Ever thought about holding your own community event? A pub quiz? Games night? Coffee morning?

Is adrenaline the only thing that gets you out of bed in the morning? Or are you’re more of a tea-and-biscuits-by-the-radiator-with-a-good-book type person? Well, we’ve got news for you…We want you all!

We love hearing about your wonderful fundraising ideas in support of Dragonfly Cancer Trust. Whatever you have planned, we’ll be here to support you every step of the way.

Fundraising Ideas

Organise an event

From quizzes and bake sales to dress down days, there are endless ways to get people involved. Why not share your passion for fitness by leading a workout session? Why not host a barbeque or a bag-pack, set up a car wash for the day, arrange a darts tournament or a garden party? These can be a great way to get your local community involved in fundraising and raise the profile of Dragonfly Cancer Trust. There is no wrong answer. Just make sure it’s fun.


Take on a Challenge

Go big or go home. Sometimes we need to set ourselves a challenge to really see what we’re made of. For all you adventurers and thrill seekers, this might be for you. Do something brave. Kick a bad habit for 24 hours. Shave your head. Visit our Events page for challenge events near you, or do your own thing. We’ll be here to support you every step of the way.


Tins & Badges

You can also support our work with young cancer patients by helping to distribute our collection tins and dragonfly pin badges. Do you know of a place where we could place a collection tin or box of badges? Some happy couples even choose to use our pin badges as wedding favours on their big day in the knowledge they are helping make dreams come true for a young person somewhere.


Fundraising Groups

Get together with friends, or appeal within your local community to form a fundraising group. Together you can raise the profile of Dragonfly Cancer Trust and put your fabulous fundraising ideas into action.

You don’t need to be a fundraising guru, just passionate about making a difference.


Online Fundraisers

Remember us on your birthday or next special occasion! If you use Facebook, you can start a fundraiser where your family and friends can make a donation to Dragonfly Cancer Trust. Alternatively, set up a JustGiving account so that friends and family can start donating to your cause 24/7, making it quick and easy to collect funds for your next event.
