Why we need your help

Iris is an international advertising and marketing network. Founded in 1991 by a group of pioneers unhappy with the marketing establishment, it has now grown to over 1,000 employees worldwide.

Recently one of our founders has been battling cancer, and whilst fighting his own battle he has been raising money for Children with Cancer UK.

In 2019, ten Iris staff in the London Office ran the London Marathon and raised more than £26,000 for Children with Cancer and this has inspired 25 of us to run the London Marathon in 2020 to help support this brilliant charity. It's an amazing and testing challenge, but we're privileged to be able to run and raise money for something so worthwhile.

Thanks for visiting our page, please give generously.

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. 

With your support Children with Cancer UK can fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded. 

Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. We also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost. 

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.

Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together.

Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
