If you’re a family affected by childhood cancer, we’re here to help you.

We support children and young people with cancer and their families by supporting the Beads of Courage Oncology Programme in the UK, providing free fun days out, funding vital support services and free accommodation close to children’s hospitals across the UK.


Keeping families together

Over the years, over 75,000 guests have joined us at some of our amazing days out, which helps families to create precious memories away from the hospital ward. Our events are also a great way for families to meet and form support networks with others who are going through similar experiences.


Welfare - supporting families

We fund vital services to provide better care and practical support for young cancer patients and their families during and after childhood cancer treatment.
