In order to start raising donations you need to initially go to virgin money giving and follow the instructions for registering and setting up your page.
IMPORTANT: Remember to select the appropriate charities i.e. Cancer Research UK and Countess Mountbatten Hospice, both are registered with Virgin by doing a search in the site and simply select both charities. (The donations should be split 50/50)
Write your story and add photos of yourself and anything to help raise funds, it should be easy to do.
April 16th updated guidance
Once you have set up your individual page please go to the Inspired Living page and scroll down to the ‘Link to you personal fundraising challenge’ section and click Next – you will only see this if you are signed on to your Virgin Money Giving account.
From the dropdown box, choose the challenge you have just created, and click Next. DO NOT try to create a new fundraising page!!
If you have done everything right, you will be taken back to your challenge page, and you should see the Inspired Living link just under the Total Raised value.
If you click on this link, you will be taken to the ‘Team’ page, showing the overall total funds raised, at the bottom of this is the ‘Supporters’ section, where you should see your name and how much you have raised on the ‘Fundraisers’ tab.
