5) You have now created a team! From this page you can view how much money your team has raised and how far you’ve each swum.


6) If you click ‘View Just Giving page’ this is what you will see. Currently it only shows your individual page as you have just created a new team, however, when others join the team it will show their pages as well.

FAQS

What does being in a team mean?

Being in a team means you can see how many lengths each member of your team has swum and how far you all are across the Channel. You can also see where you are on the team leaderboard in terms of fundraising and distance swum.

It also means you can fundraise together, as creating a team on the Aspire Channel Swim website will create you a team Just Giving page. This means your individual Just Giving pages will be linked.

When I try to join a team it comes up with an error message?

Whoops! This is probably just a website hiccup. Email swim@aspire.org.uk with the name of the team you want to join and your name, and someone will add you to your chosen team.

Why do I need an individual Just Giving page?

Firstly we think Just Giving is the easiest way of collecting sponsors; you can share it round your friends and family with the click of a button and the money you raise on it comes straight to Aspire! You need to have an individual page to create a team as your pages will be linked together to create a team Just Giving page. If you only want one fundraising page (i.e you're completing the swim as a family) please email swim@aspire.org.uk.

I'm linked to the team on the Aspire Channel Swim website, but my Just Giving page isn't showing in the team Just Giving page?

1) To go www.justgiving.com and log in to your Just Giving page. This will be using the email and password you created when you signed up.

2) Search the name of the person who created the team (in this example TeamMember 1). Underneath their page title will be a list of the teams they are a part of, click yours.

3) Once on the team page, click join team (the creator of the team page may have to confirm you can join) Done!
