When you have set this up or if you already have an account , log in to your account

Search for free@last

Click on ‘fundraise for us’

Click on ‘organised event’

Select The Oddball Run to connect your sponsorship to this event

Choose your page name – options are given or you can create your own

Answer the 2 questions on donations and fundraising with ‘No’ and then create your page.

Now you can start your fundraising – you can edit your page to make it specific to you and your fundraising for the Oddball Challenge.

 

If you have any problems or questions, please email: sarah@freeatlast.st 

 

Step 4: Raise sponsorship (TARGET £500+ per vehicle)

Send a link to your just giving page to all your friends and business contacts, clients, suppliers and encourage them to sponsor you for a small amount of money, say £10, or £20. The money goes direct to the charity. Once your team has £500 or more on your just giving page then you are eligible to take part.

Yes, we know this seems quite a lot but it is a special event which only happens once a year, so you are in a small group of people who can take part. You will be amazed how quickly you can reach and pass the £500 target for sponsorship if you simply ask people. That’s 50 people for a tenner each, then you’re away. Try your suppliers, ask of they want their logo on your car, charge another tenner for this, or more for a prominent place… Please remember it is all to help underprivileged children so go on, ask people for sponsorship and you’ll be amazed at the positive results that will follow.
