All our services are provided completely free of charge, but in order to do this, we need to raise over £850,000 every year, from scratch. This is where you come in. We welcome anyone wishing to do something unusual, challenging, or whacky to raise money for our charity – the possibilities are endless!

Discover the many ways in which you can help us raise the funds needed to enable quality of life while living with cancer.

Fundraising Groups

Our fantastic fundraising groups help raise vital funds to allow us to enable quality of life while living with cancer. We rely on them to help organise fundraising events and activities within their local community. Our groups act as ambassadors, helping to spread the word about the work of HRCC and encouraging and supporting local people, clubs and organisations to fundraise for us too.
