your local paper and radio station know.
  9. Thank everyone – Let people know how grateful we are for their support and when you know how much you have raised, tell them so they know what a valuable contribution they have made.
