– Help more than 6,650 children and  young people

– Keep 1,271 families close to their child during treatment at nine Homes from Home

– Give 5,047 grants to families, adding up to over £1 million, paying for things like travel to hospital apointments

– Give 340 families a break from the challenges of cancer at a holiday home
