Don't forget - once you have chosen your fundraiser, get in touch and let us know so we can give you all the support you need to make it a huge success!


Join this year’s big campaign #GIVEUPACUP

This Christmas we are asking if you can spend £3 on a hot drink in the morning, then why not consider donating that £3 to charity instead?

Just £3 goes a long way to helping find safer treatments for children diagnosed with cancer and by making such a simple swap in the morning – you can play a role in making a difference!

To donate simply text GIVEUPACUP to 70085 – or click the link below to find out more!
