Top tips

Super-charge your sponsorship with our top four tips

1. Spread the word

Create a buzz around your epic fundraiser by telling friends and family well in advance. That way, they’ll have plenty of time to sponsor you, cheer you on and even be persuaded to join in. Once you’ve set up your fundraising page, share it proudly on your social networks, giving everyone a chance to support you!

2. Double your money

Many companies run matching schemes to support staff fundraising, so it’s worth checking in with any businesses you know or work with: it’s an easy way to boost your fundraising total.

3. It's not over yet...

Your big day will come and go, but that doesn’t mean it’s all over. Give your supporters a nudge when you’ve crossed your finish line with a few great snaps from the day. It’s a sure fire way to drum up some last minute support. Don’t forget to tag @BBCCiN, we’d love to send a like.

4. Thank and bank

If there’s one thing people don’t tire of hearing it’s “Thank you”. Those simple words remind supporters that they’ve been part of something special. Once you’ve collected your money, pay it in and close your fundraising page.
