Fundraising tips and ideas
Conquering the London to Brighton Bike Ride is a big achievement. We've asked all our riders to raise at least £200 in sponsorship - and we're here to help you reach your target.
We have loads of tried and tested methods of fundraising. Whether you're fundraising with friends, at school or at work, here are a few tips and ideas to help top up your fundraising total.
Set up a JustGiving page
It's not too late to create an online fundraising page. It's the easiest and fastest way for people to sponsor you.
HOW TO USE YOUR JUSTGIVING PAGE
Geek out with your very own quiz night. Ask your friends, family and colleagues to take part - all you need to do is create the questions and supply a prize for the winner!
Do the chores
Offer to give your friends, family or neighbours a hand with their everyday chores in exchange for donations. Take on all your friends' most hated chores for a tidy sum.
Big Bond fan? Love a murder mystery? Hold a themed night.
Do you have a sweet-tooth? Why not ditch the sweet treats until your event, and ask for donations to help you stay strong. Say no to sugar. Bin the biscuits and chuck the chocolate for quids.
If you can’t bring yourselves to cut out the cake, charge people to eat it instead! Force your baking skills on friends and colleagues. Another easy way to bring in the dough.
Get grilling and pump up the radio with a banging BBW for all your friends and family.
Flip for funds and hold a pancake party for your pals.
Walk your pet-loving pals' pooches for pounds.
Organise a football, softball or rounders match for moolah.
Sing along to save lives. Tone-deaf welcome.
Puck it, wax it, shave it! Ditch the fuzz for funds.
Break the box office and bring in the bucks with a movie night.
Double your money
Find out if your employer is part of the Matched Giving scheme. If they are, every £1 you raise could be doubled.
You can swap top fundraising ideas with other cyclists over on our new London to Brighton Facebook event page!
Make your sponsorship money go further - remember to tell people to Gift Aid their donations to you. We can claim another 25p for every pound raised.
