Virtual Collections

Support from your sofa!

You can now support cancer patients from the comfort of your living room by raising money online through your very own Virtual Collections!

We have been dedicated to supporting cancer patients in Wales for over 75 years and the Coronavirus has made our support services for cancer patients and their loved ones more important than ever before.

The effects of the Coronavirus pandemic has impacted our fundraising like never before.  We’ve closed our shops, postponed our events and cancelled all our bucket collections.

But you can still help! 

Setting up your Virtual Collection is super easy and will only take a few minutes. Every penny will help support cancer patients and their families.

  1. Head over to our urgent appeal by clicking here
  2. Click ‘Start Fundraising’ on the right side of the page
  3. Set up your own fundraising page
  4. Tell a story, get some photos on there and brand your page! We’ve got some handy tips and downloadable items here to help you!

Promoting your Virtual Collection

As your Virtual Collection is online, the best way to promote is through your social media – Facebook, Instragram, Twitter.

Your page is ready to share as soon as it is set up through Just Giving and posting about it regularly will help to keep those donations coming in.  Remember to ask friends and family to share it too! And don’t forget to post it in any groups you are part of to make sure you let everyone know about the money you are trying to raise.

Top tips to maximise your donations

Start off your collection! 

If you can spare some change then why not donate a few pounds to your own collection?  It will get the ball rolling and encourage others to do the same.

Keep your supporters updated.

Why not post a daily update on your collection page to keep your supporters informed of your progress and how the money is helping us.  Our website contains lots of information on our services and our Facebook page is updated daily and full of reasons why your support is important more now then ever!

We’ve even put together some really colourful images here for you to use on social media!

Say Thank You!

When someone donates, say thank you. Pop a post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and tag them in. This is a great way to thank them for their donation and increase the opportunity for people to see your page.

Get the whole family involved.

Are the kids bored? Is your partner looking for something to do?  Ask them to spread the word through their social media and help increase those important donations!!

Have fun! Go crazy! Dress up!

A Virtual Collection is an amazing way to raise money by doing something you love over a long period of time! You could do a 24 hour readathon, cookathon, knitathon, singathon or colourathon! The options are endless. You can even get the kids involved and make it a family activity!

Whatever you are doing post pictures or funny videos in your page, or on social media to entertain your friends and family.  You could pledge to do a challenge or dare once you’ve hit a certain amount!
