You've done it! You've completed your Race for Life and we’re incredibly proud of you. Make sure you return all the money you've raised – every penny can help us fund life-saving cancer research.

Just £10 can make a difference - play your part

Donate £10 now, by texting RACE10 to 70180, to make a one-off donation.

It couldn't be easier to donate your money to help us take a step closer to a world where everybody can live longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer.

Last year, 240,000 people didn't return any money – if all of them had raised just £10 each, that could have been an extra £2.4 million raised to fund our discoveries.

Fundraising FAQs

Race for Life accepts the following payments:

  • Cheques
  • Postal Orders
  • CAF Vouchers
  • Other Charity Vouchers
  • Foreign cheques

4-6 weeks at peak times: 1 week for the cheque to be received and sent to the bank, a further 5-7 days for the cheque to clear in the back, and a further 2 weeks for a thank you to be sent out.

At peak times it can take up to 4-6 weeks for cheques to be processed, if the cheque has not been cashed after 6 weeks, you may need to cancel the cheque and re-issue it.

We do encourage our participants to send their fundraising back to us as soon as possible so that the money can be put towards our live-saving work quickly. However, there is no strict cut off as to when you should send your fundraising money back to us and we welcome donations all year round.
