Join us in May for a Perfect Picnic

Leukaemia Care, Charity

  • Perfect Picnic

From 18th-31st May, we’re urging everyone across the country to join us for a Perfect Picnic to help support people affected by blood cancer.

Our Perfect Picnic campaign is a new fundraising initiative for 2015, which asks people to gather friends, family and colleagues and hold a picnic to help us continue our vital work.

The idea behind the campaign is to get people involved in a quintessential British tradition and throw a picnic somewhere perfect to them. It could be a buffet lunch one Friday afternoon at work, a lazy Sunday in the park with the girls or on a blanket with a loved on the beach.

Raising money from the event is easy; picnickers simply ask their guests to give what they can. Every donation will help Leukaemia CARE’s mission to provide support to everyone affected by blood cancer.

Fundraising Manager at Leukaemia CARE, Kevin Hateley, said: “Everyone loves a picnic and there couldn’t be an easier way to make a difference. Simply gather together family, friends or colleagues, bring along some tasty treats and tuck in!

“The campaign is in its maiden year and we really hope people make the most of the weekends and Bank Holiday to hold a picnic in aid of Leukaemia CARE. If the Great British weather tries to scupper your plans, you can still hold it indoors!”

Everyone who signs up will be able to download their own Perfect Picnic pack which includes tasty recipes, posters, bunting, and sponsor forms to help ensure their Perfect Picnic is a success.

All money raised will help to fund our services including the 24-hour CARE Line, a specialist nurse, nationwide support groups and a one-to-one buddy service, which all help to ensure that people living with blood cancer have the support they need every step of the way.
