Group Fundraising

Our fantastic Community Fundraising groups and Friends give up their spare time to help raise vital funds for people living with cancer in Northern Ireland. We rely on them to help organise fundraising events and activities for us within their local community.


img_0075Our Community Fundraising groups are well structured, they meet regularly and are committed to organising a number of fundraising events throughout the year for Cancer Focus NI. Our Friends are individuals or groups of people that organise one or two events every year when it suits them.


As well as organising a variety of fundraising events, from coffee mornings, sponsored walks and bridge evenings to luncheons and collection days in their local towns, our group members also act as ambassadors, helping to spread the word about the work of Cancer Focus NI.


Groups are a wonderful way to come together, to meet old and new friends, develop new skills and share experiences while raising vital funds for us.
