Celebrating 100 days until the Grand Départy


In just 100 days the Tour de France Grand Départ is coming to the UK. Marie Curie is throwing a Grand Départy to celebrate and now is the time to register for your very own Grand Départy fundraising pack and help us put on the biggest party the UK has ever seen.

The Grand Départy is the perfect way to celebrate one of the world’s greatest sporting events while raising money for Marie Curie. And there are loads of ways to get involved:

  • Go Cycling – Organise a cycling tour of your town or take part in our cycle to work week and get your friends to sponsor. You could contact your local gym and see if they would like to hold a static cycle or sponsored spin class.

  • Go Yellow – Have a day at work or school where everyone wears yellow. You could also hold a bake sale where everything you make is yellow.

  • Go French – Hold a French-themed dinner party for your friends or do something more active like a French sports day.

The Grand Départy is all about getting your family, friends and local community together to do something great for charity. No matter what you do, all the money raised will go towards helping us give more free care to terminally people and their families.

Register for your Grand Départy fundraising pack today and get Départy started.
