1. Tell your story

People will be much more engaged if they know your story. Let them know why you're taking on this challenge and why you're supporting Teenage Cancer Trust.

2. Plan your event

Giving yourself plenty of time to plan your event is the key to a successful fundraiser. If you need any fundraising materials, feel free to give us a call on 0207 612 0370 or email challenges@teenagecancertrust.org

3. Get social

Social media is the best marketing tool and it's FREE. Creating events on Facebook and inviting all your friends is a great way to get the word out there about your event.

4. Timing is key

Pay day is an excellent day to remind people of your fundraiser or event, then your friends and family really have no excuse!

5. Fundraising updates

Letting people know how close you are to your target will encourage your friends to donate and help you reach your final goal. Everyone wants to be that friend who pushed your total to £2,000 (or whatever your personal target is!).
