Childhood and cancer. Two words that should never go together. 

Every week, around five children in the UK lose their lives to cancer. That’s five families who are faced with the worst news possible. Too many children lose their lives to cancer, but new breakthroughs will save more lives. We need the space to put them into practice. A place where new treatments will help more children get better.

That’s why we’re building a world-leading new Children’s Cancer Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital, to bring new breakthroughs to life and help more children beat cancer.

Where your money goes

All the funds raised will go towards the development of cancer care at Great Ormond Street Hospital. In the event that costs change, or the needs of the hospital or patients change, we reserve the right to redirect funds for use against the hospital’s most urgent needs.

The power of your pounds

  • £50 could buy a play/therapy mat. These are soft play mats to make spaces safe and more comfortable for children to play on and for therapy sessions.

  • £100 could buy a table for a kitchen so that a family can eat together during long hospital stays.

  • £300 could buy a sensory projector to help to relax and distract patients before treatment, reducing anxiety and agitation and reducing the need for repeat procedures.

  • £500 could buy a patient bedside chair. A comfortable bedside chair for patients who are up and out of bed to give them somewhere to relax and rest.
