So Wing, you and your friends have been supporting EveryChild for a while now – how did you get started?
I got involved in EveryChild through my friend Peter, who has been a supporter for over 20 years. My group of friends have hosted several events for EveryChild ranging from a drumming session to a tennis tournament.
How do you decide on your fundraising ideas?
The events we have hosted have been based on our interests and hobbies. We believe it is important, not only to raise money for EveryChild, but also to promote the charity and encourage others to help with fundraising activities.
How did you plan and promote your cupcake sale?
Lauren and I both work in banking but also run www.cakevanity.co.uk. The website helped us promote our fundraising and we sold cakes to our families, friends and colleagues.
Did you enjoy baking and selling all those cakes?
I have always been a passionate baker. During cupcake week, we baked over 200 cupcakes! It was very rewarding to see people’s faces light up when they brought a cake and knew that the money was helping EveryChild.
Trying to fit the organising around my busy day. It has helped having friends who actively support EveryChild. We split tasks for each event. Any challenges can be overcome – the events are fun and the money is going to a great cause.
What are your top fundraising tips?
Organise an event with friends, it makes it easier to bounce ideas off each other and split tasks. And make the event fun – for your supporters and you!
