Hold an event
We rely heavily on the support of our local community to ensure that we can raise the £10,000 needed each day to keep our doors open. We welcome anyone who would be keen to hold an event in aid of the Hospice to contact us for support and any resources we can offer.
There are three simple steps to holding a successful event:
1. Tell us about your event!
Contact us on 01252 729446 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us about your ideas and any plans you have made. We would love to hear from you so we can advise and support you as much as possible. We can easily equip you with lots of helpful things like banners and posters and also add your event to our events diary on our website and to the paper copies we distribute. We can also enable you to use our logo and charity number on your event materials.
2. Make thorough plans…
As our Fundraising Team know, planning your event well is very important. Try to choose a date that gives you enough time to get things organised, and think carefully about the following things:
- Costs involved
- Licenses and laws you need to consider
- Setting yourself a fundraising target
- Who do you need to help you?
3. Maximising your fundraising!
Think about all the ways you can maximise the fundraising potential of your event, including:
- Online giving
- Selling refreshments/food
- Entrance fee
- Gift Aid
- Matched giving by your place of work
We want to help make your fundraising experience both enjoyable and rewarding so please remember to use the expertise and support of the Fundraising Team at the Hospice whenever you need them. You can find some additional information and guidelines in the Fundraising tools section of the website.
