Great ideas don't just happen, so we have pulled together a helpful list below to get you started

So, you are wanting to organise a fundraising event?

Firstly, thank you! And secondly, let’s make this fun!

There are hundreds of ways you can fundraise for Kidney Cancer UK and our sister charity, Kidney Cancer Scotland. With our  A-Z of Fundraising think about what you enjoy doing and see if you can make money from it either on your own, a group or as a team.
