If you wish to hold a collection for the appeal the easiest way is to set up a DEC fundraising page on JustGiving. This will allow your supporters to donate electronically and you can keep track of how much is being raised. The money is then automatically sent to the DEC. If you go to http://www.dec.org.uk/fundraise-for-us and click on 'Register Now' it will take you to the JustGiving registration page. It's easy and quick to set up your own page and you can customise it to suit your event and personality
Alternatively if you are holding a collection in a public place or just don’t want to collect money online you can download a sponsorship form with extra pages here. If you ask everyone who donates to sign individually if they are eligible for Gift Aid then this will increase their donation by 25% at no cost to themselves. When you have finished collecting go to many ways to donate to find the best way of donating for you.
