Fundraise

We are very grateful for the many hours our supporters dedicate to raising funds for Bright Red.

Every penny helps us fight blood cancer for a brighter future.

We rely entirely on our supporters raising funds on our behalf. We would not be able to invest in improving patient care, staff development and research without the fantastic support we receive.

Many of our supporters have a direct understanding of blood cancers and the difficulties patients can face. Often it is the patients and families we support who choose to fundraise for Bright Red. It’s an extremely kind gesture and often our supporters find fundraising a positive, therapeutic experience.

How to help

  • Organise an event to raise funds
  • Take part in a Bright Red event
  • Raise sponsorship – we are registered on JustGiving, Virgin Money Giving, BT My Donate and Facebook Fundraisers for raising sponsorship online, and we also have our downloadable sponsor form for any offline sponsorship.
  • Raise awareness – put us forward for a speaking slot in your local club or group, or you could buy a Bright Red t-shirt or hoodie through our Bright Red Store to wear to show our logo!
  • Get your workplace involved through Corporate Fundraising. Does your workplace have a charity of the year scheme? Nominate Bright Red as a chosen charity.
  • Regular Giving – regular donors are the backbone of the charity, and it’s thanks to our regular donors that we have been able to do as much as we have. You can set up a direct debit or standing order to donate regularly, or your workplace may have a Payroll giving scheme you can sign up to.
  • Leaving a gift in your Will can create a lasting legacy to help us to continue the fight against blood cancer for a brighter future.
  • Shop! Give As You Live is a shopping comparison website. They receive a commission each time a sale is processed through their website. At least 50% of this commission is then donated to your chosen charity. If you regularly shop online, it can be a fantastic way to raise extra funds at no cost to you at all.
  • Sell! Have a clear out and sell items on eBay for Charity. It is quick and easy and you can chose to donate the whole amount or a percentage (from 10% to 100%) of the final sale price.
