Supporting children with cancer

  • Comment

If you support a child aged 0 –16 requiring treatment for cancer, you can provide them with a free, special present via Tom’s Gift to brighten up their day.

Katie, diagnosed with leukaemia in 2017

Tom’s Gift is made up of a mystery gift and a £30 Debenhams gift voucher for them to spend in-store or online, on anything they would like.

When she received hers, Katie (pictured above) said ‘The gift card made me feel warm inside. When I received it, I couldn’t wait to get out the house and spend it as it gave me something joyful to focus on. Especially as I had been at home for a while apart from hospital visits.’

In 2017 we were able to reach more children diagnosed with cancer, having dispatched 1,067 Tom’s Gift packs, compared to 656 in 2016. We hope to support even more children in 2018.
