This month we have supported three different charities with our sales through Depop.
We have donated £1000 to Hope Against Cancer a local charity to our head office in Leicester. 5000 people a year are diagnosed with cancer in Leicestershire alone.
Hope Against Cancer’s focus is to beat cancer rather than manage the consequences. They prioritise research for early detection, treatment and prevention of cancer. They work for the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, working in partnership with local universities and hospitals. They fund cutting-edge research so that Leicestershire remains a hub of expertise in cancer research and treatment.
The second charity is The Grand Appeal for Bristols Children's hospital we donated £374.35.
They care for over 100,000 patients each year from across the South West and South Wales, covering the single largest geographic area of any children’s hospital in England.
Babies, children, and young adults with highly complex medical conditions – from rare genetic disorders, neurological conditions, and congenital heart disease to traumatic injuries, cancer, and kidney disease – are cared for around the clock by extraordinary staff. The Grand Appeal help with accommodation houses that provide a safe and supportive place for families stay while their child is in hospital. They invest in medical research programmes to ensure the hospital remains a hub of innovation, where every day experts pave the way for sick children through a network of projects with international impact. They fund state-of-the-art equipment to save lives. They provide music, play and art therapy to name just a few things they do.
The last but definitely not least charity we have chosen this month is the Children's Cancer and leukaemia Group. They do fabulous work and are at the forefront of helping treat children with cancer and leukaemia in the UK. We have donated £345.60.
Thank you for helping us help other people.
