Fundraise in memory

There are so many ways to fundraise in memory of someone you love, from hosting a coffee morning, quiz or raffle, to taking part in a running or walking event.

Perhaps you want to mark a birthday, anniversary or special occasion, or just bring people together to remember someone special.

However you choose to honour your loved one’s memory, we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Fundraise your way

You can run a marathon, host a music event or organise a quiz in memory of your loved one too. Why not make your fundraising idea as unique as them, by choosing a challenge or event that you know they would have loved?

It’s a fun and thoughtful way to mark birthdays, special occasions, anniversaries, and bring people together to remember someone special.

Our team will be on hand to help you celebrate their memory & raise funds that will help other local people affected by cancer or bereavement.
