Its Good 2 Give! encourages giving in many forms -
giving ideas,
giving time,
giving skills,
giving blood and
giving money.


It’s Good 2 Give offers support to young cancer patients and their families.

We  try to make life a little bit easier on a day-to-day basis. Some of the things we do are:

Parents’ Packs

All the essentials plus a little bit more for that unexpected stay in hospital.

Nutritional snacks

Smoothies, icecream, fruit, cheese and biscuits: parents and patients need their energy at this hard time.

Workshops

From rockclimbing to jewellery making, cupcake decorating to confidence building our workshops provide a practical and fun way for young cancer patients to spend time with siblings and parents

Practical support

In 2013 we introduced ironing vouchers to give to parents to help with that often time consuming household task. 

Requests

A phone to call friends, or a laptop to keep on top of schoolwork, vital repairs to a car to keep the family mobile: we can’t promise but we always try.

In 2015, we started to  build our Ripple retreat for families to use for a short break together – a purpose-built, restful, safe place for those affected by cancer. The Retreat will be available to any young cancer patient in Scotland.  To donate to our Ripple Retreat Appeal please click on Campaigns in the Find Out More box on the left of this page (it has a blue border).

In 2016, we are also supporting a project at the New Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh by funding upgrades to the paediatric cancer ward and providing comfy chairs for the parents to sit on - as a charity practical support is very important to us and this fits well with that ethos!  If you would like to donate to that Appeal then do click on Campaigns in the Find out more box.

Please do have a look at our website www.itsgood2give.co.uk

Led by award winning Volunteer Fundraiser, Lynne McNicoll OBE.  We are very lucky to have on board professionals in the form of our accountant,  project management, IT specialist who also donate their services.

Thank you for helping us achieve our goals.
