    You can rarely scroll through your Facebook newsfeed without seeing at least one fundraising page and that is because it is one of the most effective, easiest ways of encouraging families, friends and colleagues to sponsor you. By setting up a JustGiving page, you can share your fundraising page on Facebook and Twitter as often as you want to.

    Having an online fundraising page also means you do not have to physically collect money after the event, plus Gift Aid is automatically calculated and processed.

    Facebook Fundraisers...

    Facebook Fundraisers are a great way for people to donate to your event fundraising. Please let us know, by emailing the events team, if you set up a Fundraiser on Facebook; we receive limited information from Facebook which makes it extremely hard for us to link the donation to your fundraising otherwise.
