Fundraising ideas

Donate your birthday

Make your birthday extra special this year by helping to save lives in Yorkshire. Set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook and select Yorkshire Cancer Research as your chosen charity.

If you would like to still fundraise but don’t have Facebook, then you can set up a JustGiving page and share it with your friends and family.

Take on a sporting challenge

Walk, run, swim or cycle. The choice is yours!

  • Choose to walk, run or cycle
  • Pick a distance
  • Decide on a date and destination
  • Grab your trainers or helmet and start ticking off those miles.

Set up a fundraising page and let your friends and family know what you are up to. This could be via Facebook Fundraiser or JustGiving.

Host an afternoon tea

Whether you invite a few friends for a cuppa or organise an event in your local community, coffee mornings and afternoon teas are always a big hit.

Make sure you have a few donation tins handy, or set up a fundraising page so people can donate online.

Organise a quiz

Put your friends and family's general knowledge to the test by hosting your own quiz.

This fundraiser works great virtually, as platforms such as Zoom can host larger groups of people at the same time.

Set up a fundraising page and ask for a donation entry to the quiz.

Shave your head

Head shaves have long been a popular way to fundraise, as you'll be sure to get plenty of support from your loved ones.

Don't forget those all-important before and after photos!
