    • The simplest way to raise much needed funds is to ask all your guests to make a donation to take part. You can suggest any amount you want or let people make a donation of their choice
    • If you have a personal connection to dementia, telling people about it will bring your reason for fundraising to life
    • You can also organise extra fundraising activities, such as selling refreshments, organising a raffle or setting up a wheel of fortune. If you decide to hold a raffle, please get in touch so we can send you a letter of authority to help you source prizes
    • Share your fundraising page with friends and family – you’ll be surprised how generous some people can be.
