Sell your wares
Whether you’re a master craftsman, a wizard in the kitchen or simply surrounded by too much stuff, you can sell things to help free the future from cancer.
You could secure a stall at the local markets or simply have a garage sale at home. And if you also put on a barbecue and let buyers know that all funds raised will go to Cancer Council, you’ll find it easy to smash your fundraising goal.
Source prizes for competitions
Ask local businesses and your networks if they can donate products or services to help you raise money.
Put on a raffle and sell tickets to everyone you know. Or plan a silent auction and give the prizes away to the highest bidder.
You can add excitement by booking the local community hall and having a live auction with an auctioneer. Real estate agents are great for this.
Get your business involved
This is a fantastic way to raise funds. You could get your business to donate some of its profits for a month, for example by donating $1 from every purchase or an overall percentage of takings.
Your customers will appreciate your commitment – as will your staff.

Greg's Cherry Sale
Greg raised funds to help cancer patients by opening the doors to his family-run orchard and creating a ‘pick your own cherries’ experience for the first time.
“With the pressures of work and family life, I’ve found it very hard to find the time to give back to the community. By teaming up with Cancer Council I’ve been able to combine both,” Greg told us.
“Cancer Council is a fantastic organisation that supports families at their hardest times. With our family being affected by cancer, this is a cause that’s close to our hearts.”
Greg charged an entry fee for visitors, and $1 from each kilogram of cherries sold was donated. He raised $663!
