1 Your Fundraising

For the past nine years, the lung cancer community have used Shine a Light fundraising activities to come together as one   to advocate for change in the lung cancer space. This year, we are encouraging our community to fundraise safely by completing a personal challenge or by hosting a virtual event.

Some ideas to get you inspired:

  • A bake sale with a no contact door drop
  • A virtual quiz over zoom, challenge your friends and family
  • Take part in an exercise challenge like a marathon, lunge or sit up challenge to complete in November
  • Hold a raffle, try asking local businesses to support you with prizes like a meat tray, bouquet or gift basket.

Join us for flagship week 20-27 November 2020:

  • Encourage your workplace to get involved by holding a morning tea to raise awareness, people could even bring a gold coin! Some workplaces even offer matched giving, check in with your HR department to see if they do.
  • In lieu of our gala ball join us for Fancy Friday on 27 November 2020. Dress up in your best frock, suit or formalwear, take a photo and tag us on social media @lungfoundation #ShineALight #FancyFriday.

We are here to help! If you need support, contact our friendly team on 1800 654 301 or
