Weʼre raising £500 to Help fund the Cancer Treat Club which provides fun treats for adults with incurable cancer within Sheffield and the surrounding area
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hi, getting diagnosed with life limiting, secondary or terminal cancer is devastating, especially if you view yourself as still quite young. The Cancer Treat Club is for adults up to the age of 60 with such a diagnosis. There is a gap in the support for this age group other than the traditional meet ups that concentrate on your diagnosis. This group was created to enable members to do fun things to take their mind off the horror of it all. We meet up in and around Yorkshire and Derbyshire every month and do lovely things. We do not charge members for the this and every penny raised goes to funding our little treats. They are not extravagant and for some members it may be the only treat that they get due to the financial difficulties this terrible illness can inflict.

So important people can feel supported and less alone by meeting up with others in the same situation for treats, fun and chat. Adds quality to life for my friend Andrea and everyone in the club

My friend Gareth has asked for donations for 'small treats' in lieu of birthday pressies. Hope this small contribution makes a difference to someone...

You're doing great work! My friend Gareth Johnstone has requested people donate to your charity for his birthday rather than give him a gift, which I am very happy to do. Good luck.
