Localised Social Events for Families Affected by Childhood Cancer.
Children with Cancer Fund (Polegate) is a small charity that aims to alleviate the suffering of children with cancer and their families by granting wishes, hosting social events and providing caravan breaks.
We believe that no family should feel alone at any point in their childhood cancer journey. This funding will enable us to provide exciting social events that unite children with cancer and their families with others in their immediate community going through the same experiences. The project unites over 130 families across East Sussex, Brighton and Hove, helping to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation that often come with a child’s cancer diagnosis. The events will provide a positive focus for the families, and a safe space to share their experiences, building strong support networks that can last a lifetime. Some of the events will include trips to our local adventure park, meals in local restaurants, mini-golf and go-karting. The project is driven by the families we support, with their thoughts and feedback shaping the activities we provide.
