Following the success of our first ever ‘Helping Researchers in Need‘ Fundraising Week in 2015, when nearly 70 organisations helped us raise over £17K, we’re hosting our second Fundraising Week from 16-20 October and we hope you will take part.

If your organisation was unable to help us last time, we’d love it if you could participate this year!  It’s easy to get involved.  All you have to do now is sign up by emailing .  Then you can start thinking about how you can raise some money for us between now and October.  Previous participants told us that it was a great team builder and a good way to bring staff from across their organisations together.  You could plan anything from:

  • Holding a coffee morning, or cake sale to organising a ‘Great British Bake-off Challenge’
  • Collecting money in your reception area or at events in a charity bucket
  • Running a marathon
  • Abseiling off a building

More ideas and support materials will be available from our website soon.
