How to publicise your event
The more people who know about your event the better! By telling people about the amazing thing you are doing for us. There are lots of ways to promote your fundraising events online using social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Why not put together a home video and post it on Youtube? It can be emotive, entertaining and can be of anything from a personal message to a diary of your planning. Posting snippets of video to Twitter and Facebook can be a fun way of keeping people up to date with your fundraising event! Posters may seem a bit old fashioned when everything appears to be online, but they do get noticed! Put up posters in your local area and ask everyone from cafes owners to libraries and post offices.
