Thinking of organising your own event to raise funds for us? We’ve put together our top three tips to inspire you to fundraising success!

Be prepared

You’ll need to read up on the practicalities (and laws) of holding an event – particularly if it includes a raffle – to make sure your's runs as smoothly as possible.

Brand it

We’ve got lots of branded materials such as posters, balloons and collection tins to help make your event stand out from the crowd! Let us know what you’re planning and request your fundraising items on 020 7343 4200 or email

Tell everyone

Put posters up in your local area, tell all your family and friends, and get in touch with local press. You could also tweet about your event or Facebook your friends (post it on our Facebook page too) and spread the word!
