We're all hands on deck this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we need as many people as possible fundraising and volunteering for Breast Cancer Haven. 

Our support is free of charge so that anyone who needs us can come.

But we can’t do it without you. We need to raise £1,000 for every person we help. 

Take a look at our Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraising ideas below to help us be there for everyone who needs us, when they need us. 

See below for some of our events run by us and our supporters, and be inspired to run your own fundraiser. 

1st October: Pub Quiz 
Head over to the Star of Kings for their pub quiz, test your general knowledge and see if you can ace the Breast Cancer Haven Bonus Boob Round.

3rd October: Blush
As the charity’s flagship event, Blush makes its mark as one of the most exclusive events of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the fundraising calendar. Blush is our annual gala dinner; this year it’s The Greatest Showman themed. We will need help from people acting as table hosts, auction spotters, silent auction item roaming, prize distribution, info & cash desk and help with packing up.
