rest? But be careful, are your ideas too
ambitious to implement? Raised the most
awareness Have you communicated to an outside
audience about your fundraiser, and the Wings of

appearing in the local news? Dont make the
headlines for the wrong reasons! Best

panel? Was your delivery powerful and dynamic?
But, be sure to be concise and to get your point
across Raised the most funds Have you exhibited
powers of negotiation and initiative? Bear in
mind that this award shall only be given to those

to one award. The judges will be deciding which
entrants win specific awards
What you have to do Between October 19th 08 and
February 22nd 09 is your fundraising time Be as
cool, creative and crazy as you like. Here are a
few ideas to help you get off the
ground Please be mindful of health and
safety and keep your WOHAA liaison teacher
involved. Also make sure your fundraising is
feasible and can be done before the Snapshots
project deadline For more information on this

  • Execution of ideas
  • It is important to have regular team meetings to
    springboard new ideas and to monitor progress
  • It could be useful if team members had specific
    roles treasurer, publicity, logistics etc.
  • Keep the communication going within the team,
    and with the liaison teachers e-mails, notices
    in pigeon-holes, phone-calls, coffee mornings,
    breakfast meetings, training sessions down the
    gym …!
  • When planning for your fundraising event(s) you
    may encounter some disappoints, e.g. someone who
    has promised to arrange a DJ for a school disco
    has had to cancel at the last minute, or
    something was too expensive to organise. In order
    to minimise these, you should keep a record of
    your activities this will also help you with
    your Snapshots project
  • Throughout the process there will (hopefully) be
    a lot of petty cash flowing. How could you handle
    this? Open a bank account? Have a cash box?
  • It would also be good to publicise your
    fundraising event (s), at school, in your
    community and maybe even in the national press

Skills workshops PricewaterhouseCoopers, one of
our main sponsors, have designed some skills
workshops just for you These skills workshops
have been put together by professionals, and you
should really make the effort to attend them.
They will help you with your WOHAA project, your
university applications and interviews It will be
very useful for you to attend these workshops.
Check out the website and your e-mails for
details of the workshops. Availability is on a
first-come-first basis
Fundraising During your Fundraising… Have a
laugh, be creative and enjoy yourselves… Make
sure you take lots of photos, and keep the funny
ones for the Snapshots project…
Snapshots Project Feb 22nd 2009
We want you to snapshot all your highs, your
lows, your team dynamics, your fundraising
activities and the skills you have learnt and
developed through this project. Again, this
project can be as inventive as you like, be it as
a documentary, a video diary, a booklet, a
PowerPoint presentation or even as a song or rap
- unleash that creative side! You will also need
to get your teachers and parents to write
reference letters for your group detailing
their experience, how you have developed and what
you thought about the Wings of Hope. These will
need to be made out to Mrs. Rajni Sriram FRSA at
the address below Ensure that when you send in
your project, you also send in a cheque made
payable to the Wings of Hope, to this
address Wings of Hope, Supreme House, 12 Iron
Bridge Close, Great Central Way, London, NW10 0UF
Snapshots Project Feb 22nd 09 contd
It is very important to meet this deadline,
February 22nd 2009, as it will also form part of
the judges decision. Also, we love looking at
your pictures of Fundraising. If you could send
us 10 good quality pictures of your fundraising
activities, then they could be used on our
marketing material. Please send these pictures
in a zip file, so that they do not clog up our
inboxes! Alternatively, we may set up a public
domain website which you can upload your pictures
onto. Watch out for e-mails about this. After
the judges review these, semi finalists will be
invited to the House of Lords to give a
presentation to our Judging Panel…
Semi final at the House of Lords in March 2009
  • We thought it would be cool for you to see the
    House of Lords in action, and so we have arranged
    for you, as a token of our appreciation, to get a
    personal tour
  • After that you will be invited to give a small
    presentation to our guest panellists high
    profile individuals from business, sport,
    politics, and journalism (check out the panel on
    our website)
  • You should aim to deliver a 5 minute presentation
    to our panellists, about your team, how you
    performed, your fundraisers, and what you got out
    of it
  • Panellists will then have a 2 minute QA session
    with you about your project
  • The panellists have been invited specifically
    because they have been successful in their chosen
    field this is a unique opportunity for you to
    interact and get tips from our special guests
