Cancer Research UK
Scottish Hockey is delighted to team up with Cancer Research UK and support the fight against cancer. Through the Club Pledge initiative, which hockey clubs across Scotland have signed up to support, the hockey family can come together to raise funds and support Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.
Hockey is the fun, friendly and exciting sport for life so let’s use hockey’s platform to help raise awareness and improve early diagnosis and prevention of cancer. We’re determined to help families stay together and bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Let’s do this together. Join our team and tackle cancer.

Stand Up To Cancer
In partnership with channel 4, Stand Up to Cancer is an annual fundraising campaign in October that brings the UK together to speed up progress in life-saving cancer research.
Stand Up To Cancer is different because it specifically funds a type of research called translational research. Translational research is specially designed to take ground-breaking discoveries from the lab and turn them into new treatments and tests that could actually save lives.
Stand Up To Cancer is a restricted fund, which means 100% of income is spent on research. This means we can get treatments from the lab to patients faster, helping to accelerate our life saving research.
For this year’s campaign there are a number of opportunities the clubs could access:
- Cash Collections
- Standing Up To Cancer Challenge on Friday 15th October
- Sunday Brunch Fundraiser
- Wear Orange
Contact Heather Duff for more info.
