Mad March

WHY Cancer Charity

Mad March is a huge moment for We Hear You and in 2015 and 2016 it raised over £65,000! And in 2017 we are delighted to announce that we raised another £22,606! 

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 hatters tea party at home or in the work place, organising a pub quiz, throwing a cake sale to signing up to our Mad March skydive 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! Watch this space for more news on what plans we have for 2018!

Get Involved in Mad March

Mad March is over for another year and we had a fabulous March 2017, with so many things happening! It won't be long however and we will soon start planning for Mad March 2018.

There will be many ways you can get involved in Mad March. If you're super organised and want to start planning already then these are some of our suggestions, but you might have some fantastic ideas of your own - anything goes! 

Take part in our Mad March Spring 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.

Mad March Skydive

Mad March wouldn't be Mad March without our now regular fundraising skydive taking place. We will let you know dates for 2018 as soon as we have them. You can find out more about our next planned skydive here.

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 your tea party resource pack, which will include posters and invitations to publicise your event and raffle tickets to sell on the day, please email You can read our top tips for holding a tea party or coffee morning here

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
