Fundraising and volunteering

We would love to hear from you if you are considering fundraising for UCARE.

Whether you want to run a marathon, organise a quiz, have a cake stall or any other great fundraising ideas, we are always here to discuss and support you as much as we can. We will advertise your event on our website and other media and can supply you with t-shirts, buckets, posters etc.

Even though you may think you are unable to help, we all know at least one company, shop, local business or organisation with which we have a 'link' – tenuous though it may seem. Many supermarkets encourage their customers to choose a charity for store collections and businesses and sports clubs often have a “Charity of the Year”. If you need more information about UCARE for any applications or media releases to advertise your events please do let us know.

Or maybe you are able to help us raise awareness of urological cancers at an event, sports club or business; we can supply you with posters, information leaflets and even educational talks. Please remember to send us any photographs of the event for our media pages too.

For further information call Val or Karen on 01865 767777 or email us at We look forward to hearing from you.
