The more people you tell about your fundraising, the more successful it’s likely to be. Two of the ways you can do this are to tell your local newspapers and radio stations, and post about it on social media.
Get in the press
Newspapers love to hear about their local heroes, and as a fundraiser for Lifelites, you are one. Make sure you get in touch. The easiest way of doing this is to send over a press release; this way you can send over all the information at once in a way that is easy for the journalist to share. If you are unsure how to structure it, here are a few tips:
Once you have written your release, send it to your local paper. You should be able to find the contact details you need on their website.
If you’re struggling to get it right, just get in touch with Hannah at Lifelites and she’ll be able to help you. Email email@example.com or call 0207 440 4200.
Social networks are a fantastic and easy way of sharing your fundraising with family and friends. The most popular are Facebook and Twitter.
Make sure you post with links to your fundraising page explaining why you have chosen to fundraise for Lifelites. It also helps to include pictures and video, taken from you mobile phone!

John Donoghue is a dedicated Lifelites Benefactor. He shared with us his very moving personal story about his daughter's health and the reason he decided to become a benefactor, and make a regular monthly gift to Lifelites.
Our Patrons support our vision, mission and values and give all of their time for free. Their contribution and support is highly valued.
Lifelites aims to harness the power of technology by donating a wide variety of assistive and inclusive equipment to enhance the lives of life-limited and disabled children using hospice services.
For these children with complex cognitive and physical impairments, this technology is quite simply magical. It gives them opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have to join in with the world around them, irrespective of their disabilities.
Providing these opportunities is only possible because of the donations that Lifelites receives.
We have two new additions to our magical technology package! Click below to learn more about the Tilt Table and the PODs Sensory Tent!
