Yes, of course! Social media is a great way to drum up ticket sales, particularly at a time when we are unable to run our regular Bunnings BBQs and other face-to-face fundraising activities.
Posting on your local Group Facebook page is a great way to elicit support from families and encourage them to help sell tickets. You can also post on local community noticeboards to give members of your community the opportunity to support their local Scouts.
We’ve prepared some social media graphics which you can view and download to use in your social media posts by clicking the images below.
Here are some suggested captions to go with these posts:
