We rely entirely on voluntary donations and money raised through fundraising to fund our vital work supporting local blood cancer patients and their families. Without your support we simply couldn’t do, what we do.
By fundraising for Linc you can rest assured that the money you raise will stay locally to fund our essential services like our Clinical Psychology team, who support patients and their wider family through their cancer journey. It will also fund the incredibly beneficial research and trial work we do for local patients. It will also go directly to our charity fund, which patients can access quickly and easily if they need additional financial support for things like mortgage or rent payments, childcare costs or anything else which can help ease the financial strain upon a diagnosis.
We also use the money to help buy things that our patients tell us would help make their stay in the hospital more bearable. We fund items like Sky TV on the wards, craft boxes on the day unit and items such as exercise bikes. We are always happy to fund new items which patients and clinicians feel would be beneficial.
By becoming a Linc fundraiser you can proudly say you are making a huge difference to hundreds of local people.
It’s our mission to build on our community and fundraising network where we support and steward local people to raise money for us. We want to inspire individuals and groups to spread the work of Linc far and wide all driven by the same goal, whilst having fun along the way.
The types of fundraising we do:
We love working with dedicated individuals, groups, schools and teams who raise money through enjoyable activities such as bake sales, quizzes, fashion shows and sponsored events. Our experienced team at Linc will work with you to support your fundraising to ensure it’s a great success.
We’re proud to partner with local businesses that support the work of Linc and create lasting relationships for many years. In doing so we provide Employee Volunteering opportunities where staff donate their time to gain experience and we can work alongside you to ensure that our work together enriches your business’s Corporate Social Responsibility focus.
We provide opportunities for speakers who are passionate about the work of Linc or who have a personal connection to the charity to come and talk to schools, businesses and groups to tell our story and inspire them to consider supporting us.
Linc offers places in the London Marathon and various running and cycling events such as the Cheltenham Triathlon. We can also work with you to cre-ate a unique challenge event that is personal to you to tick off your bucket list while raising the vital profile and money for Linc.
It’s an emotional time when a family member, friend, colleague or partner dies and we are always honoured when people remember loved ones by making a donation to Linc or in place of flowers at a funeral.
Consider leaving Linc a gift in your will which would form an incredible legacy after you have gone for the future of the charity and to ensure that we can continue to support blood cancer patients and their families for years to come. We are partnered with John Bees who have kindly offered Linc supporters and patients a free will writing service.
