Instead of enjoying egg hunts, chocolate treats and fun with their loved ones, children like Sayuri will likely spend this Easter in a hospital bed, enduring more treatment for cancer.
Many of these children will be feeling poorly, lonely and frightened. What they really need to help them through their treatment is a cuddle from a special teddy.
Our warmable Easter teddies can bring a child comfort when they need it most – and we want to send 600 of them to children’s cancer wards across the UK this Easter. Each teddy costs just £10 to deliver and you can add a special message to the one you help to send.
Your warmable teddy will come with a tag on which our volunteers will write your message. And we’ll keep you updated on the impact your kindness has had to a child with cancer.
So will you send a ted to a hospital bed, and give a child like Sayuri some Easter cuddles?
Sayuri has thankfully not had to undergo a major operation for over 16 months, and there’s been no tumour growth since then. But because there remains a risk of further relapse, this brave little girl undergoes an MRI scan under general anaesthesia every three or four months.
Help us send more Easter cuddles today. Thank you.
How you can help us deliver Easter Cuddles
This Easter, there will be children with cancer in hospitals throughout the UK. Going through this ordeal tough, and can be isolating and upsetting for these vulnerable children. You can reach out to them by giving £10 today. Your donation will help us to send the softest warmable ted straight to their hospital bed, delivering a very special cuddle in time for Easter. They’ll also be able to read the message in your gift tag – and know how much you care.
How it works
Send a ted to a hospital bed this Easter for just £10.
How will my £10 gift help children with cancer?
Your donation will help us to send 600 teddies to children receiving treatment for cancer in hospitals across the UK this Easter. We are aiming to deliver the teds in mid April, just in time for the Easter weekend.
Where will you send the teddies to?
We have reached out to children’s cancer wards and hospices across the UK. With your help we can send out 600 teddies in time to provide an Easter Cuddle.
I need cancer support, can you help me?
Of course. Please take a look at our Cancer Kits and Cancer Coach. These services are available free of charge to cancer patients and people who have completed their treatment.
I’d like to set up a regular gift to help even more children and adults in 2022
Thank you so much! You can set up a monthly gift here. We really appreciate our donors’ support as we are only a small charity and we do not receive any government support.
What if you raise more money than you need?
Our Easter Cuddles campaign aims to deliver 600 warmable teddies to children being treated for cancer in hospital this Easter. If we’re lucky enough to raise more money than we need, any extra will be used to help fill cancer kits to send out to cancer patients. We receive no government support and our services are needed more than ever since the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you.
