There are many different ways that you could support Pelican Cancer Foundation.
We’d love you to fundraise for us!
Why not organise or participate in a fun event to raise funds for Pelican’s work? For some inspiration take a look at some of our fundraisers stories.
In fact, the opportunities for fundraising are endless: golf days, office dressing up/down days, coffee mornings, quiz night, children’s discos, karaoke evenings, barn dances, Christmas fairs, dinner dances, marathons, sponsored walks/runs, sponsored haircuts, or walkathons, dog walks, cricket matches, concert evenings, art exhibitions, fashion shows, bridge evenings, clay pigeon shoots, open gardens, sky-diving – or even taking part in, or organising, an overseas challenge, which could be an experience of a lifetime! Whatever you choose to do, raise money for Pelican whilst having fun. Check out these ideas.
Alternatively, you might want to set yourself a sporting or fitness challenging. You can ask for sponsorship and wear Pelican colours! Check out these challenges.
If organising an event or collecting sponsorship is not for you, you can still help by using platforms to collect donations as you spend.
- Smile Amazon – You use your usual amazon account but via www.smile.amazon.co.uk (not amazon.co.uk). If you select us as your nominated charity, AmazonSmile will automatically donate a portion of the eligible purchases to us, at no cost or hassle to you.
- Give as you Live – a free and easy way to raise money for your favourite charity, just by shopping online. Once you’ve signed up, you can browse the website for the store you want to shop with and click ‘shop & raise’ to go to their website, then continue to shop as normal – www.giveasyoulive.com/charity/pelicancancer
- eBay – You can choose to sell for charity or make a donation – www.charity.ebay.co.uk/charity/Pelican-Cancer-Foundation/26450
Auction or raffle prizes – we are always on the look-out for auction and raffle prizes to raise funds at the small number of events Pelican holds each year. This could be in the form of luxury goods, vouchers, hampers, wine, holidays, high-quality toiletries, celebrity memorabilia, tickets to sporting events or concerts … whatever may make an appealing auction prize. We are very grateful to all our supporters who provide so much help and support in kind.
Tell us your ideas. Let us what you’re up to – we can profile your event on Pelican’s website and in our supporter e-bulletin and/or newsletter.
