We think fundraising for Scope is something for you to shout about! It’s a great opportunity to ask for donations, publicise your event or spread the word about Scope.
Below are a selection of ideas and resources to help you get your fundraising noticed. It’s easier than you think, and we've got some brilliant tools to get you started.

Approaching local and regional media

The media are always on the lookout for new stories, especially a personal one such as your family's experience, a triumph over tragedy or something their readers can relate to. A story in your local paper is a simple, effective way to let your community know you’re supporting Scope.

Press release templates

A press release is a brief summary alerting the local media to your activity. It's an opportunity to tell the community what a great challenge you are taking on. If the thought of having to try and write a press release is stopping you, download our template.
