We couldn't provide our vital services without the people who support us through fundraising. There are many ways in which you can support our fundraising efforts; you could join the Olive Tree fundraising team, simply attend a fundraising event or organise your own; all will make a tangible difference to people living with cancer. Details of upcoming events organised by the Olive Tree will be posted on this website and our social media platforms
We are always keen to welcome new volunteers to our friendly and enthusiastic fundraising team led by Alyson Smith, the Olive Tree Fundraising Manager. Volunteering as part of our fundraising team is rewarding and enjoyable; you will be able to put your skills and experience to good use and develop new ones. You can commit as much or as little time as you wish. Please click here for more details of the wide range of opportunities available.
A number of fundraising events are run by volunteers at Olive Tree. Details of all upcoming events will be posted on this website and our social media platforms; please come along and support us whilst having a good time.
Why not organise a fundraising event yourself? It does not have to be big or spectacular, the important thing is to have fun and raise as much money as possible for our vital patient and family support work.
You may want to consider setting up a personal fundraising page for your event - you can do this via our JustGiving page which will allow you to accept donations for your fundraising activities. Simply visit www.justgiving.com/theolivetree/raisemoney and click on the link to 'make your page'. If you want to raise money in memory of a loved one, visit www.justgiving.com/theolivetree/remember. Family, friends and colleagues will be able to sponsor you by credit or debit card from anywhere in the UK and beyond. In addition, JustGiving automatically reclaims 25% in Gift Aid on UK donations on behalf of the Olive Tree making your fundraising efforts even more valuable.
We would love to hear from you if you are planning a fundraising event so that we can feature it on this website and our social media platforms and encourage people to support you. If you have organised an event, no matter how small, to raise funds for the Olive Tree, please send us a few words and photos of your event so that we can recognise your support and inspire others to fundraise for us too.
