Fundraise

Fundraising 

The Mouth Cancer Walk is designed to increase awareness of mouth cancer, celebrate survivorship, create an opportunity to meet friends, remember lost dear ones, and also have a fun day!

 

We hope participants will be able to gain sponsorship for their walk from family, friends and colleagues to raise funds for the Mouth Cancer Foundation; however, this is not essential as the aim is simply to raise awareness.

 

There will be great prizes for the top fundraisers so start campaigning for sponsorship early! See the Prizes section for further information.

 

We have partnered with Virgin Money Giving so that you can create your own online web page for free, which will allow you to collect sponsorship easily and efficiently. The money you raise is paid directly to the Mouth Cancer Foundation along with Gift Aid.

Online Donations​

You can donate directly to the Mouth Cancer Foundation online at Virgin Money Giving or Just Giving.

Fundraising Tips

Participation in the Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk is about physical exercise, fun and fundraising. And, whilst there is no minimum sponsorship requirement to participate in the event, there also is no maximum.  The Sky really is the limit!

 

At the very beginning we recommend that you set yourself a target of how much you are hoping to raise in sponsorship as this can help you to focus on your fundraising efforts. By following the steps below, you may even find yourself exceeding your fundraising target!

 

  • Think about who you could ask to help you in your fundraising activities and decide when best to set about enlisting their support.

 

  • Make a list of potential sponsors - include relatives, friends, neighbours, sports and social club members, school / college friends, colleagues, business contacts etc - and decide when to approach them.

 

  • Ask your company for support. Many companies will match the amount you raise - it can give them good publicity and it's a tax benefit too.

 

  • Keep accurate records for yourself and your chosen beneficiary. Record all money received on your sponsorship form, together with details of who made the donation and when.

 

  • And don't forget before you start fundraising to ask whether your chosen beneficiary is eligible to receive tax relief on sponsorship donations as this can really boost the amount raised.

 

  • By being original and planning ahead, fundraising can be really rewarding and enjoyable!
