Ideas
You can organise an event at home, at work, at your local sports or social club, with friends, with colleagues. 
Here are just some of the ideas that people have used in our area to organise their own fund raising event for Cancer Research UK:
  • Sponsored events - walks, swims, cycle rides, marathons, runs, sponsored anything - one boy got himself sponsored to be quiet for 48 hours!
  • Mufti days at school
  • Race nights
  • Car boot or garage sale - sell your unwanted stuff in aid of Cancer Research
  • Business offers - such as the superb support we've had from the Poacher's Pocket restaurant recently!
  • Balls, parties, and so on...
Contact us for publicity materials, publicity on this web site, news after the event, Press publicity, cheque presentations, and all sorts of other ways of attracting people to get involved.  And it's just good to know and support whatever's happening in the area.
Money matters
We can supply collecting tins and then bank the money that you collect from your event.  An alternative that you can easily set up is a Cancer Research UK sponsorship web page using JustGiving.com.  This has the additional benefit that it handles Gift Aid, which makes donations up to 28% more valuable.
How it works:
    • You choose your event from Cancer Research UK's official event list, or create your own.
    • You fill in your name and address and choose a password. JustGiving.com will not share your details with anyone except the charity you are raising money for.
    • You choose a web address for your page, write a title and a message and, if you have one to hand, add a photo. That's it, your fundraising web page is live on the Web!
    • You then email the address of your page to everyone you know, anywhere in the world. They donate online by credit or debit card and get an email receipt. JustGiving.com charges a small transaction fee on donations.
    • The money you raise is paid into Cancer Research UK's bank account along with Gift Aid. Your job? To sit back and watch your total grow - oh, and walk that walk, swim that swim, etc.
