  • The 250 Challenge launched today

    January 15, 2020

    Today is a special day at Cavendish Cancer Care; it’s the launch of the 250 Challenge.
    We’re looking for 250 people to raise £250 each –
    could you be one of them?
    By joining the 250 challenge, your fundraising will fund one of our therapy rooms for an entire year, including the therapy in that room! Sign up today HERE
    Why the 15th January?
    Each year, Cavendish Cancer Care receives enough NHS funding to keep our doors open for about two weeks. To put it simply, if our funding started on the 1st January, it would run out TODAY. So from today, we rely entirely on the generosity of the public – people like you – to keep our charity going to support the more than 1900 families we help each year.
    How does the challenge work?
    The 250 challenge will run for 250 days – starting today. However, your challenge can take as much or as little of this time as is needed (you could even do it in one day!) The challenge will finish at the end of the summer, just in time for us to settle down, to watch Strictly and I’m A Celebrity! You can do anything you like for your 250 Challenge, so whether you’re sporty, artistic, business-savvy, or just want to cut back on chocolate, fundraise your way and make a difference for local people.
    Don’t worry you if nothing above grabs your interest; the important thing is that we all come together and raise £250! That could be one brilliant bake sale, or treasures from the attic sold on ebay.
    Sign up TODAY and make a difference. We’ll send you exciting fundraising ideas, as well as updates on the progress of the challenge. Thank you!
