The Clock Is Ticking, So Hurry Up

Account Name: free@last
Sort code: 40-47-11
Account number: 02386062
Step 3: Setting up a just giving page(s)
Setting up a Just Giving page is a great way to get sponsorship from people far and wide.
Don’t have a Just giving account, go to www.justgiving.com, and follow the step by step instructions.
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: C3K@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 every other 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 if they want their logo on your car, charge another tenner for this, or more money 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.
We will have more information coming nearer the event, but if you have any questions in the meantime, please email us at email@example.com
