Fundraising Events

A great way to support the work that we do is to get involved in one of our events. From marathons and cycle rides, to formal balls, sky dives, and pub quizzes, we aim to have something for everyone’s taste. A list of our upcoming events follows below. If you would like to get involved in any of our events, please get in touch.

Alternatively, if you’d like to host your own event on our behalf please let us know. We’d love for you to fundraise for us, so please get in touch via [email protected].

Ongoing Appeals

 

Give as You Live – Ongoing

Give your online shopping a philanthropic twist. Findacure have signed up to Give As You Live, a shopping and price comparison website that is home to thousands of major retailers (including Amazon, Sainsbury’s and John Lewis). For every purchase you make, a percentage will be donated back to Findacure! Make your account today.

Stamp Appeal – Ongoing

Fundraising for a great cause couldn’t be much simpler! You can now collect used stamps to raise money for Findacure. All you need to do is collect stamps from your post, leaving a border of 4-10mm of envelope, and pass them onto us at our next event. Alternatively, you can post them to: 66 Devonshire Road, Cambridge, CB1 2BL. As this method works best when collected in bulk, we’d really appreciate it if you could encourage your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.

Past Fundraising Events

Gala Dinner

On Friday 23rd September 2016, we hosted our first ever Gala Dinner in celebration of our fourth anniversary as a registered charity. Over 60 people joined us to drink, dine and dance the night away. The night included speeches from Co-Founder and Chairman, Nick Sireau, decorated Winter Paralympian Jade Etherington, live music from The Jazz Professors, a luxury raffle draw, and a casino. Overall, the evening was a great success, raising just under £5000! You can find out more in our blog.

In total, nine courageous individuals threw themselves out of plane at 13,000 in raising money for rare diseases. Our team were delighted with their once in a life-time experience and, between them, raised an impressive £4,000! Check out our photos and blog to find out more.
