Send a Cancer Support UK teddy for £10

Send a Cuddle for Christmas

Bring a smile and a warm cuddle to a child with cancer this festive season

Embargoed until 1st November, 2020

Things are hard for many of us this Christmas, but especially for children who are being treated for cancer. Instead of enjoying parties, presents and celebrations with their family, many who need to be in hospital will be separated from loved ones because of coronavirus, and going through painful cancer treatments.

These children really need a cuddle.

You can help with a gift of just £10. For this, we will send one of our teddies to a child who will spend Christmas in hospital being treated for cancer. Cancer Support UK will arrange for a teddy to be delivered safely to a child in a hospital or hospice in the UK. To add a personal touch, you can even send us a special message which we will have written on your ted’s gift tag!
