To support the ongoing delivery of our wellbeing services, we’re asking for your help raising awareness and raising funds for the work we do.

Last year we provided 6,672 appointments to those affected by cancer and this number is rising each year. With your support we can make sure even more people can gain access, free of charge, to counselling, complementary therapy and podiatry.

Get Involved

Join us on Friday 29th of November 2019 for Cancer Support Scotland awareness day by taking part in #WearTartan and wearing a little (or a lot!) to your school, workplace or community group.

We’d love to hear all about your events and share them on our social media channels. Take photos and videos to capture all the fun before, during and after your event. If the 29th isn’t the right date for you, another day around that time is perfectly fine.

For fun and easy ways to get involved you can download our Awareness Day fundraising pack for workplaces and Awareness Day fundraising pack for community groups.

Please tag in Cancer Support Scotland and use #WearTartan

We have two posters which you can print and fill in with details of your event. Download our Wear Tartan and Donate £2 poster or our Fundraising Event poster.
