Thank you for considering organising a fundraising initiative for 40tude.  In doing so, not only will you be raising funds but by involving your friends, family and colleagues, you’ll be raising vital awareness of colon cancer, and the importance of getting screened for this preventable type of cancer. 

At the same time you’ll be helping to raise awareness of 40tude and the work we’re doing in supporting leading-edge research already transforming the early detection of colon cancer, saving lives.

Here are some ideas as to how you can help us:

Organising a fundraising event for 40tude

Current Covid restrictions might make getting people together in person difficult right now but you could still organise a virtual event - you might find people are even more willing to join you as they have less in their diaries!  A few ideas:

  • Quiz night
  • A night at the races – organise a virtual dog/horse race night
  • Birthday donations: ask that your friends make a donation to 40tude in the place of a present
  • Give up something you love and donate the usual cost to 40tude or ask people to sponsor you to do so
How to make your event a great success 
  • Check if you need a licence - eg. to play live or recorded music, or to sell alcohol
  • Assess any health and safety considerations, for example any risks posed by your event to people, property and your local environment.  Identify, implement and ensure you document prior to the event how you can minimise or control any risks
  • Check if you need to take out insurance for your event / venue / personal challenge. Any events or activities organised by individuals are not covered under 40tude's insurance policy, so it is important that you take out your own cover to protect you
  • Let us know, so we can help to promote your event
  • Contact Kate for 40tude’s logo files to use in your publicity materials
  • Send us photos before and after the event (and if possible during it!) that we can share on our channels
Whatever you choose to do, it’s simple to set up a fundraising page for 40tude that can be easily shared with your friends, family and colleagues.  Here's how
