Mind Over Cancer

Mind Over Cancer is a charity that supports the Mental Health of a young person given a cancer diagnosis between the ages of 0 and 29 as well as their family and support network. We understand that a cancer diagnosis doesn’t disappear when treatment stops, so our services are available to these young people and their loved ones at any stage of their life.

We launched in June 2021. Our services are currently available across East Anglia. We hope to expand our services UK-wide in the future Your support and donations will help to make this possible.

Samuels Charity

At the start of September 2013 Samuel was admitted to St George’s hospital in South London. He was diagnosed with a cancer, one that is very rare – Precursor T-Cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He saw how hard it was for the other children to suffer the pain, fear and loneliness of serious illness so he asked his dad to start a charity to help them.

Now, Samuel’s Charity helps thousands of seriously and terminally ill children in underfunded wards.

We provide entertainment equipment – Games Stands that have a new games console, 24 inch TV, storage for controllers and multiple games – the Stand is on wheels so can be used anywhere especially in isolation rooms where they are needed most. We also provide Accuveins – handheld scanner that reduces most or all of pain from injections for kids. These are just some of the items that transform the treatment and reduce the pain and depression so many children suffer daily.

Crohn’s & Colitis UK

We are the UK’s leading charity for the 300,000 patients living with either Crohn’s or Colitis- with the current figure believed to be almost double! People with the conditions face a lifetime of medication and, in many cases, major surgery. If left untreated, it can be fatal. Unlike many other diseases, there is a huge stigma attached leading many people to feel too ashamed or embarrassed to talk about it. This means that not only are they struggling with the devastating effects of Crohn’s or Colitis – they’re doing so alone

Streetsmart

StreetSmart was set up in 1998 by two ethically-minded London business people, William Sieghart, Chairman of StreetSmart, founder of Forward Publishing and Mary-Lou Sturridge, Former Director of The Groucho Club, Hotelier.

The idea was simple. During November and December in the run-up to Christmas, many people go out to eat in restaurants and celebrate the spirit of the holidays; so wouldn’t it be great if we could harness just a little of that “good cheer” and raise money for worthy charities at the same time people were enjoying a nice meal out?

The Charity raises money and then distributes it directly to the actual charities, hostels and projects that have the experience and facilities to help adults and children who are living on the streets, are homeless and want to get back on their feet. The money goes to charities providing for both basic needs and to those supplying the skills and resources needed to help in the long-term.

Herts Young Homeless

Herts Young Homeless is a unique charity in Hertfordshire providing services to support vulnerable people.

Our focus is on preventing homelessness – from education in schools and family mediation through to supporting 16-24 year olds in their first homes or caring for adults of all ages who have mental health issues and housing needs.

Our free services empower young people to be able to deal with the difficult situations in their lives, give them the ability and confidence to ‘do it themselves’ and ultimately find stability.
