On 1st October we will be holding a very special event with our friends at Zippos Circus, giving children with cancer and their families an amazing day out.
Every child will have a fun-packed day with the chance to see brilliant acts and meet other children with cancer. All the children go home with a goody bag and a huge smile on their faces!
Please help to give a child an Amazing Day Out
Some children use the day to celebrate the end of their harsh treatment. For others, it’s a day to have a much-needed break from chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
Watch our video of the children enjoying an Amazing Day Out at Zippos Circus:
