2. Researching and building relationships with possible local supporters including local business owners, encouraging them to fundraise on our behalf.
3. Recruiting friends, family, colleagues and so on, to grow the fundraising group.
4. If possible, cheering on/supporting any volunteers in the area undertaking a challenge event such as a run, cycle or swim.
5. Communicating with the named contact to keep them informed of activities and any fundraising materials or support required
