Fundraising ideas

From quizzes to sporting challenges, explore a variety of fundraising activities to give you inspiration.

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.

Set up a fundraiser

Take on a sporting challenge

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

   1. Choose to walk, run or cycle

   2. Pick a distance

   3. Decide on a date and destination

   4. 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.

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.


Water week

Could you drink only water and give up all other beverages for a week? If you are willing to exchange that morning cuppa or evening beer for a cool glass of water, then this is the challenge for you.

Drinking more water can help to:

   - increase energy levels

   - improve brain function

   - flush out toxins

   - aid weight loss

Set up a fundraising page and ask for friends and family to sponsor you.

Head shave

If you’re planning to make this bold statement, make sure you give your family and friends enough notice beforehand to really get behind you.


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