Are you worried about reaching your fundraising target? Not sure where or how to start? Take a look at our Ten Top Tips below and watch those donations come flooding in! 

Have fun! 

1. Use your fundraising page like a blog, and post photos and comments about your training. You can then share the page regularly, updating your friends and family on your progress. No need to ask for money, your page will do it for you! Kick-start your fundraising by sponsoring yourself £20 on your page and setting the standard.

2. Buy some pin badges from our online Walk the Walk shop to sell, or declutter and use EBay or your local car boot sale to make money from your pre-loved items.

3. Offer to clean windows, walk dogs, water gardens, wash cars or any other little jobs that neighbours will be happy to pay a donation for.

4. Get crafty! If you enjoy arts and crafts this is your chance to make cards, Christmas decorations, stuffed animals, biscuits, Easter egg cosies, the list is endless! Be creative and share your creations on Facebook.

5. Coffee mornings are very popular. Hold the event in your house, or a village hall if you want to go big (hirers will often offer a cheaper charity rate, there's no harm in asking!) Make or buy cakes, have a raffle and a couple of little games. Serve coffee (or Prosecco) and watch those donations roll in!

6. Quizzes are also popular... maybe your local pub already does one and will let you take it over one week? Or, maybe they will let you run one anyway. Alternatively, you can hire (or borrow) a local hall.

7. Be original... think of something different to do as people will be more likely to support you. Getting people to sponsor a ribbon on your bra dedicated to a special person can make the Challenge extra special as well as increasing your fundraising.

8. If you're holding an event, have lots of little extras! Why not add a raffle, tombola, guess the number of sweets in the jar etc, to help bump up the donations.

9. Organise a collection outside a local supermarket. Speak to the Charity Champion or Store Manager to arrange a day, hire some collection tins from Walk the Walk, and round up a few friends to give you a hand on the day.

10. Give up something you love... for sponsorship of course! Chocolate, alcohol, cake, sweets, smoking, talking... the choice is yours!
