Small Change Big Impact is back in September and this year we have activities taking place throughout the month. Our collections will coincide with Blood Cancer Awareness Month and the launch of our new name, new look, new website and our blood cancer awareness campaign - the biggest one in the UK, ever!

From bucket collections to coffee mornings and cake sales to tombolas, our volunteers, supporters, branches and staff are all hoping to raise small change in order to make a big impact to the lives of people affected by blood cancer.

This year’s campaign will also be pivotal in introducing our new name of Bloodwise to the wider public and we have many collections taking place in supermarkets, train stations and on high streets.

From Staffordshire to Northamptonshire and Herefordshire to Lincolnshire, there's a Small Change BIG Impact activity taking place near you. There are 31 in total taking place across the region so please do come and say hello if you’re passing by.

We still have a few collections we'd be most appreciative of help for, so if you can spare a few hours in the locations below, please get in touch with us at midlands@beatingbloodcancers.org.uk or on 0121 415 8076.

Collections in the Midlands:

5 & 6 September Hanley, Stoke on Trent
11 September Birmingham New Street Station
17 September Wolverhampton Train Station
18 September Sheffield Train Station
20 September Nottingham City Centre
26 September Queensgate Shopping Centre, Peterborough
26 September

Hereford Town Centre

 

If you'd like to host your own Small Change BIG Impact fundraiser, we’d love to hear about it! We’ve listed a few simple ideas below to get all your friends, family and colleagues involved:

Schools:
Donate £1 to wear red to school


Offices:
Donate the cost of your daily cup of coffee for a week


Community groups:
Host a coffee morning and cake sale


Families:
Hold a car wash day on your street and ask neighbours to make a donation in return for their car being washed.
