Do your own thing

We are delighted that you plan to fundraise for The Institute of Cancer Research. Every penny you raise will help our scientists and clinicians to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

There are lots of ways to fundraise for the Institute of Cancer Research. From bake sales and afternoon teas to school activities, game-a-thons and Zumba, there are so many different and fun activities you can organise.

How to get started

  • Let us know you’re holding your event by emailing [email protected]
  • Set a date
  • Work out what you’ll need for your event, including materials
  • Find a venue
  • Work out your costs
  • Spread the word – using social media, event posters and word of mouth

After you’ve done your planning and the big day arrives, make sure you tag @ICR_London and #teamICR in any social media around it so we can like, retweet and share your posts.

Sending us your money

After you’ve collected your donations you can send them through to us at:

Development Office
Institute of Cancer Research
123 Old Brompton Road

Please make any cheques payable to ‘The Institute of Cancer Research’. You can also donate the amount online via our Make a donation page or onto your JustGiving page if you have one.

Please do not send cash through the post – as grateful as we are for every donation, it may get lost or stolen in the post.
