Marvellous Makeathon

Unleash your creativity wth our Marvellous Makeathon! Taking the time to do something creative can help your mental wellbeing.

Marvellous Makeathon for Lymphoma Action


Thank you to everyone who took part in our Marvellous Makeathon competition - it was amazing to see your creations! We are delighted to announce that our winner was Barbara with her crochet woodpecker made in honour of her mum who has lymphoma. 

While our competition is now closed we would still like to encourage you to unleash your creativity as part of our focus on positive mental wellbeing during 2021 for our 35th anniversary. Taking the time to do something creative can help your mental wellbeing - as well as being fun, slowing down and getting into a creative flow can help to reduce stress and anxiety.

Here are a few ideas:

  • paint a picture
  • bake a cake
  • make some music
  • write a poem
  • knit a scarf 
  • build a bug hotel
  • press some flowers and make a collage 
  • take some photographs 
  • get gardening - perhaps you could create a sensory herb garden, or a wildlife garden?

You might like to join our Marvellous Makeathon Facebook group to see what other people are getting up to! It's a lovely way to get inspired and connect with others. 

We'd love to see your creations on social media - tag us and use the hashtag #MarvellousMakeathon. We're Lymphoma Action on Facebook, @LymphomaAction on Twitter and @Lymphoma_Action on Instagram.

If you have any questions our fundraising team are here to help! Please email us at or call us on 01296 619419. 

Lymphoma Action is proud to have been making a difference for 35 years.

Thank you so much for your support. With your help we can make sure no one has to face lymphoma alone.
