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.'

Terri Jacobson who raced for us said: “I can’t even explain how incredible it feels to have done it. To be supported like we were, with love and hugs and sweaty kisses, is the best feeling imaginable! Every penny was worth the pain!”

Julia Wright, mother of 14-year-old Adam who we have entertained in UCH said: “Well done everyone and thank you for running for such an amazing cause. It brought tears to my eyes just watching this, remembering what a difference the charity made to the lives of our family while Adam was in hospital.”
