FUN-draising

Spooky Welly Walk is a fundraising walk. It’s a great way to introduce your little ones to the wonderful world of fundraising for a good cause. Although every child will receive a medal for completing the walk, those who fundraise will be treated as Roy Castle Royalty!

We’re asking each child who takes part to try and raise at least £50. If they do, they will receive a Golden Ticket to be used on the Fun Fair, Spooky Welly Walk Keyring, and a Sweet Treat! These can be collected on the day at the e-ticket hut and given as a reward for all their hard work and support. You can set up your child’s campaign page here.

Why fundraise?

Lung cancer is a disease that affects so many people; young and old, men and women, smoker, non-smoker and never smoker, lung cancer can affect anyone.

Taking more lives than breast, prostate and pancreatic cancers combined, lung cancer tears thousands of families apart and the pandemic has only made an already devastating disease even more deadly.

Prior to the pandemic, survival rates for lung cancer were rising. Now it is feared that only 13 per cent of those diagnosed will live for five years or more, and less than half will live beyond a year.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the only charity in the UK solely dedicated to supporting people affected by all forms of the disease and leading the charge to improve outcomes so people can live through lung cancer rather than die of it.

Our research into early detection has laid the groundwork for lung cancer screening and we are proud to be supporting NHS England on the rollout of its Targeted Lung Health Check programmes. Early diagnosis is key, and these life-saving initiatives mean more people will be able to have curative treatment.
