Have a great time for a great cause!
What better way to celebrate Yorkshire Day this year than by helping raise funds for Yorkshire’s very own cancer charity? Our region has some of the lowest cancer survival rates in the UK, but with your help we can change this.
We want you to get wacky with your wellies – wang them, wear them, paint them or plant them! Every penny raised will go into funding research and saving lives right here in Yorkshire.
So, come on, help us give cancer the boot!

What your donations allow us to do
Ensure people in Yorkshire understand how to spot the signs and symptoms of cancer so they seek medical help at the earliest possible stage, when the cancer is often easier to treat.
Increase participation in screening so more people are diagnosed early.
We bring more clinical trials to the region so we can ensure everyone has access to pioneering treatments.
We work in local communities to help people reduce their risk of cancer by living healthy lives.
Fund practical, patient-led research and services that will improve the treatment and diagnosis of cancer across Yorkshire.
