If you would like to put on an event to raise money on our behalf, either as an individual or through your workplace or another organisation, we would be delighted to hear from you.

We believe that raising money for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care should be a joint venture and we will be happy to support you in any way we can. For example, our Fundraising team can give you advice, help you plan and perhaps run your event, help you with publicity, lend you promotional material, and, as appropriate, provide Cherry Lodge signs, T-shirts and certificates.

Whether your plans are big or small we would be delighted to hear from you. We can help you over the phone, in person at our Centre, or by coming to talk to your group. For more information please contact our Charity Administrator and Fundraising Events Coordinator, Tina Papasavva, on 020 8441 7000 or email tina@cherrylodgecancercare.org.uk.

Summer Soulstice Virtual 2021

Earlier in the year, it became apparent that plans for a live Summer Soulstice Festival in 2021 would have to be abandoned. The Summer Soulstice crew once again were determined not to be beaten by the coronavirus and CL thanks them for putting on another hugely impressive online fundraising event: Summer Soulstice Virtual 2021, which took place from 25th-27th June. See our Recent News post and the Summer Soulstice website for more information, photos and videos – and note that there is still time to help Summer Soulstice support Cherry Lodge by making a donation at www.soulfund.uk.

Third-party Events in 2020

In Spring to Summer 2020, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic caused the cancellation of a range of fundraising events planned by third-party supporters. These included Dawn Ledgard’s Spring 2020 Clothes Sale (planned for 6th April), the Mayor of Barnet’s 1920s Gala Dinner and also Summer Soulstice’s Springy Brews & Soul (both due to have taken place on 25th April), followed by cancellation of Summer Soulstice 2020 (scheduled for 27th June), which, as usual, would have been Cherry Lodge’s biggest annual third party fundraising event of the year. We are sorry for the disappointment that these necessary cancellations have caused to event organisers and also to everyone who had purchased tickets.

Our gallery, below, opens with a notice for Large Aid, a 24-hour fundraising music extravaganza from Psychobilly Kicks Back and Doghouse Radio, broadcast from 3rd to 4th October 2020. Next are posters for two Summer Soulstice events, one held after and one before the coronavirus struck: Summer Soulstice Virtual 2020 (25th to 28th June) and Summer Soulstice’s January Brews & Soul (25th January 2020). We then include publicity for three events organised by the 2019-20 Barnet Mayor’s Appeal in support of Cherry Lodge Cancer Care and Home-Start Barnet. The Mayor’s ‘Money Can’t Buy’ Virtual Auction and the Mayor’s Virtual Raffle were both held online on Saturday 25th April 2020 to replace the cancelled Gala Dinner. Finally, we include a poster for the Mayor’s Appeal Valentine Jazz Soiree, held on 16th February 2020, which was our last live event before lockdown.
