Fundraising events

Taking part in a fundraising event, or organising one yourself, can be a great way of raising money to support our work while also helping to raise awareness of the importance of radiotherapy as a cancer treatment. Why not get fit by Running for Radiotherapy?

On Sunday 15th July 2018, Action Radiotherapy and ARCNet are taking part in the British 10k charity run, Westminster. The course is a special one and you’ll get to weave your way through the very heart of London, running along the Embankment, passing by Big Ben, cruising next to Trafalgar Square, and darting past Westminster Abbey. It’s always great fun and we get loads of support and shout outs from the crowd. It’s also a brilliant opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the charity.  Whether you’ve been looking for a reason to get a bit fitter, or are already an experienced runner, it’s a great event to take part in. If you’d like to join us, there is a registration fee, but if you are able to raise over £50 for Action Radiotherapy, we will provide you with your very own “running for radiotherapy” vest to wear at the event, and if you raise over £200, we will also reimburse your registration fee*. We can send you lots of tips and ideas to help prepare. If you do decide to register, please enter as an individual. Once registered, please contact us. We will let you know where the meeting place is so you can meet the team, collect your vest and join us – or take it at your own pace.

There’s always a support group cheering us on with the Action Radiotherapy banners which is a great added boost.  If you’re not keen on running, we welcome new supporters to come spend the day with us and watch the team run! And if you’d like to donate, you’re more than welcome to do so here.

If you would like further information about the British 10k charity run, please contact Action Radiotherapy via email info@actionradiotherapy.org

There are also other great ways to raise funds. In 2016 Barclaycard staff, their family and friends took part in a charity football match at Middlesborough Football Club. Alongside Barclaycard’s generous corporate donation, they raised a fantastic £1,188 for Action Radiotherapy. The Barclaycard team chose Action Radiotherapy because we recently supported one of their customer’s family members during a difficult time. If you know someone who could do with our support, please contact us at info@actionradiotherapy.org and we’ll do our best to help.
