A great way to raise a large amount of money for charity is by holding a special event. This could be a fayre or fete, a charity ball or a charity auction – there are plenty of events that you can use to raise some much-needed funds. But if you have never done anything like this before, what are the best ways to go about setting one up?
Well, the first thing you need to do is some good planning – budget well and make sure the amount that you raise exceeds what you spend hosting the event. You may be able to reach out to the local community – both businesses and individuals who may sponsor the vent or donate some of their time to help you with it.
It is also a good idea to make sure you are compliant with laws when you are arranging your event – check that you have the correct licenses and also that all safety measures are in place such as having event medical cover like Outdoor Medical Solutions (OMS) in case anybody falls ill or has an accident whilst there.
Advertise your event everywhere! Get in touch with your local radio station, put up posters, and deliver leaflets and use the internet and social media to reach as many people as possible – when it comes to advertising there is not too much that you can do so make sure you make the most of every opportunity to tell people all about it.
