Fundraising Ideas

There are so many things to do to raise funds, what is important is that you choose something that you will have fun doing! Also remember that often the first time round, you learn more than you raise, so consider repeating whatever it is that you tried a second or third time. Persistence (and fun) are the keys to successful fundraising. Here are some ideas to consider.
