Organise an event
Each year we rely on people supporting our work with fundraising events. This support enables us to carry on providing our services free of charge at a time when those affected by cancer need it the most. Events large and small not only raise valuable funds but help spread the word about Cavendish Cancer Care services. This help enables us to “Pass the care on”.
A black tie ball or themed night, such as our Chinese New Year Celebration, is a fantastic way to raise money for us. We would recommend that you do not attempt this one on your own, but it is a great way of getting friends together to organise a evening that you will all enjoy.
Cavendish Cancer Care has been lucky enough to work with Sheffield International Venues (Ponds Forge) to host an indoor duck race on a grand scale. But, like all good things, it is not size that counts it’s actually doing it. If you wanted to stage your own duck race in a local venue on a smaller scale, we can certainly lend you some ducks.
Come dine with me
Why not have a fantasic night with your friends and host a Cavendish dinner party. Well fed and watered friends would be more than happy to make a donation, especially at the end of the evening. We would be happy to provide you with literature posters for the evening. The Cavendish logo is always avaiable to those who do events for us and branding a menu is a great way of letting people know who you are supporting.
The students from Sheffield Hallam University are among many people who have organised a fashion show on our behalf. This one, displaying young local designers, not only raised funds for Cavendish Cancer Care but also spread the message of our services to young people and those new to the region.
A Garden Party is a fantastic way of getting together in the sunshine and having some fun while fundraising.
Perhaps you are involved with a group that would enjoy a ladies lunch or you know enough friends who are keen to get together. A ladies lunch is an informal way of ladies socialising and, before you know it, you have raised much needed funds for Cavendish Cancer Care. Many hotels and banqueting establishments are quiet at lunchtime and there are some great deals to be found.
