Our 30th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign

York Against Cancer turns 30 in 2017 - with an ambitious £100,000 appeal

Since January 1987 we’ve  have had three decades of working to improve the lives of people living with cancer in York and around; three decades in which you helped us raise more than £14 million to fund local research, care and education projects.

In our anniversary year, can you help our latest amazing project?

Our £700,000 new mobile chemotherapy unit will bring treatment closer to home for rural patients. Once up and running this summer, it will cost just under £1,000 to keep it on the road each day, giving chemotherapy to patients in Malton, Selby, Scarborough and Bridlington. Our £100,000 appeal will get the service off to a flying start by supporting its vital work.

Donations are very welcome – to donate by phone to our 30th Anniversary Appeal, text YACP30 plus the amount of your donation: choose from £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10, and send to 70070. You can even add Gift Aid, and every penny of your donation goes to charity.

It’s also really simple to give online here 


or by post to us at 31 North Moor Road, Huntington, YO32 9QN.

Our Fundraising Events

We’re planning a string of exciting events including our glamorous Feathers and Pearls Ball, which will celebrate 30 years of York Against Cancer at York Racecourse’s fabulous Voltigeur Suite on September 23. Tickets for this event are £75 per person, with an early-bird offer of £65 per person if booked before June 20 2017.

We’d love it if you could join us at the ball or at any of our other fundraising events during the year, but if you can’t get along there are lots of other ways that you can help.

If you would like to hold an event in our support we would be thrilled – let us know and we will give you what support we can with publicity and/or help on the day.

We are always grateful for gifts or prize donations to be used at our own events. Maybe you would like to make us your charity of the year?  Get in touch and we will support you however we can.

We also welcome interest from people keen to volunteer their time in our service.
