Fundraising supports special events, projects and experiences that go above and beyond to core NHS provision. Over just the last 12 months funds have been used to support poorly children and their families in a variety of different ways.
Frequent hospital visits can be very costly for families and we have been able to provide Costa Coffee gifts cards so that children and their parent can enjoy a drink and a cake when they are on site!
A difficult side effect of treatment for many children is to experience difficulty with walking and our fund has helped to provide wheelchairs and push chairs for our patients who need them.
A very much loved tradition for our team it to purchase bespoke 'end of treatment' cakes when children complete their treatment.
The pandemic has been a testing time for our families and with your support we have been able to purchase arts and crafts materials for the children to help keep them entertained.
Our charitable funds also enables us to purchase Christmas gifts, food hampers, and transform the Children's Clinic into a wonderful Santa's Grotto.
Over the years we have also taken children and their families to the Pantomime and have put on Halloween Parties each year where we buy treats for the children.
As well as much needed practical support the fund also allows us to provide 'special memories' for the children and their families.
Thank you so much for your support.
The Children of Worcestershire Cancer Fund is part of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Charity, and supports children from across Worcestershire receiving treatment at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.
