How we fundraise

An incredible 98% of our income comes from voluntary donations from supporters who bake, swim, cycle, play a raffle, donate or fundraise their own way to help us to be right there for everyone living with cancer.

We want to be transparent in everything we do which is why we are open about how we raise and spend our money. We’re also a registered member of the Fundraising Regulator and use the Fundraising Regulator Code of Fundraising Practice in all our fundraising activities.

We are dedicated to supporting millions of people living with cancer every year and we couldn’t do this without the amazing help from our supporters.
