December Fundraising: Highlighting our community

2023 has been full of Snow Much Love from our fundraisers! Check out some of the things our community did to fundraise for those living with leukaemia...

As the year comes to a close, it is an honor to wrap up by reflecting on some of the people who have helped us generate funds in the final month of 2023, so that we can continue providing help and resources to those living with leukaemia. December was a month of brilliantly diverse fundraising, as well as the launch of our Snow Much Love Winter Appeal, where we have been lucky enough to see our community come together even in these tough times to give to those who are in need. It has been wonderful reading the reasons for each donation, and seeing how our work as a charity provides a vessel to helping others who are in a similar situation to you and /or keeping the memory of your loved one alive.

A huge thank you and well done to every single fundraiser of 2023, whether you ran a marathon, baked a cake, or held a birthday fundraiser. We are so grateful for your continued support; check out some of the awesome December fundraisers below, and we cannot wait to see all the creative ways you will fundraise in 2024!
