Fundraising Hints & Tips

There are loads of great ways to boost your groups fundraising target. Here are a few Toddle favourites:

  1. Set yourself a target, tell people and smash it! There's a handy poster in your Big Toddle pack that will let people know how much you're hoping to raise.
  2. Set up an online sponsorship page for your group. It’s the easiest, safest and quickest way for sponsors to give. And it’s free - there are no hidden charges. It also collects the money straight away so will save you chasing people afterwards.
  3. Share the link to your group’s online sponsorship page on social media or by email encouraging friends, family and your community to help your littles ones reach their target.
  4. Tell the local press about your Big Toddle using tips from your How to Guide in your Big Toddle pack. You can include the link to your online fundraising page and encourage your community to support your group.
  5. Add extra fundraising ideas to your Big Toddle like a tasty cake sale, a fun raffle or exciting treasure hunt. There’s a list of fun ideas to inspire you in the Fundraising Guide in your Big Toddle pack.

Share your fundraising ideas

Every year groups create unique and special Big Toddle days. Please help us spread the word about how much fun taking part in the Big Toddle is by sharing your day with us – letting us know how you got on, how much you raised and adding your pictures to the Big Toddle Gallery!

Collecting and paying in your sponsorship money

Once you’ve raised all your sponsorship money it’s time to pay it in! The quicker you do, the quicker we can put it to use where it’s needed most – creating brighter futures for the children we work with in our Early Years services.

Simply choose from one of the following ways to pay:
