Instagram

Instagram is a fantastic tool to help promote your fundraising efforts for CPT! You can post photos of your fundraising activity or create stories to help spread awareness for our work. Instagram stories are particularly brilliant as you can now add a donation sticker that allows your followers to donate to CPT! Follow us on Instagram @cureparkinsonstrust.

Blogs

If you like writing, blogging can be a fantastic way for you to document your fundraising! Not only will it keep your supporters updated on your activities, but it will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in an online community of fellow fundraisers! Writing your fundraising story can also be a great way to inspire others to take on their own challenges to raise money for charity! For some inspiration on what makes a great blog, take a look at CPT supporter Alison Anderson’s Ramblings of a Cyclopath.
