Once signed up, how do I start my fundraising and set up my fundraising page?
Once you have signed up to the runs/walks and chosen your charity, you can set up your online fundraising page by logging on to Just Giving www.justgiving.com. Once you have set this up you can start sending out the online link to all your friends and family to start collecting donations! Your charity will also send you a welcome pack which will give you advice and support on how to go about your fundraising plans.
What happens if I fail to raise the minimum sponsorship amount?
The Christmas Charity Festival is a fundraising event for charity - and therefore by signing up you are committing to fundraise the minimum sponsorship for your chosen charity
Failure to meet the initial target could result in you being unable to take part in the walk. However this is down to the discretion of the charity and will be decided on a case by case basis. In 2014 the average fundraising total reached by our runners/walkers was £75 - often once you get the ball rolling you will see the collections and sponsorship flood in!
Who should I speak to regarding fundraising issues and my sponsorship pack?
Once you have signed up to the runs/walks we will send out a fundraising pack - if you still haven't received within two weeks of registering then please contact your charity.
I would like to fundraise for a charity who aren't on the list or website?
If you'd like to fundraise for a charity who aren't listed on the website, you can still sign up to our events by selecting "A Charity Not Listed" - we will then contact that charity just to confirm they are happy for you to fundraise on their behalf!
Can I fundraise for more than one charity?
Yes, but you must choose your lead charity on the website and then inform the 2nd charity with your intentions
As a team can we pool our fundraising?
Yes - as long as you are all fundraising for the same charity - you can create a team fundraising page on Just Giving - we also recommend that you let your charity know this is how you will be fundraising.
