Ready to get your colleagues involved in making a difference? Whether it’s your office, shop or school, or wherever it is you work – your colleagues and teams can directly help local people affected by cancer.

Every year people across Norfolk & Waveney get together in their workplaces to support Big C and have a great time while doing so. From the classic ‘dress down day’ to a cake bake competition, the possibilities are endless. Some choose to hold ‘donation days’ and bring in items to donate to our shops, while others persuade their senior managers to head out into the car park with a bucket and sponge to shine up their staff’s cars.

Whatever the activity may be, fundraising at work is a great way of bringing the team together for a good cause.

Here are some of our top ideas for fundraising at work:

  • Give something up for a month…or two – on your own or in a team, give up a sweet treat or favourite tipple for a month in return for donations
  • Battle of the brains – see who’s really the brains behind the operation and battle it out in a Friday afternoon quiz
  • Team Challenge – ask colleagues to get together and join a challenge event – take on a team skydive or muddy run
  • Theme Day – Choose a theme and go with it! Outfits, decorations, music – the lot! Throwback to your favourite decade or honour an iconic hero.
