Mad March

WHY Cancer Charity

Mad March is a huge moment for We Hear You and during the last 3 years it has raised over £90,000, funding more than 2000 counselling sessions.

Mad March is lots of fun to be a part of and there are many activities for people to join in with, from throwing a mad hatter's tea party at home or in the workplace, organising a pub quiz, having a mufti day at school, hosting a cake sale or running the Bath Half Marathon.

March really is the time to get involved with WHY and we hope to make 2018 bigger than ever! 

Get Involved in Mad March!

We are once again in the midst of Mad March planning and there are so many ways you can be part of our month long madness. 

Take part in our Mad March Online Auction 

Our Spring Auction has been an amazing success over the last three years! In 2017 it raised £3000 and funded 68 sessions of life changing support for children and adults affected or bereaved by cancer and other life threatening conditions. The need for support from WHY is greater than ever, our waiting list is the highest it has ever been and we desperately need to raise more money to cover the cost and reach those families in crisis. Our auction will run online from 9am Monday 12th March until 9pm on Sunday 18th March. Visit our auction page to bid on some amazing lots. 

Mad March Events

We’d love to see as many coffee mornings, tea parties, fancy dress days or other fundraising events taking part throughout March 2018 as possible. To let us know you are planning an event and to get a resource pack, which will include posters and invitations to publicise your event and raffle tickets to sell on the day, please email We've put together our top tips for holding a tea party or coffee morning

Plan your own event

Mad March is designed to be fun so feel free to pick your own event to organise and think as creatively as possible. It could be anything from a cake sale or fancy dress day at work to a sponsored head shave or day without speaking! If you are throwing a fundraiser we can provide you with t-shirts, leaflets, sponsor forms and posters to make your event bright and colourful. To let us know about your event please contact us
