Get baking 

Have fun in the kitchen by holding your own bake sale.  

  • You could take orders and drop them off to friends and family in the local area.
  • We’ve got everything you need to hold your own bake sale.  From downloadable bunting, cake toppers and a poster for you to advertise your cake sale.
  • The Hopeful Kitchen UK also has shared some of her favourite recipes to give you some inspiration.
Second hand items

Second-hand sale

We’re spending more time in our homes than ever before so it’s a great time to have a clear out and give your unwanted items a new home by holding a second-hand sale for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

  • Get your children to help by sorting through their toy collection and help with pricing up and selling the items.  It really is something the whole family can get involved with.
     
  • There are a number of websites you can use, such as eBay, to sell your second-hand items.
     
  • On the website you will be able to select what percentage of sale goes directly to the charity.
