A picture paints a thousand words! Use an online pin board to chart your progress.
Why not make a short video to show what you're doing is so important.
Don't forget to say thanks!
Add a wall post note when someone sponsors you. It acts as a thank you and a reminder to others in the newsfeed that they need to sponsor you. When your event is over you can thank your supporters, individually and collectively and do let them know how much difference everyone has made together.
How your fundraising helps
£15 could help... run our sensory rooms for one week.
Many children suffer from illnesses which can impair their senses.
Our sensory rooms help stimulate the senses through use of bubble tubes, fibre optics, soothing music and heated water beds.
£50 could fund... our messy play materials in our hospices for three weeks.
This will give sick children and their siblings a place to play, express themselves and to create masterpieces.
