To launch Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2015, we invited children with cancer and their families to join us for a special golden afternoon tea. This was followed by a trip to the theatre to see Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Generous supporters, One Aldwych hotel, hosted the scrumdiddlyumptious tea themed around Willy Wonka’s magical world. From decadent golden eggs to blueberry buns and playful flavoured candy floss, every delicacy reflected the wit and wonder of Roald Dahl's classic tale.
The children were delighted to meet Olympic Gold Medallist and Dancing on Ice star, Jayne Torvill. And children’s TV presenter, Chris Jarvis was welcomed with open arms.

One Aldwych’s exterior will also be dressed in gold light throughout September to support the campaign.
The launch of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month takes us into a busy month of activities. We hope that everyone will wear our gold ribbons, the symbol for the campaign, to show support for childhood cancer awareness.
Every day, more than 10 children are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. We are pleased to be part of this global effort to to raise awareness of childhood cancer.
