About Us



There are so many exciting, valuable and easy ways to get involved with Cancer Research UK, all vital to the continued research into this devastating disease.

  • Cancer Research UK relies on the energy and initiative of fundraisers to continue their world-class research.
  • Our committee has raised over £900,000 over twenty years.
  • The Dolls House Fair, held in the Town Hall for 10 years, raised over £100,000, and now Pat Cutforth, committee member and well-known miniaturist and dolls house expert, continues to raise over £15,000 annually for CR UK with her own sales and exhibiting at Miniatura at the NEC Birmingham.
  • Marlborough Gardeners’ Fair raised over £65,000 in the ten years it look place annually in the Town Hall.
  • Our now closed Marlborough Spring Fair - a celebration of Spring and Summer Living - has raised thousands of pounds for CR UK.  Watch this space for our new event in 2018.
  • Feast of Food, a wonderful event, has now ceased and we are incredibly proud of the huge sums we have given to CR UK from this event.  Thank you to everyone who supported us over many years.
  • Marlborough Christmas Fair raises funds for CR UK, Brighter Futures and the Prospect Hospice. There will not be a Christmas Fair in December 2020 due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
Coffee mornings, barn dances and other events also take place, raising essential funds for CR UK

Our CR UK team is project-based.  

This means our members can focus on whatever fundraising event they are particularly keen on whilst safe in the knowledge they have the full support of the committee.  They can rally their own friends to put together an event, with committee support on the day, if that is what they prefer to do.

If you have a good idea, you can count on the team to help you bring that idea to fruition.  Event management expertise and extensive experience in the marketing of events is always available to assist on new projects if required.

Committee meetings take place approximately 4 times a year, including the Annual General Meeting.  These meeting are an excellent platform to introduce new projects for discussion and to enjoy basking in the success of our events.

Do join us.  We need new members with fresh ideas.
