Join the Fight – It’s Stand up to Cancer Day

Cancer needs to be shown who’s boss. We just don’t want it around and so it’s time to raise funds to help send cancer packing. Every year, cancer treatments get better and more lives are being saved. But there’s still a long way to go before cancer is banished forever. This all takes money, but it’s certainly money well spent, so why not get funding raising and do your bit to help kick cancer’s butt? Every single penny donated goes towards groundbreaking scientific research in the fight against cancer.

To date, the campaign has raised over 38 million pounds. This has funded 35 groundbreaking trials that have benefited more than 8000 cancer patients.

How you can help

Want to get involved? Great! There are plenty of ways you can join in and have some fun at the same time! You can order a fundraising pack from the Stand Up To Cancer website. You really can do anything you like to raise money so use your imagination. You can do a sponsored sky dive or sit in a bath of beans, it doesn’t matter what you do, as long you’re fund raising!

Stand Up To Cancer have two great suggestions for your fund raising which they’ve called Get Gaming and Get Baking.

Get Gaming

Take on a gaming challenge and get your mates involved. You could host an endurance gaming marathon, have forfeits for game losers, or insist everyone play in fancy dress. Why not stream your gaming over social media and see if you can encourage others to donate to this worthy cause?

Get Baking

Are you happier in the kitchen than in front of a games console? Then your job is to get baking. Get  your friends, family or work colleagues on board and set to creating your star bakes to sell and raise money.

Or simply make a donation

If you’re short of time or inspiration, don’t feel bad, you can simply make a donation and it’s so easy to do. You can donate easily online via credit card or Paypal, or even by text. You’ll find all the details of how to do this on the Stand Up To Cancer website. We’ll be doing our bit, and we really hope you will too!
