FORCE focuses on local people, offering help and support – face to face.

The reality is that everyone knows someone affected by cancer and if they live in this area, their treatment will almost certainly have been advanced by our work. FORCE Cancer Charity works locally across Exeter, West and Mid Devon to provide:

  • Cancer Support and Information – face to face

  • Funding for local Cancer Research at the University of Exeter

  • State-of-the-art Equipment to improve cancer diagnosis and treatment

If you are able to support our work by raising funds at work, at home, in your community or by joining one of our events then that would simply be wonderful!

Do I need to tell you if I am doing a fundraising event for FORCE?

We receive lots of money each week from people who held events we knew nothing about. However, it is always lovely to hear what people are doing for us in the community and if we can help with balloons, bunting, buckets and any representation at the event we will. So please call us and let us know what you are planning on 01392 406153.

Can I raise money online?

Yes of course. We work with Virgin Money Giving and for most of our in-house events we set up the event on their website so it is easy for you to create your fundraising page.
