Be a part of our future
The future is us.
Every hour that you support us, every penny that is donated, every pound that is spent in our shops and every fundraising event that is held makes our work possible.
For our 75th Birthday, Tenovus Cancer Care is looking back at 75 years of support in the community, while setting our sights on a world where no one dies of cancer. This world will not be achievable without the generosity of our supporters, so we’ve made sure that 2018 is full of exciting opportunities for our community to get involved and work with us towards the future that all cancer patients deserve.
This year, we’ll have lots of different events to celebrate our Birthday and as part of our celebration, we want to go back to our roots and honour the original ten business men who founded Tenovus Cancer Care back in 1943. All those years ago, they launched a simple raffle with the grand prize of a car, which raised significant funds to continue the charity’s work.
So to honour them, we want to do the same thing!
This year we’re aiming to raise over £75,000 through our Big Birthday Raffle, where a lucky Tenovus Cancer Care supporter will win an MG3 sport car! What an amazing way to not only raise vital funds to help us continue supporting cancer patients and their loved ones, but also tribute the legacy of our ten founders who’s commitment to their community still inspires us today.
This year we’re also trying to break records! As we are 75 years young, we will be aiming to break the world record for the longest Zumbathon class ever for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Held over the 12th and 13th of October in Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, we are looking for people to help us smash the world record with a Zumba class that will last 24 hours! So if you think you could be up for the challenge and be a part of history, sign up here. Places are going fast so don't miss out!
There are so many ways you can get involved with us for our birthday, including volunteering with us!
Not only do our volunteers help us support more cancer patients and their loved ones, but it’s also a great thing for you too! You could develop some new skills, have access to training, improve your employability, meet new people and make friends, as well as be healthier and happier… the benefits are endless.
So in our 75th year, there are plenty of ways that you can help us and all it takes is 75 minutes! No matter what time you give, minutes, hours, days, weeks or months your support helps us work towards a world where no one dies of cancer. Click here to find out how just 75 minutes of your time this year can make a difference to cancer patients and their loved ones.
It’s not just individual challenges and activities this year; we’ve also asked the amazing businesses in our community to get involved!
This year, our Pass the Pledge Parcel game is making its way around the community to our fantastic supporters. The Pass the Pledge Parcel, our unique take on the childhood classic, will be visit businesses in our community and each time, instead off ripping off a layer, they pledge to support Tenovus Cancer Care for our 75th Birthday!
