Thank you for considering a fundraising event for KCSN

By organising or taking part in a fundraising event for KCSN, you can help to support kidney cancer patients and their families throughout the UK while having fun at the same time. Fundraising events can be small, like a coffee morning with friends, or on a larger scale, such as a black-tie ball. They can be active, such as a sponsored walk, run, cycle or skydive, or social, such as a quiz night, pampering evening or party. Every pound raised makes a difference to the lives of people affected by kidney cancer.

There are many fun ways that you can raise funds for KCSN. Take a look at the following list for some ideas for things that you might want to consider and could do on your own or with family and friends: Fun fundraising ideas

A very big THANK YOU to wonderful Hollie Bailey, aged just 8 years old. Hollie’s dad has kidney cancer and Hollie wanted to do something to help. With the support of her mum, Rachel, Hollie decided to host a Tea and Cake Afternoon in her home town of Thame, Oxfordshire, to raise funds for KCSN. You can still donate funds, and read more about Hollie’s dad’s story here.

Everyone at KCSN wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Hollie – what a star! Hollie far exceeded her target of £200 and has so far raised over £1100! Here you can see a selection of the fabulous cakes that were on sale, complete with green ribbons for kidney cancer!


A massive THANK YOU to an inspirational woman, Debbie Murphy, who ran her first full marathon yesterday in Stratford-upon-Avon, almost 5 years to the day since she had her nephrectomy after being diagnosed with kidney cancer. This is a remarkable achievement by a very wonderful woman. Debbie is raising money for our own Kidney Cancer Support Network and Facing up 2 Kidney Cancer, both founded and run by kidney cancer patients. She has already exceeded her target of £1,000 and has so far raised over £1,300. Thank you Debbie – we are so grateful for your support.
