    Weʼve raised £2,000 to Raise money for ALK+ve research

    Funded on Tuesday, 1st June 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    My mother, my mother in-law and myself, are hand-making high quality masks to sell and raise money for ALK+ve research.
    More info here:
    When my husband was 33 he had a sudden seizure and was diagnosed with a rare genetic mutation lung cancer, ALK positive. This cancer tends to affect younger, non smokers and unfortunately, as they don't fall into the screening bracket for lung cancer it is not found until it is stage IV. We need research and clinical trails in the UK to extend his life, and many others in a similar situation. Lung cancer is the most underfunded cancer and the biggest killer worldwide.

    If you would like a high quality handmade mask please make a minimum donation of £5, then click the contact me button at the bottom of the page to send me your address, and which mask you would like from the pictures, and what size, i.e men's or woman's sizes where applicable.
    I will be updating the pictures regularly so if you don't see anything that might suit you this week, please do visit again.
    All masks are machine washable and are 100% cotton unless stated otherwise. They are made up of 2 or 3 layers of fabric depending on thickness of material but please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.

    Women's masks:

    Mens and womens masks:

    We can also make kids masks in any of the above material plus these added materials suitable for ages 5 - 10.

    Please note that the first material on this list comes up a little smaller and would be more suited to a 3 -6 year old.

    Here's a few pictures of the masks in action!

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
