But you do need to have a fairly strict approach to the day's proceedings. Approach local businesses. Companies are often bombarded with requests for products or special offers that can be used for raffles and fetes.
Make sure that any purchases are followed up with a leaflet with all your contact details added. These persons could be your next client!
