· Ask your Treasurer to make out 4 cheques to the local paper or magazine.

· Make these cheques out to the newspaper or magazine and get them signed BUT NOT DATED. That's right. DO NOT DATE THEM

· Put the amount as about 1/3rd of the cost of a ¼ page advertisement so the cheques are for about £35 for a £150 ($300) advertisement as an example.

· Devise your ¼ page ad and get it printed out clearly on hi-gloss paper. It should look like the artwork does in a printers shop.

· Make sure it does not have a place or a date or a time. It should be something that can be run at any time of the year.
