So your training is underway – now it's time to raise your sponsorship money. The more you raise, the more you'll be doing to help seriously ill children and their families across the UK.
First things first
Set up your online sponsorship page by visiting JustGiving. Sponsorship raised this way comes directly to us, making it easy for everyone, it’s a really quick and convenient way for friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you by debit or credit card. Make sure you post your link on Facebook or Twitter and email your link to family and friends to donate online. Have a look at our Fundraising ideas which will help you hit your fundraising target.
There are lots of ways to maximise your page’s potential – have a look at JustGiving’s ideas here

Supersize your donations!
If every donation you receive includes ‘Gift Aid’, an extra 25% is added to the total donation we receive. So for every £100 you raise, we receive an additional £25 in Gift Aid.
Gift Aid couldn’t be easier, just ask your sponsors to read the statement on the downloadable sponsor form and tick the Gift Aid box if they agree, tick the box on the Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving page.
You need to ensure that your sponsors have provided their full name, home address and postcode. This is purely for the purpose of qualifying for Gift Aid and we will not contact the individuals.
