Schools and University Fundraising

There are many ways your school or University can help raise money for Orchid. Below are a few popular ideas to raise some life changing cash, however if you have some creative fundraising up your sleeve, let us know and we can support you every step of the way!

Schools Fundraising Pack

We are pleased to be launching our brand new ‘Your Privates’ Schools Fundraising pack which will provide a plethora of fun and innovative ideas for you and your students to get involved with. We can also support you with your testicular cancer information sessions by providing information and educational resources alongside fundraising materials.

 

 Get the ball rolling

Please email Amy at Orchid HQ on events@orchid-cancer.org.uk or call 0203 745 7316 and let her know how many ping pong balls you require.

Set a time frame for how long your students have to swap their items (there’s no set time, this is completely up to you to decide.)

Only ask friends or family, don’t ask a stranger to swap!

All items being swapped should be in good repair.

 

 Fundraising ideas

Here are some other popular ideas to raise some life changing cash:

  • Support Male Cancer Awareness Week and dress in blue during 3rd-9th April 2017
  • Plan an Easter egg hunt or decorate an egg competition
  • Arrange a sponsored silence
  • Plan a battle of the bands or show off your hidden skills in a talent show
  • Persuade teachers to take on a challenge
  • School sleep in (a sponsored sleepover at school)
  • Organise a charity concert

 School Assembly

If your school chooses to support us and would like an assembly, a member of the Orchid Team or an Orchid Ambassador would love to come and raise awareness . Alternatively, we have videos, presentations and materials that we can provide you with to create your own Orchid Assembly. Please email events@orchid-cancer.org.uk for more information.
