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. We provide these in Edinburgh and Glasgow Children's Hospitals.

Nutritional snacks

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

Practical support

We can provide ironing vouchers to give to parents  help with that often time consuming household task. 

In 2017, we opened our Ripple retreat for families to use for a short break together – a purpose-built, restful, safe place for those affected by cancer. Any young cancer patient (and their family) can apply to stay at our Ripple Retreat for a stay of up to six days. There is no cost to the family to stay.  

In 2019, 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!  

In 2020 during the Covid19 lockdown period we supported over 100 families with supermarket vouchers, games, craft kits, cooking kits and much more.

We also provided 3 vein finders worth £16,500 to the Oncology Wards of the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh and Glasgow Children’s Hospital. These will support the nurses and Doctors treating the young cancer patients, and in turn support the young person and their parents too.
