Today it’s your chance to win £25,000
Enter our Summer Grand Draw for your chance to win £25,000 and support more children like Josh.
Each ticket costs just £1 and could help more children like Josh ring the end of treatment bell and survive cancer.
Josh was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, a very aggressive cancer, when he was only three years old. His gruelling cancer journey began straight away after diagnosis and his treatment made him incredibly ill.
Thanks to previous cancer research, his doctors knew the best course of treatment for Josh. After four intensely difficult months for Josh and his family, they were so overjoyed to reach the end of his treatment and ring the bell together.
Enter our Summer Grand Draw today for your chance to be one of our lucky winners and help more children with cancer ring the end of treatment bell.

How your money helps
Who you're helping
For just £1 a ticket you can help bring hope to children like Josh. His mum, Jane, shares their story below:
Josh was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, a very aggressive cancer, at the age of three. No one could have ever prepared us for the pain and total devastation of hearing the words: “I’m really sorry but Josh has cancer”. Within seconds, our life fell apart and shattered into millions of tiny pieces.
The very next day, his Hickman line was fitted and very intensive chemotherapy began. Ward 84 at Royal Manchester’s Children Hospital became our new temporary home. He was hooked up to so many things to help him, including being “fed” through his Hickman line
The end of treatment bell in our ward became our symbol of hope; and we longed for the day that Josh would get to ring it and we could start the next chapter of his life. Finally it happened after four difficult months. When Josh rang that bell loud and proud, everyone cheered and celebrated. It was such a special moment.
We are now looking forward to the brighter times ahead of us and creating lots more memories with our amazing son, our very own real life superhero.
Helping more children like our Josh reach the end of treatment bell is so important to us. Playing the Summer Grand Draw is a fun way to get involved and help!
