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.

Thanks so much for considering sponsoring us - it means a lot to all of us and a lot of other people who would be cycling if they could. 


Most of us have done very little cycling before, and are going to feel extremely pleased with ourselves when (no if's!) we see Edinburgh having cycled all the way from Glasgow. But it's a cause we all feel very strongly about, and feeling stiff for a few days afterwards is nothing compared to what those we're raising money for are going through. 


It's Good 2 Give only officially came to life in April, but we've already raised over £20,000 - profit - for young people with cancer and their families. Our first major goal is to raise the money to build a respite house so families affected by cancer can spend some time together in a safe, specially designed environment. On a day-to-day basis, however, It's Good 2 Give provides support of another kind - anything that can make the lives of those impacted by cancer in any way easier. Whether that's a pampering kit, a specially designed mobile phone, or an experience a child has always wanted, we'll find a way to make it happen. 


We're little and local. Our fundraising has another aim - to involve the community and prove to everyone that giving shouldn't be dutiful or a drag. It should be interesting, useful, sociable - and fun! What's more, because we're an entirely volunteer-run organisation, 100% of the money you donate will go to the cause. No rent, no wages, no waste. 


£1, £10 - £100! Whatever you can give, it'll be hugely appreciated. Thank you from all of us at It's Good 2 Give!
