We rely fully on charitable donations. Many individuals give their time and energy generously to support our work. Without this commitment, we would not be able to undertake the fundraising activities that are so important to achieving our mission.

There are so many ways in which you can raise funds for us. Whether it is a dress down day at your workplace, a quiz night at your local pub, a BBQ with friends, a sports tournament or sponsored walk with classmates, a casino night at college, or another inventive event, you will be helping us bring hope to children with cancer and their families across the UK.

Fundraising doesn’t have to involve lots of planning though. If you’re slimming for summer or planning to run a marathon, ask your friends for sponsorship to support our work. You’ll be surprised how much more motivated you become to reach your goal!

Whatever you do, be assured that you will be touching the lives of children with cancer and their families by helping us continue our advocacy and support work across the country.

Business Supporters

When your business takes up a Gold Ribbon Ball sponsorship package we can offer you a unique opportunity to connect with individuals and other businesses as well as supporting families affected by childhood and adolescent cancer.


CCPA Swishing events combine glamour, environmental protection and frugality to offer an alternative way to enjoy a new wardrobe of clothes you can’t wait to wear!

Swishing is basically an exchange event; everyone brings clothes, shoes, bags even unused makeup to swap. It is a great way to revamp your wardrobe, have fun with friends and help a worth while cause.

For CCPA, Swishing nights are one of our most popular fundraising events, and we host regular events across the year. Last year our clothes swaps and clothing sales raised over £1000 to help support families whose children have cancer.

Clear out Cash in

At CCPA we’re working hard to make our organisation and fundraising eco-friendlier.  That’s why we are promoting fundraising campaigns that aim to reducing, reuse and recycle everything from computer games to old bras!
