Now that you're taking part, you need to get yourself
We think that 100 people will end up taking part in
this, and if we set (say) an average of £200
per person collected, then that'll make a brilliant sum of £20,000
Plus of course we may get money on the day. TFL are
giving us all a bunch of Red Cross endorsed promotional leaflets that
we can hand out to people who enquire as to what we are doing. These
will encourage people to make a dontation, as strictly - we are not
allowed to collect any money on trains ourselves.
There are two ways to sponsor yourself, you can use
either one of them - or both of them!
1. Online - At JustGiving.com
First, go to this webpage here -> www.justgiving.com/lbr/
This is the 'root' page for money raised for the
London Bombing Relief (LBR) fund.
If you make an account from this page, it will be
linked back to here and we'll be able more easily to see in total
how much has been raised.
follow the instructions - choose "other" event when asked
to "create your page", put in your name/details, etc.. and
it then provides you with a link to pass around to other people to
get them to sponsor you/donate money online - e.g. Me & Neil have
our page here: www.justgiving.com/notafraid/
Don't choose "sporting event"
- because this will force you to put in a date, and we
& TFL don't want the date publically known until the very last
minute - so don't put the date on your JustGiving page!
You can also use the button/link shown here [right]
on your own webpages, blog etc to link it to the JustGiving page,
and/or the JustGiving page itself.
2. Using a good ol' paper sponsorship form

a copy, print it out and you can then take this round with you and
get people to fill it in.
This does have the disadvantage of having to chase
up people after the even to get the money, but some people still prefer
doing it this way.

As and when people sign up online, tell me the link
to your 'JustGiving' site, and I will list them all here:
If you're looking for someone to sponsor, then you
could do worse than choose one of these fine people who have already
committed to taking part, and have set up their online 'sponsor me'
pages at the following locations:
