We hope this selection gets you inspired. Once you’ve decided what you want to do, simply set up your JustGiving page or donate online. Whatever you raise will make a difference and help us be there for young people with cancer throughout the coronavirus crisis and beyond – thank you.
Fun and games
Get people together on Zoom, Skype, Facetime etc. and host a virtual quiz. Simply set up a fundraising page where people can donate to enter. Try making it a weekly event with friends, family or colleagues to keep your fundraising going.
Music brings people together – even from a distance! Host an online gig, open mic, karaoke night or talent show with people donating to get involved and have some fun.
Whether it’s an online FIFA or Fortnite tournament, or some good old-fashioned parlour games over video chat, get your mates together and donate to play.
Arrange with your fellow home workers to wear fancy dress for the day in exchange for donations to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Early morning rave
One for the 90s kids maybe: gather your friends on a video chat and host a pre-work, alcohol-free rave to get the blood pumping for a day at your desk.
Get off your screen
Set yourself a physical challenge to complete from home. How about working out the distance to your nearest Teenage Cancer Trust unit and running or cycling the miles over a number of days? Or for every £1 donated, complete a certain number of push-ups or flights of stairs.
Donate the difference
Donate the cost of your commute, coffee, lunch or any other daily savings from not working at the office. Easy.
Do 30 laps of your garden a day, for 30 days, to mark Teenage Cancer Trust’s 30th anniversary year. (Difficulty level may vary depending on the size of your garden.)
Hair we go
Maybe now’s the perfect time for a beard growing competition? Or go the other way and get sponsored to shave your head (and get a bunch of friends on board to do the same!)
Get sponsored to do an activity for a whole day – how about playing a board game for 12 hours straight or dusting off that 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle?
Fundraising ideas for kids
Spare change challenge
Collect all the spare change lying round the house and donate the total to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Arrange a virtual movie night with friends: why not pick a Disney/Pixar classic to all watch at the same time, and donate the savings on cinema tickets and popcorn?
A guess the baby/pet/drawing contest is easy to organise online and fun for kids and grownups alike – or a classic Name the Bear competition where entrants make a small donation to suggest a name.
Ask family and friends to sponsor you to stay silent for a whole day (could prove very popular with home-schooling parents right now!) – and why not get your classmates to do the same?
Put all this extra spare time to good use and challenge your year group to a sponsored readathon. The class to read the most books in 30 days is the winner.
