    There are children in the UK who can not be treated in this country, for various reasons, so need to raise funds to help them obtain life changing and life saving treatment abroad. Life saving treatment can cost anything up to £250,000 per child.

    We will also be helping raise funds for research in to cancer as well as raising awareness of Neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer that affects children under the age of five. Not enough is know about this particular cancer and we would like to help change that.
