The ChangeStar Charity Calendar is the ultimate list of charity fundraising events and awareness days for the UK in 2018.
We help the public to find, share and get involved in events, and enable good causes to ensure their events and awareness days reach the widest possible audience.
If your charity has an event to add to the list or if you’d like to advertise on the site, tell us here! It’s FREE to add up to 5 basic posts.

The ChangeStar Charity Calendar, featuring over 190 UK fundraising and awareness events, has been running for 3 years. A wide range of charities use it – from the biggest (such as Macmillan Cancer Support and NSPCC) to local charities. Feedback from UNICEF was that “We really appreciate you giving us this opportunity”.
The most popular charity events in the UK
Some of the best-known fundraising events in the UK are listed, such as BBC Children in Need, the London Marathon, Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and Comic Relief.
Charities can list up to five events completely free of charge. These can be sponsored challenge events, such as runs, bike rides and treks, ‘sacrifice’ challenges such as giving up alcohol or chocolate and awareness days such as Fairtrade Fortnight, World Down’s Syndrome Day and International Women’s Day. To get more exposure for their event, charities can also take out a Featured Listing or Advert.
The ChangeStar team also pick an event from the calendar every year to take part in themselves! In 2017 Kate Wright, ChangeStar Account Director, chose The London Moonwalk, raising over £1,000 for breast cancer charities.
