The coronavirus Pandemic has changed the way we live in many ways. If your fundraising plans have changed, your event has been postponed or cancelled we've put together some brilliant ideas for virtual fundraising that you can do from the comfort of your own home - or in your local area.
From virtual cycles, runs, walks and swimming events to gaming, quizzing, upcycling and more - there's a whole host of virtual fundraising events you can do to support Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. We thank you for your continued support, and with your help we can continue to provide the very best care possible to cancer patients across the region.
Take a look at some of the ideas below and get ready to challenge cancer!
For many of us, streaming has become second-nature to us so why not harness the power of technology and take on a streaming challenge for Clatterbridge?
With so many different options available, this is a fantastic way to socialise with your family and friends and connecting with like-minded people across the globe.
Why not host a Netflix movie marathon using Teleparty and ask everyone to donate what you would pay for a cinema ticket?
Or you could organise a 24hr online gaming tournament - great for those who like a challenge!

Everyone loves a good Pub Quiz, and nothing beats competing against our friends for first place!
Why not set up a JustGiving page, and using Skype, Zoom or Google Hangouts you can organise your very own virtual Pub Quiz from the comfort of your own home.
You could even offer prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners - whatever you do this is a fantastic way of getting everyone together to support Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
Who says exercise has to be boring? Take on a virtual physical challenge, and together we will transform cancer care for generations.
There's a world of virtual physical challenges out there, and there's something for everyone. Whether you take on a virtual run, swim 10,000 lengths in your local pool or cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats in your Spin Class virtual physical challenges are widely available for everyone, of all abilities.
If you're stuck for inspiration, get in touch with our Charity Team who can help provide you with route maps from some of our favourite events, including Lead The Way. Or, if you really want to push yourself why not ask for the GPX from our Challenge Cancer Cycle or Ride of the Roses cycles?

Upcycling and decluttering is not only good for the environment, but it's also a great way of fundraising for Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
From unwanted Christmas gifts to clearing out your clothes there are tons of websites and apps you can use to sell and declutter. Why not donate what you make from your sales to Clatterbridge, and you could help to save even more lives.
Or why not consider donating your unwanted gifts to Clatterbridge Cancer Charity?
We organise various activities at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre throughout the year, including our Summer Tea Party to help raise money to support cancer patients and their families.
So whether you've got gift sets collecting dust, or boxes of chocolates that are creating clutter in the cupboards consider donating them to the Charity to help us continue to raise funds for cancer patients.
Whatever you choose to do, you can rest assured you will be helping to make a huge difference to the lives of cancer patients throughout Merseyside, Cheshire and beyond.
