Doug's story

"Fundraising with collection boxes is easy. All that is involved is just to be nice when asking the shop to put a box on their counter."

Placing and regularly emptying our collection tins in shops, pubs, restaurants and other businesses in your area is a really easy way to get involved with fundraising and helps make a difference to women facing ovarian cancer. Becoming a Target Ovarian Cancer collection tin volunteer to help raise vital funds for the work we do.

If you'd like to find out how you can become a Target Ovarian Cancer collection tin volunteer please email Robyn on fundraising@targetovariancancer.org.uk 

Do your own collection

Get in touch and let us know where you're hoping to collect and we will try to secure the permit you'll need. These often need to be organised several months in advance so plan your date early on. Jane (pictured in her 'Shelby the Dog' costume) did just that and collected at Edinburgh Waverely Station with her family and friends, raising almost £350. You could even add a twist to your fundraising; the Friends of Wirral Belles WI held a bag pack at their local Sainsbury's in Neston, collecting over £800!

You will be sent all the materials you'll need for the day: collection buckets, symptoms leaflets and your own Target Ovarian Cancer tshirt.
