If you are considering fundraising on behalf of PC David Rathband's Blue Lamp Foundation then please take a look below at the list of eight easy steps that we think will help you be successful.
Decide what you are going to do:
There are many different ways to fundraise either individually or in groups of your friends. Don't overstretch yourself and remember to enjoy it, you will be much more successful if you do! If you are stuck for ideas look at our fundraising A-Z.
Setup your JustGiving fundraising page:
JustGiving is a tool that allows you to create your own donation page so that your sponsors can donate using their credit or debit cards online. It couldn't be easier and takes minutes to do. You also don't have to collect the money in person as they pay your sponsorship money directly to us.
Register for your event registration number:
Don't forget to register your event here on our website. Once the online form is received by us, it will be processed and you will be emailed an event registration number which will then allow you to publicise your event and start building interest. Go ahead and Register online now!
Get your Blue Lamp goodies:
Once you have registered you will be emailed a link to download a fundraising pack and you can choose from a variety of posters to advertise your fundraiser. To request official merchandise such as wristbands or collection tins, please send us an email.
There are many things to take into consideration when organising a fundraising event. We think it will be a good idea for you to complete the fundraising checklist and read the holding fundraisers page.
Tell us all about it:
We love hearing all of your stories from the events that you have held. You can email us the details and photographs - some of which will end up on here! We will notify you directly if your event is featured on our previous events or latest news pages. Tell us how it went!
Send us your money:
Check out the 'how to pay us your fundraising money’ form, which tells you all the information you need to pay us your money. It is really important that you read this as it will make things simpler for everyone, and will allow us to keep proper records.
Return your unsold merchandise and collection tins:
It's likely that once you have completed your event you will have left-over items. We would really appreciate it if you could send it back to us so it can be used at future events. This is the same for collection tins and buckets etc. More information can be found on the merchandise returns page.
