THE STREET CHILD CRAFT HALF ZONE
Congratulations on joining the Street Child Craft Half team and a warm welcome to the Street Child family! We've designed this space for all Craft Halfters so you can find all you need to know about fundraising, training and event Terms & Conditions.
Start time: 11am
Location: Richardson Evans Memorial Fields, Wimbledon Common, London, SW15 3DU
Distance: 13.1 miles/10km
Route: 2 laps (1 lap for 10K route)
Facilities: Water stations, toilets, bag drop, post-race food and drink. No parking, please use public transport!
Getting there: There's no parking on-site but LOTS of public transport. The two buses that run closest to the our start line are the 85 and the 265, which both start from Putney Bridge station on the District Line. The bus stop you want is Roehampton Vale/ Asda (Stop PB), and it is a short walk from there to the Richardson Evans field.
This is THE most important part of the Street Child Craft Half (apart from the beer). Why? Because this is our chance to run and change lives. Every pound you raise for the Craft Half will be matched by the UK Government meaning double the impact for half the effort!
Good preparation is crucial in order to maximise your efforts - so follow our simple six step plan to fundraising success!
Step 1: Set up your online giving page here! Why is this important? Because the first step is often the hardest. Personalise your page, set a target and share!
Step 2: Download our amazing fundraising pack (see below). It's full of tips and ideas and will help you smash your fundraising target. Any questions - drop us an email; we're here to support you all the way!
Step 3: Use your networks - think about social groups, friends, family, colleagues!
Step 4: Promote shamelessly! Successful fundraising is just like good sales and marketing. On average people need to see your page 5 times before making a donation so get creative and link your giving page to updates, training runs, email signatures...
Step 5: In the workplace - check if your company offers matched funding, approach suppliers for donations, add your online fundraising page to your email signature.
GOOD LUCK! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
