With over 360,000 people diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK, demand for our services is greater than ever before. We need to raise more funds to ensure our services can continue to reach more women, men and young adults living with cancer. Use the options below for plenty of ideas on how you can support us and if you have any questions please email the fundraising team.
There are lots of fun and exciting ways you can raise money for Look Good Feel Better, at work, at home and in your local community. From pamper parties to fashion clear-outs, car boot sales to cupcake bakes, we have plenty of ideas to inspire you.
If you don't fancy planning your own fundraising activity, why not take part in one of our organised fundraising events?
Are you a trained beautician or therapist or do you know someone who is? If so why not organise a lovely, relaxing pamper party. Request donations in return for a mini manicure, pedicure, facial or make-over.
Dine at Mine
Bring friends and family together and host a delicious dinner party. It’s a great opportunity to catch up whilst showing off your culinary skills. At the end of the evening ask your guests to make a donation to reward all of your hard work.
Hollywood in your Living Room
Get into those cosy onesies and slippers and snuggle under the duvet to watch anything from rom-com to a horror film. You provide the popcorn and snacks and your friends can make a donation in return for a fun filled evening.
Show off your skills by baking cupcakes, muffins or cookies to sell at work. Different flavours and decoration will create an eye catching bake sale. You’ll find a Cupcake Sweepstake poster in the Fundraising Pack which can be used to raise additional funds.
Brighten up your office by creating a ‘Pink Day’. Encourage colleagues to swap their normal work outfits for something pink! Bright pink nails, wigs, socks and bow ties could all feature. Those wearing pink make a donation, those that don’t, pay a fine!
Guess the Baby
Get colleagues to bring in childhood photos and carefully mount on a wall. Then ask everyone to guess who is who. Those who guess correctly will be entered in to a draw to win a small prize.
Bucket collections are an easy way to raise money. Ask your local supermarket or train station if you can organise a day to collect. The fundraising team will be more than happy to provide you with the necessary authorisation, collection buckets and stickers as well as hints and tips to maximize the opportunity. You can email or call 01372 747 500.
Car Boot Sale
Collect items from friends, family and neighbours. They will be glad to get rid of unwanted junk. Then pick a sunny weekend and attend a local car boot sale. You will be surprised at how much you can raise.
Recruit a committee of friends, family and neighbours to hold a ball. Bringing local businesses and contacts together, you can create a fabulous evening and dance the night away. Or if you already have something planned like a birthday or anniversary party why not turn that into a fundraiser and add in a raffle.
You can become a Look Good Feel Better Friend by making a regular monthly donation (minimum £5).
Over the course of 12 months a £5 donation will fund 12 Confidence Kits or a larger donation of £50 per month could fund one of our Workshops. At the end of the 12 months you will receive a personalised thank you from one of our beneficiaries.
To set up your regular donation please email Caroline
Asking for donations instead of gifts is an inspiring way for family and friends to mark your special occasion. It’s the perfect alternative gift for any celebration you have in mind – wedding, anniversary, retirement or birthday.
In Memory or in lieu of flowers at a funeral
Donating to Look Good Feel Better in tribute to a loved one is a fitting way to honour their memory. We are always grateful to people who choose to support our work by holding a collection at a funeral or memorial service.
This is a new group of volunteers, set up to help raise awareness of Look Good Feel Better.
