We know that life is no picnic at the moment. As we all face the challenge of staying safe at home, we want to encourage you to come together online and help us continue to invest in high quality research for children with cancer who are currently having to shield and self-isolate.

We need your support more than ever to give hope to children facing cancer amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) uncertainty. Raise over £5 and receive one of our Children with Cancer UK wrist bands as a thank you for all your amazing fundraising efforts.

Don’t forget – if you can’t host your own picnic you can still support our cause and donate the price of a coffee and cake.

Now, more than ever before, we need your help. In the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, families of children and young people with cancer are facing an immense added pressure. Their child is not only facing cancer, but may also be facing a higher risk of infection. Some types of cancer and treatments can lead to a weakened immune system which makes it harder for those affected to fight off infections like the Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

By hosting your perfect picnic for us, you are helping us fund lifesaving research that aims to develop more effective curative therapies with fewer toxic side effects, giving hope to young cancer patients and their families everywhere.

What inspired this event?

Phoebe was diagnosed with Wilms Tumour, a type of kidney cancer, just before her second birthday. After the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak led to a lockdown, Phoebe was unable to hold a bake sale at school. Instead she organised a virtual tea party with a group of friends over Zoom. Together, Phoebe and her friends raised lots of money to help children with cancer. Our huge thanks to Phoebe and her friends for their creativity that has helped inspire this event.
