A little bit different
Life would be boring if we all fundraised the same. The ideas are endless if you use your imagination, but really, it’s just about turning what you love to do into a unique and interesting challenge.
It might be you take on a something daring like a fire walk or barge pull, or even selling unique crafts or produce. Your fundraiser doesn’t even have to be wacky and wild, maybe people would pay to see you dress up for the day, or a sponsored silence if you’re the ‘chatty one’ or are you brave enough to shave!

Sheilagh’s fundraising adventure
“My mum, Paula died from lung cancer in July 2015. She was only 50. The time between her diagnosis and her passing was only 9 months but if it had been another form of cancer, her prognosis probably would have been very different.
Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation have been researching and fundraising for lung cancer for over 30 years, that’s why my family and I always choose to support them.
Mum was a fiery Irishwoman. She was born in Zambia, Africa, and moved to Ireland before the age of five. She was a talented musician and could play the piano, violin, flute, clarinet, and trumpet. She was a loving and friendly person who loved to laugh.
A lot of people thought I was mad when I decided to do a fire walk for charity! I thought it would be a really cool thing to do.
There wasn’t much training to do. I took part in a motivational seminar beforehand where I actually also ended up walking over broken glass! The whole session was mostly about believing in yourself and becoming a better version of yourself by leaving your comfort zone.
All you need to do to get across coals burning at 1400 degrees Fahrenheit is walk with purpose! I got quite nervous waiting for my turn as there were 22 walkers but as instructed, I thought about my purpose and reason for doing it – my mum – a fire walk is the kind of thing she’d loved to have done.”
