Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research has so many fantastic volunteer supporters in Wales raising money through all kinds of different activities. This month we have a supporter walking the length of Offa’s Dyke Path (a huge 21 day challenge!), two dinners, a quiz night, a memorial bash, a bingo night, a back wax and beard shave, coffee mornings and much more! We really appreciate the support and commitment of all of our volunteers who are helping us to beat blood cancers.

I love to hear about the events and activities going on and am here to help out in any way I can. Do you have a great idea that you just haven’t had chance to get off the ground yet? Get in touch and we can have a chat.

Here are a few ideas of easy events and activities that you could run to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research:-

Silver Smarties
Did you know that a Smarties tube can hold £10.00 in 20p pieces? I didn’t either until recently. What a perfect excuse to eat lots of Smarties…  Could you work with your local high school, college, Brownies or Scouts and run a silver Smarties Challenge? Buy packs of Smarties (either wholesale or when they are on offer in the supermarket) and hand them out to the children. Ask them to fill them with 20p pieces once they’ve eaten the Smarties and return them by a specific date. They could earn the 20p’s from family by doing chores around the house or saving their pocket money or even ask their whole family to get involved and contribute.

Do you or any of your family have links with a local drama club or society? How about asking the club to put on a play with profits from the tickets coming to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research? 

Christmas Stalls
Is there a Christmas Fair in your local area where you could have a Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research stall? We can provide you with information leaflets and items you can sell to raise money. Or could you contact the organisers to ask if Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research can be the benefitting charity of the fair? For those of you who are up for a bigger challenge, you could even organise your own fair. If this is something you would like to do, I can help you to plan it. Just get in touch.

I look forward to hearing your ideas!
