Fundraising is a great way of increasing awareness of The Abingdon Bridge amongst the local community and generating much needed funds to keep us running.
Follow our useful tips on how to get started with fundraising and make your event to support the work we do a memorable one.
Step 1: Decide on a fundraising event
Whether you want to take on a marathon, hold a bake sale, dive out of a plane or organise a dress up day, there are endless ways to raise funds for us.
Step 2: Set up an online fundraising page
We recommend setting up your online fundraising page as soon as possible using JustGiving.
This is a simple way to raise funds for TAB. You can personalise your page with a story, images and details of your fundraising which can then be easily shared with everyone, and every penny comes directly to us – including Gift Aid!
Step 3: Promote your fundraising
To really make your event a success, it’s a great idea to promote it to as many people as possible. So tell friends and family, advertise it at work, school or on local notice boards in your community and of course, share it on social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Step 4: On the day
With all the hard work and planning done, the only thing left is to enjoy the day!
Make sure to take plenty of photos, send them to us and post them on social media – it may help to bring in a few extra donations and our social media team might be able to help by sharing and retweeting them too.
Step 5: Donate the funds
After your fundraising event, there are a number of different ways you can donate what you have raised to TAB.
Please make any cheques payable to ‘The Abingdon Bridge’ and send to us at: The Abingdon Bridge, 3 Market Place, Abingdon, OX14 3HG.
Please note, we are unable to accept any cash donations sent by post.
Donate any funds raised securely online through our Donate page.
Your fundraising page
If you’ve set up an online fundraising page, there’s nothing more you need to do – your supporters donate online and the platform sends it directly to us once your event is finished.
When using any of these ways to send TAB your funds, please make sure to reference any donations and get in touch so that we are able to thank you for your wonderful efforts!
