When is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month?
17th November is World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
What is Challenge 24?
Challenge 24 has been designed in honour of the 24 people who die every day in the UK from pancreatic cancer. This is unacceptable and so we are challenging you to take on a '24' inspired fundraiser this November.
You could walk, jog or cycle 24 miles throughout November or create your very own challenge, it' entirely up to you.
Take on Challenge 24 and you could help fund research breakthroughs that could save lives. Sign up here.

Can someone come and speak at my event?
We would of course love to attend all of our supporter’s events, but we are a small team and so are unlikely to be able to attend every fundraising event. However, we can definitely write you an amazing speech and create you a fantastic video from the team at the charity if these are needed. To talk about this further, please drop us an email on email@example.com.
Are there fundraising rules and regulations I need to be aware of?
Yes- you can check out our information about fundraising and the law here. Or give us a call on 0203 535 7090 to chat about it.
