Lent is a time when people choose to give up luxuries such
as chocolate or wine. This year
we are asking our generous supporters who are giving something up for Lent to consider donating or fundraising £1 a day over the 40 days. These donations will help us provide the support our mums need, when they need it most.
We urgently need to scale
up our support services, particularly amidst the ongoing restrictions and impacts of COVID-19 to ensure that existing mums and newly diagnosed mums can access
the advice and support they desperately need.
£40 would go towards our ISW Appeal to enable us to increase our support by 25 hours a week for the next two years. This will ensure we can provide more intensive one to one support for mums the whole way through their cancer journey. Any amount will help!
£25 could pay for a video call for a recently diagnosed mum.
£70 could pay for two evening ‘drop in’ support sessions for mums.
£400 could pay for 1 week of dedicated support.
You can donate now
or set up a fundraising page through our dedicated appeal

We have a limited number of places available for the Great North Run 2021!
Unsurprisingly, most people who secured a place for 2020 chose to roll it over, this means there is no general ballot this year and the 2021 event is already at capacity. So if you want to join us on that historic start line get in touch! (link to contact form or email
The 40th Great North Run should have gone ahead in 2020, but the impact of Covid-19 put celebrations on hold. The organisers are looking forward to marking that monumental milestone this September instead, while doing everything they can to keep you safe in these unprecedented times.
