Children with Cancer

VISION Is a world where no child dies of cancer. A BRIEF HISTORY Children with Cancer UK are a charity established by Eddie and Marion O'Gorman following the tragic deaths of two of their children to cancer within nine months of each other. What began as a small memorial charity in 1988 has involved into a major force in paediatric oncology, raising over £230 million in over 200 research projects to help fight the injustice of cancer in children. WE FUND RESEARCH We currently fund more than 50 research projects at centres of excellence around the UK. WE HELP FAMILIES Our funding helps build patient family accommodation homes near hospitals, giving families somewhere to stay together close to where their child is being treated. Our funding also helps offer financial assistance for essentials like travel, food and every day costs. And we organise fun days out where patients and their families can lose themselves in happiness and laughter. WE RAISE AWARENESS We are currently funding our first ever outdoor advertising campaign along with our first national television campaign. WHY SUPPORT US? Every day 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive. But we still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell. HOW WOULD OUR PARTNERSHIP WORK? Lockton would become a Platinum Corporate Partner and would receive the full support of the Charity with an Account Manager and support from both the Comms Team and the Regional team to ensure we provide national coverage to all your locations. We would work with you to design a fundraising plan and decide whether you wished to raise funds that are restricted against a specific project which in turn would give you naming rights. We would provide your staff with numerous volunteering opportunities including helping at our spectacular days out for patient families. We would also work with you to provide volunteering opportunities at our welfare homes to help with painting, gardening and even cooking for the patient families. We would work with you to gain your staff places in all our sports events including; the London Marathon (for which we have the most UK Charity places available), Ride London, Swim Serpentine, Ironman, New York Marathon and Tough Mudders, our charity has many bonded places available and we would secure places for Lockton through our partnership. Finally, we would work with you at every step of the way to ensure the engagement of ll your staff through a communications plan and a regular Newsletter specifically for Lockton staff to update on all upcoming charity events that staff can participate in.
