Spread the word

Group of people taking a selfie on a walk.

Now you’ve decided to get involved and fundraise, you’ll need to start spreading the word about what you’re doing to raise money through your social media and contacting your local media.

The Ramblers relies on your generous support so stay safe while fundraising and together we can help in the fight for walkers’ rights, protecting our green spaces and ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the benefits of being outdoors. 

Use social media

You can use social media to promote your event, let people know why you’re fundraising for the Ramblers and boost your donations.
