We've got some great tips to help you raise much needed funds for Cancer Council. We also want your Patio Day to be fun and stress-free, so we’ve pulled together some top tips to help you with your planning:
Preheat with a little preparation
Make a simple list of what you need to do to get your invites out in plenty of time. To make it easy, ask people to bring a plate to share.
Add a dash of Inspiration
Think up some fun activities, or dream up a theme. People love a good time for a great cause, so do stuff they can get involved in.
Spread the Word
Set up a Facebook event for National Patio Day. Post pictures of your event to your social media pages using the hashtag #NationalPatioDay—there’s prizes to win!
Staying safe in the sun
If UV levels reach 3 or above on your National Patio Day it is important that you and your guests are protected. Staying in the shade under your patio is a perfect way to stay safe from the sun, but don’t forget to also slip on protective clothing, slop on sunscreen, slap on a broad brimmed hat and slide on sunglasses to give you and your guest’s maximum protection from damaging UV.
