The In Thing (raising money for Cancer Research)

Hey peeps, I have some information for you today about raising money for Cancer Research UK:


A night in with the girls. For Cancer Research UK


Forget fighting your way to the dance floor, queuing for the toilet, or standing in the cold waiting for the bus home. This November, thousands of women across the country will be saying ‘I’m In’ as they get together for ‘The IN Thing’, Cancer Research UK’s new fundraising initiative that combines a great night in with the girls with a great cause.

Cancer Research UK has teamed up with some of the UK’s best talent including TV and radio broadcaster Edith Bowman, model and designer Twiggy and actress and dancer Camilla Dallerup to help you organise your ultimate night in, with inspirational ideas, party planning guides, delicious recipes and playlists. So whether you’re catching up on the couch, hosting a dinner party, or dusting off that old karaoke machine, you’ll have all the support you need to create an unforgettable night for all your friends.

The IN Thing is the perfect excuse to get together while raising money for Cancer Research UK’s life saving work.  Hosts can set a fundraising target for their group and collect donations upfront or on the night. Invite friends, family, neighbours and colleagues and indulge in a fun event at home to help  beat cancer sooner.

This got me thinking about what I would like to do.

I love the idea of doing something like this to raise money- I am thinking an afternoon tea with the girls would be very civilised, and a wonderful way to spend a chilly autumnal Saturday afternoon. Ages ago I made some lovely pumpkin scones (I found the recipe on the internet) and I am thinking they would go perfectly with a cup of chai- I have not made them for years but they are just right for this time of year. Another girly baking project is macaroons as they are just so pretty and delicate. What would you do as a night/ day in to raise money?

  1. I love that idea. Definitely afternoon tea would be my, er, cup of tea!
    I think cake baking and selling cakes is a great way to raise money too. My friend at work made a load of Indian food and brought it in and we all contributed to a money pot for the typhoon disaster. It’s just a nice way of doing things I think.
