Fundraise for us

We know that it’s a difficult time to fundraise right now, but there is still plenty you can do to raise funds for life-saving ovarian cancer research.

  • Host a coffee morning or tea party

    Get your friends ‘round for a coffee, biscuits and a chat. Ask everyone to make a donation to attend, and why not pop a collection box on the table too? We’ll also send you decorations and cake labels!

    Coffee and notebook
  • Pub Quiz

    Ask your local landlord if they will let you host a pub quiz and ask guests for a donation to take part. Gather together some prizes and let the games begin!

  • Give in celebration

    Are you getting married or do you have a big birthday or anniversary coming up? Why not ask friends and family to make a donation to Ovarian Cancer Action in lieu of a gift? We can also provide wedding favours and pin badges for an extra touch on your special day.

  • Charity Golf Day

    Are you a member of a golf club? Holding an event with club members is a fantastic way to raise money. If you’re holding a post-game dinner, why not ask for donations to attend, and include a raffle or auction?

  • Ready Steady Cook

    A twist on the classic dinner party! Invite your friends over and ask them to each bring a different ingredient, but don’t let them tell you what they’re bringing. Prepare your guests a dish with all the ingredients they have brought, and ask them to donate what they think the meal was worth!

  • Bake sale

    These are always very popular at work! Ask colleagues to bring a cake or sweet treat, and we’ll send you a collection box for donations.

  • Dress down day

    This is one of the easiest ways to fundraise in your workplace. Simply ask everyone to make a donation to come into work in their favourite comfy clothes.

  • Sponsored Silence Sweepstake

    Ask your colleagues to sponsor you for two hours…or more! Get them to donate extra to guess how long you can last. Why not ask the office chatterbox to join you – you might get more donations!
