MRBA Fundraising Week 16-20 October


Following the success from our first ever Fundraising Week in 2015, when almost 70 organisations raised over £17K, we’re holding another MRBA ‘Helping Researchers in Need’ Fundraising Week October 16-20.

As part of our 40th anniversary year, we aim to raise a total of £40K and hope this Fundraising Week contributes about half of our overall target for the year.

Just appoint a ‘Champion’ and sign up to our second MRBA Week by emailing . You can run, cycle, climb, bake cakes or host a raffle to raise money for us.  We’ll provide fundraising ideas and a range of support materials shortly. So watch this space for  more information about this event and follow us on social media.

All previous MRBAWeek Champions have been contacted with more details. If your organisation was unable to help us previously, we’d love it if you could participate this year! It’s easy to get involved. All you have to do now is appoint an MRBA Champion we can work with and sign up by emailing and then start thinking about how you might be able to raise some money for us between now and October. You could plan anything from:

  • Holding a coffee morning or cake sale to organising a ‘Great British Bake-off Challenge’
  • Hosting a Pot Luck lunch, fancy dress competition, raffle/quiz
  • Planning a sponsored run, cycle race or walking 1million steps within the week
  • Collecting money in a charity bucket in your reception area or at events, a ‘guess the number of sweets in a jar’

We’ll be providing fundraising ideas and offering additional support materials shortly. So watch out for our regular emails and news on social media.
