Whether you’re planning a tea party, a talent show or a triathlon, here are some top tips to help you raise more money while keeping your fundraising fun-filled and stress-free.

Be confident
You don’t need to feel guilty about asking people to support you. Most people have been affected by cancer in some way and you’ll be giving them a chance to help. Your passion will be a reminder of what a brilliant cause Cancer Research UK is.

Raise money online
Customise your online fundraising page in your Participant Zone – it ’s the easiest way for friends, family and colleagues to support you. Share your story and your reasons for wanting to raise money to beat cancer. The more effort you put into your page by adding a video, photo or a powerful message, the more people will want to support you.

Don’t forget to share the link to your Relay donation page with your friends and family by email, Facebook and Twitter! It may sound obvious, but it’s as easy as that… sit back and watch the cash roll in!
Make it FUN!
The internet is full of incredible and ingenious ideas for fundraising. Don’t be afraid to try something different.

We’ve pinned lots of ideas for you at or visit the Cancer Research UK website for a whole A – Z list.

And finally… let us know what you’re up to! We’d love to publicise your events on our Facebook page and show off  some photos of your fundraising activities at our team meetings.
