Fundraiser of the Month: Sydney

What’s the fundraising challenge you set yourself and why? 

I decided to shave my head to raise money for children’s cancer research and care, I set a target of £1500 which then changed and I decided to aim for £2000.

How’s your challenge going? If it’s completed – how did you find it?

It’s finished and I raised £4168. I really enjoyed the positive reactions I got from people. My school was really encouraging. My hair looks ok, but I do need to wear a beanie when it’s cold.


Why did you decide to fundraise for Children with Cancer UK?  

My grandad died of cancer, and I am sad there is no cure, I also think it’s especially sad for children to get cancer so I thought I would try to help.

By fundraising, Sydney has raised an amazing £4168 for Children with Cancer UK’s work, which will help us invest in more life-saving childhood cancer research. We’d like to say a huge thank you for your support – it is only thanks to supporters like you that we can continue our work.

If you would like to raise money in aid of Children with Cancer UK, we’ll help you every step of the way.  Start fundraising today
