  • Mission statement

    The Trust's objective is to aid young people fighting cancer throughout Cornwall, Devon and the Isles of Scilly by the provision of grants which can be used to relieve their physical and financial needs.

    We endeavour to support young cancer patients and their families. We do hope that as the charity grows we can widen the personal criteria of beneficiaries.
