There are so many ways to raise awareness of what you are doing and in turn what we are doing. From promoting yourself on your social media platforms to making use of free editorial in local papers and online news websites, you can really fire up support. The local community likes this type of news and it full of opportunities so simply ask via telephone call then follow up with an email.
Generally a worthwhile media story involves a local angle, interesting facts and figures, a human interest story that readers can identify and a picture. Try to include an image of yourself in a one of our T- shirts (contact us and we will send you one) and always include a link to your on-line fundraising page.
Give yourself plenty of time to plan publicity around your fundraising event, announcing the details well in advance. Contact your local radio station and ask for the forward planning desk and the picture desk at your local press to ensure they add it in their diary.
This is vital. Make sure all your friends and families, neighbours and on-line community know about what you are doing and get them to help out in promoting your event. The more people that are talking about what you are doing the more potential sponsors you’ll have.
