How can I raise £295?
Share your fundraising page and tell everyone why you’re taking part
Share a photo from your walk as a reminder for people to donate
Add your fundraising page link to your email signature
Contact your local press and share your Step Challenge story
Share a fact about ovarian cancer after each walk or each time you hit a steps milestone.
Thank each of your wonderful donors and let them know the difference they’re making
- Make your page shine. It sounds simple but adding a photo, setting a target and telling your story is proven to significantly increase your fundraising success.
- Sometimes people don’t want to be the first to donate, so get your fundraising page started by self-donating. Research shows that fundraisers who self-donate raise 54% more.
- If you raise £10 a day or ask 10 people to each donate £29.50, you’ll reach your target in no time!
- Encourage friends and family to donate specific amounts, for example: £2.95 is the equivalent of your daily morning coffee, bus journey or a lunchtime meal deal.
- Let everyone know when you’re close to a milestone and ask them to donate to help you get there, for example: your first £100 or first 100,000 steps.
