Fundraising ideas to fire your imagination:

Tuck Shop

Everyone has fond memories of the tuck shop at school, so why not recreate it? Order some sweets, chocolate and crisps in bulk (try somewhere like Cash & Carry for discounts) and sell these to your colleagues for a week – or until you run out!

Dress Down Day

This one works best if your office has a strict dress code and people would love to be more casual for a day. Ask everyone who dresses down to give a small donation.

Foreign Coin Exchange

Let all of your colleagues know that you’ll be collecting foreign coins up to give the money to charity. If they’ve got any currency from past holidays, they can give it to you and you’ll exchange it back into pounds to add to the fundraising total.

Get Cycling

Put the call out for someone to bring an exercise bike into the office and see how long it takes you and your colleagues to cycle the equivalent distance of somewhere in the local area. Those who don’t fancy getting sweaty in the office can enjoy watching and donating.

Doughnut Day

Did you know that Krispy Kreme sell doughnuts at a discounted price if they’re going to be resold at a charity event? Get your hands on some and sell them to your office colleagues at the recommended retail price. You can donate the difference.

Raising vital funds for a new Endoscopy Unit in Burnley

We’re a local charity – help us reach our fundraising target and help save lives!


CARES is a local charity committed to promoting the early assessment and rapid diagnosis of Cancer in the East Lancashire region.

The charity’s mission is to raise £525,000 for an additional Endoscopy Suite for the local community, enabling over 10,000 extra procedures to be undertaken each year.

Introduction of the new unit will reduce waiting times, help diagnose people more quickly and save lives!

In addition to raising funds, the charity is focussed on raising awareness about early symptoms of Cancer in the workplace, arming local employers and their employees with the information they need to spot the signs at an early stage and seek medical help early.
