Our 2023 Fundraisers!

19 Dec 2023

As 2023 draws to a close, we would love to take a moment to look back at some of our incredible fundraisers.

It would be impossible to name all the fundraisers held for us over the last 12 months, but we would like to emphasise how instrumental every single one has been in keeping our services running, growing and helping all we can. From head shaves to curry nights, here are just a few highlights…

  • The team from Ged Bell Butchers raced for us in this year’s Dragon Boat Challenge (taking second place!) and raised over £2000.

  • Ardent Financial Planning have employed an ongoing referral scheme this year, making a £50 donation for every meeting that comes from a client recommendation. So far, they have raised over £1200.

  • 132 players took part in this year’s Golf Day, raising more than £16,500.

  • Stamford Bridge Community Choir have raised an amazing total of £11,818 so far in celebration of Rachel Whittaker.

  • York Brass Against Cancer raised more than £650 in their concert earlier this year.

  • Claudine, her seven-year-old son Eeben and mother Matthea took on the 115km Camino de Santiago trek in honour of Claudine’s friend Rachel, raising over £700.

  • In support of their friend Harry, Luke and the boys braved the shave and raised £3343 for us, smashing their £1500 goal.

  • Keith organised a Pro Snooker evening and raised a whopping £629.15.

  • YDL took on an incredible 12 Peak challenge and raised over £1400 for us.

  • We had 100 runners join us for the Jane Tomlinson York 10k!

  • June’s Curry and Quiz Night raised more than £800.

  • This year’s Weighton Wolds Rotary Club Classic Car Show raised over £4500.

  • Sarah and her family raised £900 at their garden party to celebrate Sarah’s recovery from breast cancer.

Thank you so much to every single person who has taken part in a fundraiser for us in 2023! Your generosity means we’re able to continue supporting cancer patients and their loved ones through services such as:

  • Our daily minibus, which takes cancer patients from their homes in York to their radiotherapy appointments in St James’ Hospital, Leeds.
  • Our two respite properties in Filey and Yapham, where cancer patients and their loved ones can enjoy a free break away.
  • Our cancer support centre, The Leveson Centre, where anyone affected by cancer can pop in for a chat or make use of our range of holistic services and activities.
  • Funding ground-breaking cancer research at the University of York for the prevention and treatment of bladder cancer.
  • And more!
