A great way to promote your fundraising event is through your own social media channels.
As soon as you’ve decided on the details of your event, post about it on your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram account and tell all your friends, family and colleagues how they can support you. If you’re using social media to promote your event, be sure to tag St Catherine’s Hospice so that we can see what you’re up to as well! You can find us here:

Our top tips for using social media to promote your fundraising event
Tag St Catherine’s Hospice
Make sure you tag us in your posts and tweets so that we can like and share them!
Post about your fundraising event as many times as you like; the more the better!
Create a video
Video is the best way to engage people with your fundraising on social media. You don’t need fancy equipment: use your phone to create a short video of you talking about your event and asking people to support you. Be sure to get some video at the event too to share with your supporters afterwards!
If you don’t fancy creating a video, at least make sure you’re sharing photos on your social media. Posts with a picture get much more engagement than those without: take snaps of your training, setting up the event, of people at the event…anything that will give people an understanding of what you’re doing!
Post on local pages and be part of our community of fundraisers on Facebook
There are lots of local community Facebook pages that you can post on to promote your event and encourage more people to come along. Simply search your local town or village and see what comes up. It’s a fantastic way to raise awareness.
Share updates about your progress on our St Catherine’s Hospice Fundraisers page the same way you’d write a post on your own wall. We love to see how you are doing and inspire other fundraisers with your pictures and updates.
