3  Use social media

Share your story on social media – people love to hear good news stories and it’s a great way to spread the word about taking part in a fundraising challenge. It’s also worth sending out an email to your contacts too, just to make sure you don’t miss anyone out..

4  Tell your story

Let people know why you are fundraising, who you are fundraising for and why it’s important to you. Informing people of where the money raised will go will make them more likely to donate.

5  Get support from your workplace

This might include sharing your story in weekly newsletters, on a staff notice board or in your email signature. Your workplace may even want to match your fundraising total – which is a great way of doubling your income quickly.

6  Hold a charity event

Get creative! Why not hold a charity event to raise extra funds?  Organise a dress down day, bake sale or a pub quiz, get everyone involved!

7  Keep people updated

Keep your friends and family, and AMMF, updated on how your fundraising and training are going in the lead up to your challenge, and how far off your fundraising target you are. Once you have completed your challenge – don’t forget to let everyone know how it went. There’s always time for some last-minute donations!
