1: Remember "If you don’t ask you don’t get"

2: If you are trying to raise a specific amount eg for a trek, break the sum down into bite sized chunks

3: Put a plan together with a timeline if necessary

4: Make sponsorship easy for the person who is giving eg ’cheques should be made payable to CANCERactive’

5: Offer to take the money there and then (or you have to ask twice!)

6: Remember people find it more difficult to say ’no’ face to face

7: When you contact people make sure you always follow up, chase and call back

8: Offer a ’pay back’ or incentive eg I will come and speak at your club about my experience.

9: Try to identify original ideas (everyone asks for money waving a sponsorship form)

10: Always use CANCERactive charity logo and charity registration number

11: Get help from others eg family, friends, work colleagues, employers, clubs and associations
