Monday December 5th
We are thrilled to be December's 'charity of the month' for online shopping tool Give As You Live.
Give As You Live is a brilliant fundraising idea that raises funds for Cure Leukaemia simply by people shopping online. Anyone who signs up to Give As You Live and makes online purchases through the scheme from all the major retailers will see a percentage of their purchase donated to Cure Leukaemia. Over £550 has been raised for the charity through Give As You Live so don't delay, make sure you sign up HERE today!
As charity of the month Cure Leukaemia could see up to £3,000 in additional funds before Christmas!
Tuesday December 6th
Our friends at Pinsent Masons have been fundraising for Cure Leukaemia throughout 2016 after they set an office target of £40,000 for the year, enough to fund a specislist research nurse for one year. After months of effort they are close to to hitting this fantastic figure and have organised some festive fundraising ideas to make sure they surpass it.
On December 6th they are inviting a represenatative from Stella & Dot Jewellers into the office for a couple of hours and they have agreed to donate 10% of each sale they make to Cure Leukaemia.
The legal firm's fundraising continues well into December with various events to raise funds.
Wednesday December 7th
Our wonderful friends at Hogan's Cider have their stall at the Birmingham Christmas Market every year and not only do they provide revellers with the best mulled cider available but they also raise funds for Cure Leukaemia by donating 1p from every pint to the charity. On Wednesday's they have live music in the Hogan's Christmas Bar so make sure you pop in for a festive drink!

Friday December 9th
On Sunday October 15th 2017 the inaugural Birmingham International Marathon will take place and Cure Leukaemia has FREE places available for this historic event. In return for a free place the charity ask for a minimum fundraising amount which will be decided in due course. Over 20 have signed up for this event already - will you join them on the streets of the Second City?
If 26.2miles is a bit far then perhaps the Great Birmingham Run at 13.1miles will be more manageable. Run on the same day as the marathon you can, again, run for FREE through Cure Leukaemia in return for £299 in sponsorship.
Saturday December 10th
The Heart Of England Singers will be singing carols at Sainsburys in Dorridge to raise funds for Cure Leukaemia.
Sunday December 11th
It's that time of year when we are all swamped with a huge pile of Christmas Cards we need to write and more than likely the people we are sending them too are daunted by the whole process too! This year Just Giving has started a great scheme that allows you to send an e-card and donate the cost of the card and postage to charity.
Click HERE to send all your cards this year electronically and invite your friends to do the same - imagine how much you could raise!
