Set a realistic target figure to raise, allowing for weather conditions and
expected turnout, let's say £500. Now work out where that money is going to come
from. Will you be charging visitors at the gate to attend the event? If so will
this deter visitors from coming to your event if the fee is set to high. Try to
establish a fee that is suitable for the audience you are trying to attract.
Stalls and attractions are good ways of raising money particularly if committee
members operate them for no charge and when items to be sold are donated for
free (perhaps from schoolchildren).
