Stay safe whilst fundraising

The health and safety of all of our supporters is our number one priority. Due to the current challenges posed by COVID-19 we want to make sure that you're keeping safe whilst planning your event. We have stopped all of our door-to-door fundraising activity, as well as fundraising in private sites. All fundraising activity undertaken by members of the public must adhere to government guidelines around events and social distancing. 

Get your bake on

  • £36 could buy a set of sensory balls with exciting textures and eye-catching colours to stimulate children’s senses.
  • £245 could cover the cost of one week’s stay in our family accommodation so parents can stay close by while their child is in hospital.
  • £372 could cover the cost of a day’s valuable research time for one of our world-leading scientists to try and make the next breakthrough.

Please download and use our Bake it Better fundraising materials, including branded bunting, a special thank-you certificate, sweepstake and price labels for all your baked goodies.
