Getting married or having a civil partnership? Celebrating a significant anniversary? Why not ask for a donation to the Trust and get people to support young people in recovery from cancer instead of buying gifts. You can set up ‘celebration’ fundraising pages on websites like JustGiving or you could do it through Facebook Fundraisers.
Doing talks about the Trust in your community introduces a new audience who might never otherwise have heard of our work and impact. Talks can raise money on the night, open doors to new fundraisers/donors and raise awareness of how the Trust could support young people treated for cancer known to members of the audience. Download our talks guide for everything you need for talking or presenting on behalf of the Trust.

"So many people are touched by cancer, people are keen to support financially. To find a charity which offers something so positive to young people really inspired us."
Camilla and Adam Johnson raised almost £4,000 for the Trust when they got dressed up as Santa for the Lewes to Newhaven Raft Race. The race happens each year on the River Ouse in East Sussex and involves spectators throwing eggs and flour at a whole host of novelty floats and their crew.Find out more about the trips Support the Trust
