Cancer Connections relies partly on charitable donations to provide its services. Our fundraising events are great fun as well as effective ways of making the money we need - join in, help us and have a great time!

We have an annual Calendar of Events whose dates are announced well in advance; some events require you to register that you will be taking part in the event, and you will need a Sponsorship Form. 

We have regular events coming along throughout the year: the 2017 Dates for our own main events are listed here. Others may be added, as soon as they are finalised.
