1. Talk to us

    Get in touch as we'd love to hear your fundraising ideas, and we're happy to help in any way we can. Also, don't forget your free fundraising pack - full of useful advice and materials to get you started.

  2. There's no need to go it alone

    Getting some extra support from friends and family is always a good idea. They can help out in different ways, such as promoting your online fundraising page on social media, or helping out on the day of your event.

  3. Health and safety

    If you’re organising an event, you need to make sure that all health and safety precautions are taken to keep everyone safe and avoid any accidents.

    Read our advice on how to keep your event legal and safe for more information.

  4. It's all about the cause

    Make sure you let people know why you’ve chosen to support St John Ambulance – the more they know about our inspirational work, the more likely they are to support our cause.

    Think about what makes St John Ambulance special to you. If you need a little inspiration, learn more about how your support saves lives.

  5. Create an online fundraising page

    Set up an online fundraising page  that you can share with your friends, family, and colleagues. It's simple and easy, and a great way to share why you're fundraising.

  6. Share it on social media

    Tell people what you’re doing and why you're doing it by sharing a link to your online fundraising page on social media. Make sure to tweet @stjohnambulance, and like us on Facebook for advice and updates.

    Remember to use #TeamSJA as we'd love to see what you're up to!

  7. Most of all, have a good time

    Enjoy your event! Have fun baking cakes, singing karaoke, or whatever it is you’re doing. Let’s face it, you’re doing it for a good cause.

    We love seeing what our wonderful fundraisers are up to, so be sure to share your fundraising activities on social media or your online fundraising page.

  8. Say thank you

    After it’s all done, make sure you say thank you to everybody who helped and gave their support. You could send handwritten thank you cards or create an update on social media.
