Sunita, a woman with ovarian cancer

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

This March, find out how you can make a difference by raising funds and awareness for women with ovarian cancer.

The pandemic has made diagnosing ovarian cancer even harder. When it’s diagnosed early, 9 out of 10 women will survive – and now they need your help more than ever. Join in this March to raise much-needed funds and awareness.

The money you raise will:

  • train GPs to spot ovarian cancer  
  • spread the word about the symptoms everyone should know  
  • support even more women with ovarian cancer  

Get involved

Do your own thing

You can raise awareness and funds in your own way for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

  • Set up a Facebook fundraiser to ask for donations to Target Ovarian Cancer – you could do this instead of receiving birthday presents or to celebrate other special occasions. 
  • Host a virtual coffee morning, quiz night, book group or party! Use our guides for Skype [PDF], Zoom [PDF] or Facebook Messenger [PDF] to get started and invite your friends and family to join in.
  • Take on a sponsored head shave.
  • Offer a virtual class of your favourite hobby or skill, such as baking, yoga, piano, or a foreign language taster! 
  • Livestream a virtual performance of singing, dancing or stand-up comedy using Facebook, YouTube or Twitch. Did you know, you can livestream directly to your JustGiving page, making it even easier for people to support you?
  • Grab a gavel and host an online auction. If you choose eBay, the funds will come automatically to us if you select us as your chosen charity.
  • Make your run matter – find a run near you and explore how to get involved.
  • If you're looking for further ideas, get inspiration from our fundraising guide

If you’ve got your own ideas, let us know what you’re doing and order your fundraising materials. Our fundraising team would love to support you whatever your plans.
