Organise a fundraising event

Cancer is too big an issue for any one of us to tackle alone. We know we are stronger when we work together

By organising a fundraising activity for the Cancer Society you can extend a helping hand to cancer patients and their families - now and in the future.

It’s easy and fun and will make a real difference.


What kind of fundraising can I do?

Every day of the week people just like you are fundraising for the Cancer Society in varied and wonderful ways.

They are shaving their heads, running marathons, climbing mountains, giving up chocolate, doing bake sales or organising a host of other activities to raise funds.
