Fundraising ideas

Boost your fundraising

Leave cancer quaking in its boots with these top fundraising ideas:

  • Dress down day: ideal if you work in an office. Everyone wear casual clothes for a day and pay a small fee.
  • Give cancer a kick: take on cancer with a sponsored kick-boxing or aerobics class at your local gym, workplace or community centre and charge people to take part.
  • A night at the movies: have a pyjama party and watch chick flicks. Charge the price of a cinema ticket.
  • A sweet treat: ask for a donation and lay on tea, coffee and cakes. No one will be able to resist (in moderation of course!)
  • Job swap: sponsor your boss to work on reception or auction your manager’s job for the day.
