Host a Pink Party
Every year, 6,000 patients will benefit from our new Breast Unit in the new Royal.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so it seems the perfect opportunity and time for us to encourage local people, places and organisations to host a Pink Party. This year, all money raised will go towards our £750,000 appeal and improving the lives of our 6,000 patients and their families.
There are a variety of ways you can get involved; whether it is a pink themed night in with the girls, a raffle or quiz, a workplace event encouraging others to wear pink or even a football tournament in pink! Whatever it is we want you to be as creative as possible and host the pinkest party in town.
Play R weekly Lottery
Play R new weekly lottery for a chance to win an amazing £25,000 plus many other cash prizes. At the same time you’ll be helping towards the transformation of services within our new Royal for millions of patients and their families.
Every £1 line that you play goes towards our £10 million New Hospital Appeal to save more lives and make each patient stay or visit a positive and supportive experience.
Holding a collection is a fun, easy and fantastic way to raise money for R Charity and our appeal.
Whether you would like to volunteer at one of our planned supermarket collections, organise your own collection in a supermarket or place of your choice, or take a collection box, we would love to hear from you.
Street and town centre collections are a great way to fundraise and promote the R Charity brand. If you would like to help and volunteer your time, please email the fundraising team here with your details.

R Penny Appeal supporters come from far and wide from IOM and Jersey to Liverpool. They bring their pots back every 6-12 months when they come for their check-up, send a cheque, or contact us for collection.
We have the tins and the pots…if you have some pennies, or you think that you could help us to fill one of our pots, please contact us via the Ask the Team form here or email the fundraising team here for your pot or tin.
