How we raise money

Everything we do to support local cancer patients relies on our wonderful supporters who raise vital funds for us.

The good news is that the only limit to what you can do to raise money is your imagination.  You can take part in one of our own events such as our Take on the Tower Abseil, Belvoir Walk and Slieve Donard Challenge, or get your family and friends together to organise your own fundraising event at home.  You can also support us when you're at work by taking us on as your charity partner, taking on one of our events as a team, or by holding your own event with colleagues.

To give you some inspiration, take a look at our Be Inspired section below and feel free to contact our fundraising team at any time if you have a fundraising idea that we can support you with.
