Localgiving - Local Hero
Created: 11/04/2022, Updated: 13/04/2022
During April, all fundraisers via the Localgiving website will be automatically included in the campaign and ranked on the Local Hero leaderboard according to the number of unique online donors that sponsor their page.
As a charity or community group, to take part you need to have an active Localgiving membership and to ask your supporters to fundraise for you throughout the month of April. Supporters simply need to set themselves a challenge, create a fundraising page through Localgiving and ask their friends, family, colleagues and anyone else they know to sponsor them at any time between the 1 and 30 of April.
The top 20 fundraisers will be awarded prizes ranging from £100 to £1,000.
