A night in with the girls. For Cancer Research UK

A night in with the girls. For Cancer Research UK

Forget fighting your way to the dance floor, queuing for the toilet, or standing in the cold waiting for the bus home. This November, thousands of women across the country will be saying ‘I’m In’ as they get together for ‘The IN Thing’, Cancer Research UK’s new fundraising initiative that combines a great night in with the girls with a great cause.
Cancer Research UK has teamed up with some of the UK’s best talent including TV and radio broadcaster Edith Bowman, model and designer Twiggy and actress and dancer Camilla Dallerup to help you organise your ultimate night in, with inspirational ideas, party planning guides, delicious recipes and playlists. So whether you’re catching up on the couch, hosting a dinner party, or dusting off that old karaoke machine, you’ll have all the support you need to create an unforgettable night for all your friends.   
The IN Thing is the perfect excuse to get together while raising money for Cancer Research UK’s life saving work.  Hosts can set a fundraising target for their group and collect donations upfront or on the night. Invite friends, family, neighbours and colleagues and indulge in a fun event at home to help  beat cancer sooner.
Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for more information, inspiration, top tips, and exclusive offers.
Three reasons why in is the new out this November:
  • Life is busy, so this is the perfect excuse to make time for you and your besties!
  • It’s pre-Christmas party season so make the most of staying in while you can
  • Strictly Come Dancing and X-Factor are both on TV providing the perfect background to any girlie catch up
Cancer Research UK’s The IN Thing runs from 1st – 30th November.  Be part of The IN Thing along with thousands of women across the UK, and help beat cancer sooner.  Find out more at
