The business in question is the gym I am a member of. It has a group on facebook, set up by the gym, and is mostly used to update opening times for bank holidays, letting members know about membership deals, supplements and so on. There have been posts from members, gym related stuff or does anyone want to go to fitness show with me type stuff. There was a post to raise sponsorship once but this was for an event taking place in the gym.
My question is would it be inappropriate to post asking if anyone would sponsor me, via on-line form or txt so no need for anyone to hold cash, as I am taking part in a charity fun run? I guess my best bet would be to ask the owner as it's a small local gym so he's rarely not there?
I think I just answered my own question but are there any general guidelines for this type of facebook group?
