I’ve got my fundraising ideas. What’s next?

Give yourself as much time as possible to plan. You’ll need to think about:  

  • local community raising moneyTiming - before fixing a date, check it doesn’t clash with something like the World Cup Final or another
    Keech Hospice Care organised event.
  • Supporters - who can you get involved and taking part? It’s great to fundraise
    with your friends, family and work colleagues. Maybe your local pub,
    school, religious establishment or community group would be willing to help?
  • Cost - think about what you might end up spending. Do you need to hire a venue, print posters or tickets, or purchase any licences and insurance policies? Will your ticket price or suggested donations cover these and still leave you with money to donate to Keech Hospice Care? Set a budget and try to borrow items rather than buy everything. Talk to us on 01582 707940 about managing your budget. 
  • Contingencies - if something was to go wrong, what could you do? You may need a back-up plan in the event of bad weather, parking problems or equipment failures.

Who can help?
