Q1: What have you been doing to fundraise?
At first we (the guys from Tamworth - Jeremy, Simon, Ryan and myself) started off individually asking friends and family to donate to our individual pages and that was receiving limited response so we put our heads together and wanted to do something much larger that could help all of our fundraising and perhaps get more money as a total, than just as four individuals, so we decided on putting on a golf day, where we could get bigger donations per person as well as money from the days takings and bar on the day as well as running a raffle sales in the lead up.

  • Q2: Which event or approach have you found the best?
    Certainly to date our biggest individual fundraiser is probably our golf day and raffle, we sold almost $1500 in raffle tickets, but this was only possible through awesome sales and also because we sourced some great prize donations from local business who were all keep to help out our cause. For example, Tamworth Telstra Store donated a brand new galaxy 3 mobhile phone worth $900, The Good Guys Tamworth donated a video camera worth $450 as well as many other prizes, gift and money donations for sponsoring each hole on the course and for use as prizes for the day. We were also lucky enough to have most of the food donated for our BBQ run on the day so we had little expenses in running the day other than course fees to the Longyard Golf Club Tamworth.

    Q1: What have you been doing to fundraise?

    After emailing all my friends and family for support, I wrote a letter to the board of the company I work for, Time Out, and asked for their sponsoring. They kindly pledged £250 and the owner of Time Out topped this up with some more of his own money straight away! I also hosted two Afternoon Teas at my flat for which I made all the food – sandwiches, cakes, scones etc - and charged £10 per person, which is a bargain compared to all the London Tea Room! I am also trying to do weekly homemade cake sales in my office, which usually raises another £10 a week. And, I got given a giant 1,2 kg Chocolate Easter Egg that I put up for auction resulting in £40 going straight in to my fund!

    Q2: Which event or approach have you found the best?

    The most successful one was asking my employers to contribute. I enjoy the cake baking and tea parties but there is a lot of work and cost involved, so it’s a much slower process as far as money raising is concerned.

    Q1: What have you been doing to fundraise?

    I've started with designing a little personal leaflet with all the information about the bike ride - why I'm doing it, who for, what is my aim.. including the donation website where people can contribute on line. Then I've been distributing this leaflet among my work colleagues, friends, church members, driving instructor :) - simply everyone I know - doesn't matter for how long. I've been also using facebook for approaching people there, sending updates or information about upcoming events regarding the bike ride, for example when I was organizing a fund raising dinner about a month ago. With my friends' help we prepared 3-course French meal, and we kept everything in French style to keep the theme. I made a little presentation about the bike ride, suffering children, the charity I'm raising money for and at the end there was a bike quiz when the guests could test their knowledge about interesting bike facts.

    (While I was preparing it I've learned quite a lot about bike history myself ) :) Recently I was asked to design few wedding invitations or to take some portrait photos (as I play around little bit with designing and photography) :) so I used this opportunity and instead of taking some 'thank you' gifts or money I kindly asked for gifts for children I'm raising money for. At the moment I'm writing a little article to the local newspaper as well, so I hope there will be some people who will react to that.

    Q2: Which event or approach have you found the best?

    I found my little leaflet to be very useful in terms of reminding people about my fund raising activity. I explain everything to them and hand in a leaflet with all information so even if they forget the details they still have everything in a written form.
