Fundraising at work

No matter the size of your team or the type of work that you do, explore our ideas for raising funds and awareness at work.

Organising a fundraising event in the workplace can be a wonderful way to bring your colleagues together and boost morale while also benefiting a worthy cause. You'll not only be raising funds to support our work but you'll also be helping to spread the word so that more women can recognise the symptoms and be diagnosed earlier. 

Whether one of these fundraising ideas takes your fancy or you're not quite sure what to do, we're here to help –  call the team on 020 7923 5474 or email us: fundraising@targetovariancancer.org.uk.
