Fundraising and volunteering

Fundraising for UCARE is one of the most effective ways of helping us with our work as a charity, especially in these difficult times.

UCARE needs you!

Would you like to be part of a newly-formed fundraising committee?

This could involve helping us with setting up UCARE events and/or organising an event of your own in your community. You all have so many different skills which make you invaluable. This will not only raise essential funds for us, but also helps raise the reach of UCARE and urological cancers with the public. This can save lives by encouraging someone to get checked where early diagnosis is key. Please get in touch at

We would love to hear from you if you have a fundraising idea, and in the meantime…

Ways you can support us

Virtual Fun*raising for UCARE

Choose to take on a 5km, 10km, Half Marathon (13.1miles) or Marathon (26.2 miles) challenge at whatever pace suits you, in your own time. Run, jog or walk the distance in a day, a week, a month or longer.

All abilities are welcome, whether you’re a seasoned runner or a complete beginner.

Hair-raising fundraising

The one certainty in the recent lockdown has been that our hair keeps growing – many of you will be looking forward to that first visit to the hairdresser or barbers.

Could we ask you to consider donating the equivalent of 10% of your haircut fee, or even what you’ve saved over the past few months? Please send us your before and after photos for us to share online.

Online shopping support for free

Did you know that you could be raising money for us at the same time as doing your online shopping? We would be very grateful if you would consider nominating UCARE as your good cause on the following sites…

Fundraising Pack

Whether you want to run a marathon, organise a quiz, have a cake stall or any other great fundraising ideas, we are always here to discuss and support you as much as we can. We will advertise your event on our website and other media and can supply you with t-shirts, buckets, posters etc.

To help you with an event we have lots more information and downloadable resources in our Fundraising Pack

Nilay Patel Memorial Fund

After the sudden death in May 2014 of the young, very talented urological surgeon Mr Nilay Patel, we decided to set up a fund in his memory.
