Fundraising Ideas

Mesothelioma UK relies entirely on fundraising and donations.

Without your help we could not continue to support our patients and their carers. 

If you’re stuck for fundraising ideas, we are here to help. Take a look at some of our fundraising favourites.  

Many people set up an online giving page. Most people use JustGiving to do this. You can register for a JustGiving page in aid of Mesothelioma UK here.
