Ideas and inspiration


We’re always inspired by the imaginative ways people support Maggie’s.

Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing but whatever you choose make sure it’s something that works for you. Make it fun and easy!

Get your friends together

At the heart of every Maggie’s is a kitchen table so what better way to raise money for Maggie’s than by getting your friends and family around your kitchen table for Kitchen Table Day?

Put on a fashion show

Create an evening of glitz and glamour on the catwalk and sell tickets to create a fun-filled event. Take a look at our fashion show event guide

Host a quiz

Competitive? Host a quiz with our step by step guide sure to bring out everyone’s competitive side. Take a look at our quiz event guide.

Have a party

Whether it’s a posh ball, luxurious super club, kids' party or laid-back film night, let your hair down and have a party!

Arrange a sports tournament

Whatever the sport or level of ability, a tournament is a great way to get lots of people together, stay active and raise money for Maggie’s. Take a look at our how to host a sports tournament event guide.

Put on a golf day

Like a round or two or know a group that does? Hold a golf competition at the local club with some food and auction prizes at the end.

Give something up

Fancy going booze free, or giving up fast food? Get sponsored to give your favourite thing up and help people with cancer while you dot it.

Get fit

Want to push yourself physically and get in shape? There are loads of events you can take part in or check out our events up and down the county (…and even overseas).

Do a Maggie’s to Maggie’s

Cycle, walk or swim between any of our centres and make your our adventure. Or join us in the summer for our series of Maggie’s to Maggie’s events across the UK.
