MAKE A DONATION

Why your donations matter

Cancer can be a very lonely and anxious time, with young people isolated for long periods away from friends, family, and school. The pandemic has amplified this to unimaginable levels. Your donation means more young people can experience the magic of the Trust and start to believe in a brighter future.

The importance of monthly donations
Many young people need support over time. As monthly donors, the ongoing generosity of our Friends of the Trust, make it possible for young people to stay with the Trust for as long as they need that support.

Because of the Trust, young people feel…

Accepted

They meet and make friends with others who have has similar experiences - often for the first time - and stop feeling like ‘the only one’.

Independent

They have fun and rediscover independence away from home and their ‘cancer bubble’. They realise what they are capable of again, physically, mentally and socially.

Optimistic

Their sense of purpose and self-worth increases and they start to re-establish their place in the world by getting back into education or work and reconnecting with family and friends.

Which leads to…

Improved mental wellbeing

Belief in a brighter future
