What does this mean to your charity?

We are delighted to have reached our £250 bronze milestone. Thank you to all of our supporters for helping us to receive these free donations. £250 will make a huge difference to the lives of children here in Northern Ireland.

Our Family Support Service helps families cope with the disruption to ordinary family life and minimises the long-term impact on children's emotional well-being when a mum, dad or close family member has cancer.

It costs £100 per child to attend our CLIMB (Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery) ? a six week programme for primary school aged children to help them understand cancer through art, craft and play. It helps them talk about their fears and gives them the chance to meet other children in the same situation. It also gives parents and carers time-out to meet. £250 will go a long way in helping us to sustain this programme.
