New year, New fundraising! Take a look at some of the incredibly creative ways you can fundraise in support of those living with leukaemia. Let's do more this 2024!

A new year means a new opportunity to get out there and do more for your community, and those who are in need of support. Fundraisers are not only a great way of raising much needed funds, but also the perfect opportunity to get out there, gather your community together, and enjoy good old fashioned human interaction! The options are endless when it comes to fundraising, you can take part in one of our many events, or get creative and hold a bespoke fundraiser – there is something for everyone!

Check out our community inspiration story below, alongside some great fundraising ideas for 2024 and beyond!

 

Amanda Dobie takes on Kiltwalk this April!

Amanda has always wanted to do the Kiltwalk walk to help a good cause, little did she know when she would eventually take part it would be for a more personal reason than she had anticipated. Amanda lost her dad to Blood Cancer, and her recent journey to losing weight pushed her to take the plunge and sign up. Coincidentally, the Kiltwalk lands on Amanda’s birthday, which she took as her sign that this is exactly the time for her to take on the walk in honor of her dad, and in support of the many people living with blood cancer.

 

FUNdraising ideas to inspire your 2024!

You may or may not know that you can turn almost ANYTHING into a fundraiser. Whether you host a class to share a skill, bake some sweet treats for the locals, or host a charity football match. Check out 5 ways you can put the FUN in fundraising below…

  • Record breaker

    Want to claim your way to fame? Why not try and break a World Record? Or even set your own? Think outside the box or put your skills to use, it’s up to you, just get people to sponsor you!

  • New habits

    Looking to kick a nasty old habit this 2024? Why not do this whilst raising funds for leukaemia! Cut down on how much sugar you eat, quit smoking, or take that 30 minute daily walk you’ve been putting off for years. Whatever the habit, motivate your way to victory by getting people to sponsor you along the way.

  • Quiz night

    Everyone loves a quiz night. Host one in your local pub, your house, or even your student’s union if you’re a student. All you have to do is gather some questions and charge an entry fee! You can download our LC Quiz pack here for more tips and tricks ready for your night of quizardry!

  • Variety show

    Put your talents on display and host your own local variety show! Invite local acts and encourage amateurs to showcase their budding talent. Sell tickets to your event and even provide snacks and drinks to give your fundraising a little boost.
