Private – Sleepers Page

Hi Sleepers

We’ve created this page to make sure you have access to the info and resources you might need.

 

Raising Funds – Online

Raising funds via VirginMoneyGiving is now the most efficient way. It saves lots of admin time, and the charity receives the donation and gift aid directly.

To set up a fundraising page on VirginMoneyGiving, please click here and select the ‘Start Fundraising’ option on the right.

Once you’ve created your online giving page, be sure to share it via social media and email.

 

Raising Funds – In Person

Please remember that Gift Aid can make a huge difference to your fundraising. If your sponsors include their full name and full address, and they tick the Gift Aid box on the form, we can claim an extra 25% from the government – so a £10 donation is worth £12.50 to us.

If you would like a visual aid to help you fundraise please download the appropriate fundraising target thermometer below:

Building Your Team

You’re very welcome to attend Sleep Easy as a solo fundraiser, but if you want to include colleagues or friends (18+ only this year), please refer them to the Sleep Easy page on our website.  The share links at the bottom of that page are simple to use; just click on the Facebook or Twitter buttons and the info will come up on  your social media.
