Fundraising Materials for Groups

Give out a fundraising tube to friends and family and ask them to fill with twenty pence pieces. A full tube is a donation of over £10, which could help us to buy essential everyday items, such as test tubes, to use in experiments that lead to breakthroughs and save lives.

Materials to consider:

  • Buckets or goblets - you'll need one per collector
  • Bucket seals or goblet seals - one per item plus a few spare
  • T-shirt - one per person
  • Stickers - roughly 10 rolls will be needed for a day of collecting

If you’re holding a collection in a public place, you’ll need to get a permit from the council. If it's on private property, you'll need permission from the landowner. Speak to your CRUK contact for more advice.

Selling items in return for donations e.g. cakes, clothes

Materials to consider

  • Balloons - Depends on how big the space is but generally between 10-50 
  • Plastic banner - You will need roughly one per table
  • Roll of stickers in return for donations - one or two rolls should be enough
