Our exciting new fundraising challenge is designed to bring out the entrepreneurs in your organisation and offers your employees the chance to put their skills to the test, raise money and ultimately help children affected by cancer. 


The challenge itself very simple; starting with a rubber duck on 1 September you have one month to head out and attempt to carry out a series of trades to obtain an item of higher value each time. You will then sell your final item and all the money you raise will go towards Wessex Cancer Trust.

The concept of the challenge originated with Canadian blogger Kyle MacDonald, who went from a red paperclip holding his CV together, to owning a house, in only 14 trades!

Wessex Cancer Trust believes that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it. Each year Wessex Cancer Trust help over 8,000 people in the local community.

All funds raised through our Zero to Hero Challenge will go towards supporting our Children's Support Service.
Cancer is hard to deal with at any age, but for children and young people, it can be particularly challenging. Counselling can provide an opportunity for them to talk about. Our support services ensure local children get the support and help they need.


Once you have registered, you will receive your rubber duck and a letter of authorisation. You are then ready to go out and start your journey to Hero status!

It's free to take part and to start helping your local community.
