Organise your own event

Bring your idea, vision or dream to life by fundraising your own way

Organising your event takes some time and commitment. But here are some simple steps to help you through the process.

Step 1: Choose the right activity

If you haven’t decided on the right activity for you, take a look at our ideas for help and inspiration.

Step 2: Get planning

Decide where your event can take place and what you’ll need to organise it. Think about getting help from friends, family, colleagues and local businesses. There are some safety and legal issues you’ll need to bear in mind.

Step 3: Promote your event

Make sure you promote your event in plenty of time so you can raise as much money as possible. You can do this by posting it on your Facebook and Twitter accounts, try and get your event on local website listings and put up posters or give out flyers in the local area. You might also want to start getting donations through an online fundraising page at this point.

Step 4: Send in your money

Thank you and congratulations for putting on a great event! Don’t forget to thank everyone who took part. Now all that’s left to do is send in the money you raised.
