Okay. You’ve signed up. You've got your Tshirt. Hopefully running is going well. Now it’s time for us to focus on Sponsorship
Sponsorship is potentially the most exciting part of this whole process. It’s the bit where you see how much people are willing to support you - which is more than you may think!
Remember, people want to give!
We're using VirginMoneyGiving to coordinate all of our sponsorship. It's free, efficient and allows us to claim back tax on all donations.
Setting up your Sponsorship page couldn't be easier. Simply follow these 10 steps.
Remember, people want to give - help them! The more effort, creativity and heart you put in, the more people will get out of it.
Most of us don't really like asking people for money, but love compels us to act selflessly on behalf of the poor, the oppressed and the needy.
If online sponsorship is not an option for you, then download and print off a Sponsorship form.
If you've been using the Sponsorship Forms, or have been given cash or cheques, then there's an easy way to process them. First off, scan and email the sponsorship form to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send the paper copy to Love Running c/o Woodlands Church, Belgrave Road, Clifton BS8 2AA.
Then you can either enclose a cheque for the full amount, payable to Love Running CIO or, better still, transfer online at www.loverunning.info/donate or by BACS to Love Running, Sort code: 09-01-29, Account number: 07389799.
However you do it, make sure you get us a copy of the Sponsorship form, so that we can claim an extra 25% through Gift Aid.
