Its Good 2 Give!
It's Good 2 Give offers support to children and young people with cancer and their families. We also try to make life a little bit easier on a day to day basis. Some of the things we do are: Parents Packs Proper shower gel, an eye mask, a good book - little luxuries to make extended hospital stays a bit more bearable Nutritional snacks Smoothies, Nuts, fruit, cheese and biscuits, crisps and treats - parents and patients need their energy at this hard time Practical workshops - fun and practical workshops for young cancer patients and their families - from bookbinding to jewellery making, cupcake decorating to confidence building there's something for everyone. Requests A phone to call friends, or a laptop to keep on top of schoolwork or vital repairs to the family car to keep them mobile - we can't promise but we always try We are currently building a retreat for families to use for a short break together - a purpose-built, restful, safe place for those affected by cancer. We are also supporting the work at the new Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh by funding wall art and improved seating for parents.

Hi, thanks for visiting our page.

We are taking part in a Dragon Boat racing event on 23rd June 2012 down by Ocean Terminal in Leith, Edinburgh. The aim is to help us raise some money for It's Good 2 Give, a charity which Laura greatly benefited from during her treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma.

We are hoping that there will be over 40 Dragon Boats competing on the day. Each boat will have 16 rowers, a helmsman and a drummer. The day starts around 10am with the emphasis being very much about team building and competition, with each team getting a guaranteed minimum of three timed races in the qualifying rounds.

The Grand Final will take place at around 4pm and is a race to the finish using all the available Dragon Boats in one last and very dramatic race to the line to win the 'Tom Farmer Friendship Quaich'.
