Our Events

Want to get involved with Spread a Smile? We have cookery demonstrations, concerts, sports and challenge events plus a special fundraising dinner every two years. Take a look at our upcoming events below for ideas.


Spread a Smile receives no government funding; we are funded entirely by your support. The generous supporters who take part in our events enable us to continue our work brightening the days of seriously ill children and teenagers.

By supporting our events you are helping children like Chloe, who we first met as a frightened two-year-old who had just been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. Her dad said: 'My Chloe was full of fear until you came into our lives. You make a real difference - it's not just smiles you spread.'
