    You’re Awesome!

    You’re probably here because you’re thinking about fundraising for Cavendish. So first of all, we want to say THANK YOU! Cavendish Cancer Care is a local Sheffield cancer charity that relies on the generosity and commitment of its friends and supporters. We could not keep on helping people without the invaluable efforts of volunteers, supporters and friends.

    Every person like you who gets involved makes a real difference to Cavendish Cancer Care and people living with cancer. Every £27 you fundraise can fund an hour of therapy at our centre – so it really does add up.

    There’s a fundraiser out there to suit every personality – we’ve seen everything from extreme dodgems and 24hr video gaming marathons, to cake sales and hill trekking. If you’re more of an indoors person, you can make a big difference with a Facebook fundraiser or a clearout on eBay. So whether you’re a runner, a baker, a party-maker, or something else, fundraise your way and make a big difference for local people.

    The 250 Challenge

    We need 250 people to raise £250 – could you be one of them?

    The 250 challenge is our new challenge for 2020. It will run for 250 days, however, it can take as much or as little of this time as is needed. The challenge will finish at the end of the summer, in time for us to settle down and watch Strictly and I’m A Celebrity!

    The challenge launched on January 15th. This date is significant for us, as if the money we receive via government funding started on New Year’s Day, it would run out by the 14th. From this point onwards, we rely on the generosity of the local community and private funders to keep our doors open for the 1,900 families that will turn to us for help in 2020.
