Get your friends involved too. It makes a huge difference, so why not ask them to shave their head or come to work all week with purple hair. It will encourage the rest of your office to get involved too.

Case Study

Maureen the marvellous fundraiser

When Maureen lost her husband Peter to pancreatic cancer in 2011, she organised a collection for Pancreatic Cancer UK and began a fundraising and awareness campaign that continues today.

Over the years Maureen has organised countless events in Peter’s memory, and has been joined by friends who have also lost loved ones. Together with her daughter, Sarah Parker, and friends Claire Grant and Rebekah Stubbs they have put on coffee mornings, car boot sales, cricket matches, charity discos and more. They have taken part in Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, pulled on their aprons for Bake a Difference and turned the local church purple for Purple Lights.

But they’re still not done. Coming up is a Coffee Morning Fayre Extravaganza, featuring stalls, raffles and lots of cake. And for this year’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month they will once again be lighting up their local church.

In total the group has raised nearly £10,000 towards our game-changing research and services for patients. They truly are fundraising superstars.
