Fundraising at School

Many families across Merseyside, Cheshire and beyond are affected by cancer. Give your students and staff the opportunity to make a real difference to cancer patients and their loved ones by arranging school, college and university charity fundraising events for Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

If you would like to find out more about how your school, college or university can support Clatterbridge, please contact us!

How to get involved

There are so many ways to contribute to the vital work we do. If you’re looking for charity fundraising ideas for schools, colleges or universities, simply download our A-Z of Fundraising. From dress-down or dress-up days, to bake sales, to raffles, there are plenty of fun ways to get involved. You could even create and sell a school cookbook or perhaps your teachers and older students would love the chance to take part in our Glow Green Night Walk (16+) or our Go Green days for younger children.

Whichever school charity ideas you decide on, your students and staff will have the chance to raise money, support local people with cancer – and have a great time in the process! We’re here to support you every step of the way too. Our fundraising packs are full of ideas, as well as tips for planning and promoting your event and information on how to send in your donations.

Let's Go Green for Clatterbridge!

To mark World Cancer Day in February each year, could you support Clatterbridge at school or at your workplace and organise your own green fundraising? You could wear green, hold a green back sale, or even a green colour run!

Whatever you decide to do, we’d love it if you could get involved and raise vital funds for your local cancer centre.

Supporting young people with cancer

We are dedicated to supporting the crucial work of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre for people young and old.

Just one of the ways you will make a difference is by enabling us to fund life-changing activities for young people.

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can turn anyone’s life upside down, but this disruption is perhaps felt most keenly amongst young people, who can be isolated by their diagnosis. Often their friends don’t understand what they are going through and it’s a time of life when feeling ‘different’ can have a huge effect. 

Thanks to your support, Clatterbridge Cancer Charity was able to fully fund the creation of a dedicated Teenage & Young Adult Unit at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, along with ongoing support. 

The Charity is delighted to fund a weekly lunch club and a series of opportunities and events through the year for young people to help offer eachother social and emotional support; which are vital to their development through diagnosis, treatment and beyond. 

From football matches, to zoo trips, spa days and even participating in a podcast with FACT Liverpool, each event is tailored to provide young people with various fun and engaging activities and a safe space to explore their diagnosis alongside other young people who have gone through a similar experience to them.

It’s thanks to your support that we can do this.
