Top tips to help you get the most out of your page

Tell your story
To help people understand why you’re passionate about raising money for us, this is your chance to connect with your donors; people will donate more if they know the reason why you’re fundraising.

Add a photo
This will make your page more personal and bring it to life. You could add a photo of you in one of our t-shirts or running vests; and if you are fundraising in memory of a loved one you could add a photo of the two of you together.

Add a target
Pages with targets raise much more than those that don’t. Be brave and let everyone know you’re aiming high.

Social media
Share the link to your page on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also blog about any training or events you’re doing, and don’t forget to tag us (@livertrust on Twitter) so we can share your efforts!

Your friends are more likely to sponsor you when they see the hard work you’re putting in. Don’t forget to thank everyone who sponsors you on social media too, and ask them to share; friends of friends might support you too.

Encourage Gift Aid

Gift Aid is worth over £40,000 a year to the British Liver Trust. Don’t forget to encourage friends and family to Gift Aid their donation if they are a UK taxpayer, it doesn’t cost them any extra. For every £1 they donate, the British Liver Trust receives an extra 25p!

The final push
Some people will sponsor you after your event is over so don’t forget to share your success with everyone afterwards – it might even take you over your target!
